Bibiana Steinhaus will become the first female referee in Bundesliga history when she oversees Hertha Berlin's Matchday 3 clash with Werder Bremen at the Olympiastadion on Sunday afternoon (kick-off: 15:30CEST/13:30GMT).
Steinhaus, a 38-year-old policewoman from Hannover, was added to the DFB's panel of referees in May after successfully overseeing Bundesliga 2 games since the 2007/08 season, but Saturday's encounter between the Old Lady and the Green-Whites will be her first game in Germany's top-flight - and indeed the first match ever refereed by a woman in the Bundesliga.
"I wish her a good match," Hertha coach Pal Dardai was quoted as saying by German sports daily Bild on hearing the news. "She does a really good job."
To mark the occasion, Hertha have offered discounts to women at the Olympiastadion.
