  • Sarah Thomas to become first woman to officiate Super Bowl

Among Cheffers' crew is down judge Sarah Thomas, who will become the first woman to ever officiate in a Super Bowl.

In a statement, NFL executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent said: "Sarah Thomas has made history again as the first female Super Bowl official". Carl Cheffers will lead the crew as the referee. Thomas, a down judge, is part of the officiating crew announced Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2021, by the NFL.

The NFL makes Super Bowl assignments after grading officials on their regular season performance. "Congratulations to Sarah on this well-deserved honor". Tampa Bay will play at Green Bay while defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City will host Buffalo. While this is her first time working a Super Bowl, Thomas has been a mainstay in the NFL since breaking into the league in 2015.

Referee Carl Cheffers will lead the seven-person crew of on-field game officials for the Super Bowl on February 7 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. "They are the best of the best". Shannon Eastin worked three games as a line judge early in the 2012 season when the NFL used replacement officials during a labor dispute with the NFL Referees Association.

Cheffers, in his 21st season as an National Football League official, will be refereeing his second Super Bowl; he was in charge during Super Bowl LI in 2017.
