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".

In addition, 19,000 wireline workers and DirecTV technicians in California, Nevada and CT are preparing for a strike as well. The CWA threatened the move could disrupt "a large number of retail stores" across the United States over the weekend.

"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.
