Schwan's USA CUP is excited to have two officials, one returning and one new, who are currently in Canada refereeing the FIFA Women's World Cup.

Returning referee Fang Yan from Shanghai, China, and newcomer Qin Liang of Beijing will be heading directly to Blaine after the Women's World Cup concludes July 5.

Qin Liang was the head official for Group F’s Colombia vs. France match in Moncton, Canada on June 13. Colombia, the 28th ranked team in the world, upset the third ranked French team 2-0.

Fang Yan also served as an assistant referee in this exciting match. The two officials will serve on another game together on June 17, where France will face Mexico in Ottawa, Canada. Fang Yan will again serve as an assistant referee, and Qin Liang will serve as the fourth official.

We are looking forward to having these two top officials at the National Sports Center and Schwan's USA CUP!
