The U.K. men’s and women’s national soccer teams announced Monday that they have added a gender-neutral refereeing system that will be used in all matches from this summer.
The new system will allow teams to replace men and women with men and men and female.
“We are delighted to welcome the U. S. Soccer Federation to our national team program,” U. K. men and U. U. women captain Abby Wambach said in a statement.
“The goal of the new system is to give the women the chance to play as a team, rather than having to play on the sidelines and with a ‘man’s’ or ‘woman’s’ referee.”
The women’s team also announced the team would be using a gender neutral refereeing method in the 2017 World Cup in Brazil.
U-20 MNT coach Bruce Arena said the team is taking a “fresh look at the way we officiate soccer, and we are looking to create a system that is fair and equitable to all players.”
He also said that “there are some issues around gender” with U.s.
Soccer’s current officiating system.
The announcement comes just weeks after the U-19 and U-21 national teams added a new system that would be used at all levels of the sport.
Under the new systems, a team’s official scorer will be the same gender, with the referee gender neutral.
The U-23s will also use the same system, but the U23s gender neutral scorer will not be the one that determines who scores the goal.
The changes are part of a broader effort to bring more parity to the men’s national team, as well as to address concerns about gender-based bias at the highest levels of soccer.
U S. men head coach Jurgen Klinsmann said in March that he would like to see gender-segregated matches for men and for women, but that “the issue of gender is not as important” as the issue of player safety.
The new system, which will take effect immediately, will be introduced in all future matches played in U. s. soccer by June, 2018.
The system was originally announced by Klinsman in August 2016 and is being implemented in phases to ensure players can be fully acclimated to the new officiating methods.
The changes also go into effect on June 1, 2018, for U. k-s-WNT matches.
