Bibiana Steinhaus, the only female Bundesliga field referee, will lead the Super Cup between Bayern Munich and Dortmund on Wednesday evening, the German Federation (DFB) announced on Wednesday.

Steinhaus, 41, will be the first female referee in this annual competition which pits the winner of the championship against that of the cup or, in the event of a double like this year, the winner of the championship against her runner-up from the previous season.

She was the first woman in the world to become a central referee of the first division of a major championship, in 2017-2018.
