I guess that goes for a lot of other sports too.
I can get why football isn't mix-gendered, that is fine with me. But i really can't see why there can't female referees in men's football. Does anyone know if FIFA has restrictions on this? Are women not allowed to apply to becomes referees in men's games? Or is it just that there aren't any?

There is literally a woman refereeing in the Super Cup tonight.

Historically it was sexism but now it’s just a lack of experience. As more women see it as a viable career, women of the appropriate ability and experience will come along and get to the positions they deserve.

I think it’s because there aren’t many decent ones. Did you watch the women’s World Cup? Some of the refereeing was abysmal to say the least.
There are female linesmen in male football though.

I wouldnt be able to judge the refereeing quality tbh I thought women were not allowed to apply to become referees for men's football. I am not saying they should select unqualified candidates based on gender.

That sounds reasonable. So they are allowed to apply right?
