Official Referee Dinner

On Wednesday we had the official referee dinner which began with a trip to the Mayoral Palace in Frankfurt, located in the historic center of the city. The Mayor graciously welcomed the referees to the city of Frankfurt and invited several dignitaries to the event. The dignitaries included individuals who have contributed significantly to the development of women's football in Germany, including representatives from FFC (the local women's football club) and from Eintracht Frankfurt (which is allowing us to use their football facilities where we do our daily training sessions).

Frankfurt'a historical area is very beautiful. Upon leaving the event, we stumbled across this mobile Beer Bike, which essentially is a mobile pub.

After the event with the Mayor, we attended the official referee dinner. The official referee dinner is always a very special night, as on this night we are awarded medals of participation at the Women's World Cup along with an Adidas watch. It feels incredibly awesome to hold the medal, as it is a symbol of the long road the led us to the WC and the culmination of dream come true.

Here is a close up of the medal. The front has the World Cup trophy in the center and the backside reads FIFA.

We are awaiting appointments to the matches. Please click on this link to view a TV schedule of the matches:
