The honor won by Frappart in 2023 is not her first landmark in football history. She carved her own path by being the first woman to officiate a Ligue 1 match back in 2019. The same year marked the beginning of her winning streak at the IFFHS awards. This was followed by her taking charge of matches in the men's Champions League and World Cup, further cementing her status.
2023 IFFHS Rankings
The IFFHS rankings for 2023 revealed Frappart's impressive standing, leading with 116 points. She was followed by Tori Penso from the USA with 99 points and Cheryl Foster from the UK scoring 54 points.
Close to an Existing Record
Frappart's series of victories draws a striking parallel with Pierluigi Collina, the Italian referee renowned for his record of consecutive wins from 1998 to 2003. She is on the verge of equalling this impressive record.
Despite her unparalleled success on the international stage, Frappart has had to confront a certain degree of criticism and derogatory commentary from some Ligue 1 club supporters. Her resilience and continued success is a testament to her professionalism and dedication to the sport.
