A-League referee Chris Beath has been appointed as a video match official for the upcoming FIFA Women's World Cup.
Beath will join fellow Australian referees Kate Jacewicz and Casey Reibelt, who were selected as part of the contingent of 90 match officials for France.
The 34-year-old was recently a VAR at the AFC Asian Cup in the UAE, where he was appointed the Assistant VAR for the Final between Japan and Qatar.
“This is a well-deserved appointment for Chris who has plenty of international match experience as both a referee and as a VAR,” said FFA Director of Referees, Ben Wilson.
“We wish Chris, Kate and Casey all the best for the upcoming FIFA Women’s World Cup in France and I am confident that they will perform at their best whatever matches they are appointed too."
There were 15 officials, including Beath, appointed as video match officials from 11 different countries.
Ten of the 15 selected were VAR/Referees at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Despite never being used in a senior women's football tournament, VAR will make it's debut in France next month.
“Following the historic implementation of VAR at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia last summer, we were determined to do our utmost to ensure that VAR was also implemented in the women’s game," Deputy Secretary General Football Zvonimir Boban said.
“In order to achieve this goal, for the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019™ we selected the most experienced VARs in the world. Once again, VAR will be part of a remarkable project as it will unite women and men referees in what we are certain will be a successful tournament.”
The FIFA Women's World Cup takes place between June 7 and July 7 in France.
