In addition to Frappartová, the Japanese Yoshimi Yamašitová and Salima Mukansangová from Rwanda are also on the referee list for the championship in Qatar, as well as assistant referees Brazilian Neuza Backová, Mexican Karen Díaz Medinová and American Kathryn Nesbittová.

Frappartová has a lot of experience in breaking milestones in the referee’s uniform. In December 2020, she became the first woman to officiate a Champions League match. It was a duel between Juventus Turin and Dynamo Kyiv.

As the first woman in history, she also whistled the first men’s match under the banner of the European Football Union. In August 2019, she decided the match for the European Super Cup in Istanbul, in which FC Liverpool defeated FC Chelsea 5:4 after shots from the penalty spot.
