Biography[edit]

Monzul is 167 cm (5 ft 5 12 in) tall, speaks fluent English, and has a degree in architecture and town planning from Kharkiv National Academy of Municipal Economy.[1] She took charge of her first international match in September 2005, Finland versus Poland in the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup qualififiers.[2] She first refereed in a final tournament at UEFA Women's Euro 2009, while at the 2011 World Cup she served as a fourth official.

The 2013 UEFA Women's Euro's Norway versus Denmark semifinal marked her first performance in a major nations tournament's final stages. The following year she refereed the 2014 UEFA Women's Champions League Final. In 2014, she was voted second in the International Federation of Football History & Statistics (IFFHS) World's Best Woman Referee poll behind Bibiana Steinhaus.[3]

Monzul refereed the opening match of the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup, marking her debut in the competition as main referee, in which she awarded a controversial injury time penalty kick to host nation Canada who scored to beat China 1–0.[4] She also refereed the final on 5 July 2015 between the United States and Japan. In 2015, she was named as the IFFHS World’s Best Woman Referee.[5]

On 3 April 2016, Monzul started working in the Ukrainian Premier League, in a match between Chornomorets Odesa and Volyn Lutsk. In doing so, she became the first female referee in the elite men's Ukrainian football division.[6]

In June 2017, Monzul was appointed to be an official at the UEFA Women's Euro 2017 in the Netherlands.[7]

On December 3, 2018, it was announced that Monzul had been appointed to be a referee for the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup in France.[8] After the conclusion of the round of 16, FIFA announced that Monzul was selected as one of 11 referees who would be assigned to matches during the final 8 matches of the tournament.[9]
