Emanuela Rusta, the first Albanian female referee in Football History



Albania, for the first time in the history of football, has a female referee with the FIFA emblem. Emanuela Rusta is a referee coming from Elbasan College.

Rusta has refereed the Super League matches and is the first to lead the inaugural match at the "Air Albania Stadium" between the girls of the teams of Vllaznia and Apollonia.

In January 2019, Rusta has been selected as the FIFA referee, appearing to have won one of the four vacancies thanks to tests held in Lisbon, attended by 38 female referees.

Emanuela Rusta, invited to the show "Good Morining Albanians" in Euronews Albania, said that she chose this profession by chance, but also to try herself by trying something different.

Among other things, the Albanian referee has shown that there were people along this road who prejudiced her.

"There have been prejudices, but for me, they have been part of the support," Emanuela said.

Asked of what she thinks about women's football in Albania, the referee said it is developing more and more.

Rusta has closed her speech saying that her desire for the future would be to arbitrate the World Cup final.
