Steinhaus to become first female referee in Bundesliga

The German Football Association (DFB) announced that Steinhaus - the first female professional referee in German football - has overseen games in the 2.

"It is on the one hand confirmation for the hard work I've done to get here, on the other hand also great incentive to continue to work".

The massively experienced Bibiana Steinhaus, who will officiate this season's UEFA Women's Champions League final, has been promoted to refereeing the Bundesliga after six seasons in the second division.

The 38-year-old, a police officer from Hanover, will take charge of games in the German top flight from next season.

"I am used to this pressure and am convinced I will find my feet quickly in the Bundesliga", she said.

"I like to give an early indication of what I expect and set the players good guidelines".

Iran sanctions 9 American firms as countermeasure
The US Treasury Department Wednesday announced unrelated, new sanctions in connection to Iran's ballistic missile program. The White House has also increased other sanctions against Iran that were still in place but relaxed.

"It has always been my dream to referee in the Bundesliga".

Steinhaus coolly brushed Guardiola's arm off and the Spaniard was criticised in the German media for inappropriate conduct.

The then-Fortuna Duesseldorf midfielder was banned for five games for telling Steinhaus that "women have no place in men's football" as he trudged off.

Steinhaus, who also officiated the 2015 women's World Cup final between the United States and Japan, isn't just breaking the glass ceiling in Germany, but it appears in all of European top-flight soccer.

Martin Petersen, Sven Jablonski and Soeren Storks will join the Bundesliga from August along with Steinhaus while Wolfgang Stark, Guenter Perl and Joachim Drees step down due to age limits. "I'm very much looking forward to the task that awaits me", Steinhaus told BBC Sport.
