History in the Italian League: Referee to Join Senior Referees | Israel today


For the first time ever, the captain of the Serie A decided to add Maria Sol Prairie Kapoti to the list of judges.

History in the Italian league.

The Serie A captains have announced the addition of the first referee ever to the referees in the first league ahead of the 2022/23 season.

The one who won the honor is Maria Sol Prairie Kapoti.

The 31-year-old Ferrari Kapoti has become the first woman to referee a team game from the First Division (Cagliari’s game in the Cup last season) and after receiving compliments for her performance in recent years she has received the promotion.

"This is a very beautiful moment and a moment of great satisfaction and it is also sad to think that someone should be surprised by the presence of a woman on the staff," said Alfredo Tarantalange, president of the Judges' Association in the boot country.

"Obviously it's news that Maria will be the first woman on the judging panel and this is a historic moment, but the promotion is a promotion that stems from her ability and not from one privilege or another."

Prairie joined the Referees Union in 2007, and worked in the district and regional leagues, before starting to referee the Serie D games in 2015.

Her next move came in 2019 when she oversaw two European Championship qualifiers for women, and the following year began judging Serie C games, plus one Serie B game between Kitadella and Spall.
