FIFA Women's World Cup 2011 – Third Place Match: Seitz (USA)

FIFA appointed Kari Seitz (40) for the bronze medal match Sweden - France. An advertising executive in San Matteo (USA), she started refereeing in 1990 and received her FIFA Badge in 1999. In the same year, Seitz was selected for her first FIFA Women's World Cup. Since then, she never missed another Women's World Cup, being present in USA (2003), China (2007) and Germany (2011), becoming the only referee in the world (male or female) who participated in 4 World Cups. If she will keep refereeing after this third place match in Germany, she would be age-eligible for a fifth World Cup! Seitz also refereed twice at the Olympic Games (2004 and 2008), as well as the Women's Euro 2005 in England.
