FIFA Appoints Fourth Moroccan Referee to Officiate Women World Cup 2023

Four referees from Morocco have been chosen to officiate the 2023 Women’s World Cup games in Australia and New Zealand, which are scheduled to take place from July 20–August 23.

Bouchra Karboubi has been chosen by FIFA to serve as a major referee, joining Adil Zourak, the VAR referee, Fatiha Jermoumi, and Soukaina Hamdi as the other four officials.

The Atlas Lionesses, who qualified after placing second at the Africa Cup of Nations, which was played in the summer of 2022 in Morocco, will compete in this international, most prestigious competition for women’s soccer for the first time.

The national women’s team is now undergoing training at the Mohammed VI complex in Maamoura in order to get ready for their World Cup Group H matches against Germany, Colombia, and South Korea.

Bouchra is a skilled official who has presided over numerous games on the national and international levels. Notably, she is the first female to captain a team in the Botola, Morocco’s elite men’s football competition.

The Atlas Lionesses qualified by defeating Botswana in the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) quarterfinals.
