AMIENS, France — Stephanie Frappart became the first woman to referee a match in the French first division when she took charge of the Amiens vs. Strasbourg game on Sunday.

The 35-year-old Frappart had already refereed at second-tier level in France and she will also referee at the women’s World Cup later this year.

The game finished 0-0.

Frappart showed yellow cards to two Strasbourg players in the first half and cautioned one player from each side late in the second half.
