(SOUNDBITE) (English) CHELSEA MANAGER FRANK LAMPARD, SPEAKING ABOUT THE FEMALE REFEREEING TEAM FOR THE SUPER CUP FINAL, SAYING: "In terms of how much respect the (women's) game is getting, how many people are watching it, the interest in the game, I think we were very slow everywhere on this and now we are trying to make strides and there's a long way to go but in terms of tomorrow I think it's a huge moment and it should be very well addressed and we're all very pleased and I'm pleased that it's a historical moment that is one more step in the right direction I'd say." STORY: Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has welcomed the all-female refereeing team which will officiate at the Super Cup match against

Class="kln">Liverpool on Wednesday (August 13).

Referee Stephanie Frappart will become the first woman to referee a major UEFA competition final and will be assisted by her French compatriot Manuela Nicolosi and Ireland's Michelle O'Neill.

The trio have worked together at bigger matches - they were in charge of this year's Women's World Cup final in France - but there is no doubt they will be under intense focus in Istanbul Lampard told a news conference he was pleased to be part of a moment in history.

"I think the game has come on a long way in many ways, in terms of the women's World Cup which we all watched this summer, in terms of how much respect the game's getting, how many people are watching it and the interest in the game," he said.

"I think we were very slow everywhere on this and now we are trying to make strides and there's still a long way to go but in terms of tomorrow I think it's a huge moment.

"Its a historical moment that is one more step in the right direction." The Super Cup is an annual match played between the winners of the Champions League and the Europa League.

Liverpool beat Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final last season while Chelsea defeated Arsenal in the Europa League final.
