Germany has the first female referee in Europe's top leagues. Her name is Bibiana Steinhaus. She is very happy. She said: "It's a dream come true." She is looking forward to her new job. She knows people and the media will be watching her. She is used to pressure. She will get used to her new job quickly.

Steinhaus has a lot of experience. She refereed a women’s World Cup final and the women's gold medal match at the Olympics. After she heard about her new job, she was "speechless". She was also curious. She said her feelings changed like a "roller-coaster ride". Her dream was to be a Bundesliga referee. Her dream came true.
