Kenyan Female Referee Mary Njoroge To Officiate At 2023 Women’s World Cup

Kenyan Mary Njoroge is among 33 referees, 55 assistant referees, and 19 video match officials (VMOs) selected to officiate at the 2023 Women’s World Cup.

Australia and New Zealand will co-host the women’s World Cup from July 20 to August 20, 2023, and Njoroge expressed her elation on the achievement, “I am happy beyond words. This is a dream coming true. I thank God”.

Njoroge, according to FKF CEO Barry Otieno, was an example of the caliber of Kenyan authorities, “We are happy for Mary. She deserves it. Assignments like this show that we have quality officials in our country, and in our leagues and competitions.”

She was on the list when CAF made history by including female referees in men’s tournaments for the first time at the 2019 Under-17 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Tanzania.

Mary Njoroge and Gilbert Cheruiyot were chosen to serve as referees for the 2020 FIFA Men’s and Women’s Olympic Football Tournament in 2021.

In early 2021, she was chosen to preside over the CAF Confederation Cup group stage encounter between Zambia’s NAPSA players and Cameroon’s Coton Sport.
