(Reuters)Sapir Berman made sports history on Monday, officiating at a soccer match in Israel's Premier League for the first time since coming out as transgender.

At a news conference last Tuesday in which she publicly announced her transition, Berman, at 26 already a top referee in Israel's leading soccer league, said she had always seen herself as a female, even at a young age.

Berman is not the first transgender referee in the soccer world.

A British soccer referee, Lucy Clark, came out as transgender in 2018.
