19 May 2017

A 38-year-old policewoman from Hannover, Steinhaus has officiated for DFB for 18 years and worked in the 2.

Since 2011, Steinhaus has served in Bundesliga 2 matches and also officiated the USA women's national team vs Japan in the 2012 Olympic gold medal match.

"For every referee, male or female, it is the goal to officiate in the Bundesliga", said Steinhaus, who is being promoted with three male colleagues, in a statement.

And she has now made further history with her promotion to the German top flight.

Steinhaus has refereed second-tier games for six years. "That is why I am happy about the trust the referee commission has shown". It was simply a turbulent roller coaster ride of emotions.

"It has always been my dream to be active as a referee in the Bundesliga".

"That this dream will come true naturally fills me with joy. I'm very much looking forward to the task that awaits me", Steinhaus told BBC Sport. Certainly, as a referee, I am under special scrutiny at the beginning of the season - even through the media.
