The Judges' Union will hold a press conference the next day, during which Judge Sagi Berman will announce that he has decided to change his gender and continue to judge as a woman under the name Sapir Berman.

For several months now, Berman has been undergoing a gender reassignment process when she wants to continue serving as a union judge.



The Football Association and the referees' association have supported Berman all along, as she is already undergoing hormonal treatments and is expected to undergo sex reassignment surgery in the future.

Recently Berman has been appearing in games with longer hair and feminine features.

"We sat down with her in the last few days and realized that she was ready to be published at a press conference. Sapir Berman is completely satisfied and calm with the move and we fully support her," a source in the judges' union said this morning.

Berman will serve as the fourth referee in the Premier League games and as the main referee in the National League.

The decision whether to be a major referee in the Premier League will be made later according to ability and scores.

This season, Sagi Berman refereed very little in the Premier League.



When she is 28, Sapir Berman will break through in favor of many who want to change their sexual identity and do not dare and will undoubtedly be inspired through her story.
