– Speaking to Football Zebras, XFL Head of Officiating Dean Blandino announced that every officiating crew will have one woman as part of a “concerted effort” to have a more diverse officiating staff in the XFL.

Blandino stated on the subject, “We’re trying to create more opportunities for female officials and minority officials. The XFL is going to be a showcase for officials all over the country to get more looks and potentially have the NFL look at them. So, we’re going to put together an inclusive [officiating] staff.”

The women working alongside the XFL crews are line judge Maia Chaka and side judge LaShell Nelson from Conference USA, line judge Robin DeLorenzo and center judge Amanda Sauer-Cook from the Big Ten officiating consortium, and field judge Sebrina Brunson and head line judge Tangela Mitchell from the Southwestern Athletic Conference.
