NFL Ref Will Be First Woman Ever To Officiate Super Bowl

NFL referee Sarah Thomas will be making history next month – as the first woman ever to officiate in a Super Bowl.

On Tuesday, the NFL announced its crew for Super Bowl LV, including Thomas as a down judge.

Thomas became the league’s first female referee in 2015. NFL officials are required to have a minimum of 5 years of experience to work a Super Bowl.

Super Bowl LV will kick off on February 7th from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL.

Will we ever see an all-female officiating crew work an NFL game? What about a female head coach?
