MARIA Sole Ferrieri

MARIA Sole Ferrieri Caputi will become the first female official to take charge of a Serie A match when Sassuolo host Salernitana on Sunday, the Italian Referees’ Association (AIA) said on yesterday.

  Ferrieri Caputi became the first woman to officiate a top-level Italian match last year when Cagliari played Cittadella in the Coppa Italia. She joined Serie A’s officiating team in July.

  “This is a historic moment,” AIA president, Alfredo Trentalange told a news conference.

  Ferrieri Caputi joined the referees’ association in 2007, working in the provincial and regional leagues, before she started officiating Serie D matches in 2015.

  Her next step came in 2019 when she oversaw two Women’s European Championship qualifying games and, the following year, began refereeing Serie C matches, plus one Serie B clash between Cittadella and SPAL.
