For the first time in history, the Maurice Revello Tournament will be 100% refereed by female referees, a world first made possible by a unique collaboration with FIFA. These 36 professional referees, who are in charge in renowned leagues in their countries, will prepare for the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup. Here are some of the referees who will cover the tournament:
