Foster Appointed to FIFA Women’s U20 World Cup Final

JD Cymru Premier and Genero Adran Premier referee Cheryl Foster, has been appointed as the Fourth Official to the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup Final in Costa Rica. 

The Final between Spain and Japan takes place on Monday (29 June 2022) at the Estadio Nacional de Costa Rica, with the game being shown live on FIFA+ at 3:00am BST. 

This will be Foster’s fifth appointment at the tournament and her third time as a Fourth Official, after refereeing a group stage match and the Quarter-Final between Brazil and Colombia. 

Foster has enjoyed match appointments at two tournaments this summer with her appearance in Costa Rica coming after a successful UEFA Women’s EURO 2022, which saw the former Cymru international referee the semi-final between Germany and France.
