Steinhaus says she aims "to make female referees a normal part of professional football and show simply that they belong in the game".

"Speaking to the DFB's official website, Steinhaus said: "[Referees chief] Lutz Michael Frohlich and his team are in constant exchange with us referees.

A 38-year-old German policewoman will next season become the first female referee in Europe's top leagues after she was promoted to officiate in the Bundesliga on Friday.

Steinhaus has been a referee for 18 years and has overseen matches in the second tier of German football since 2011.

"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". While 79 of those games went off without a hitch, there was one that caused stir when a player Steinhaus sent off for his second yellow card angrily told her, "Women have no place in men's football".

"I worked towards that in the past years and had to also suffer some setbacks".

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

Steinhaus' partner Webb refereed the World Cup final between Holland and Spain, becoming the first English referee to take charge of a World Cup final since Jack Taylor in 1974 - a game in which Holland lost to West Germany.

"I am used to this pressure and am convinced I will find my feet quickly in the Bundesliga", she said. So I am pleased that the referees' commission has placed its trust in me.
