The National Football League made huge strides in equaling the playing field when Sarah Thomas became the first woman to officiate a Super Bowl match on Sunday, 7 February 2021.

Millions of viewers tuned in to watch the historic feat as Tampa Bay Buccaneers were crowned NFL champions, defeating Kansas City Chiefs.

On the day, Thomas was joined by two other women on the field with Lori Locust, a defensive line assistant, and Maral Javadifar, an assistant strength and conditioning coach, both on the staff of Buccaneers’ Coach Bruce Arians.

In 2015, Thomas became the first woman to referee full-time in the NFL and first officiated a playoff game in 2019.
