Mie Prefecture-based Suzuka Unlimited unveiled Milagros Martinez Dominguez as the club's new manager on Wednesday, becoming the first men's team in a Japanese national league to hire a woman for the position.

The 33-year-old Spaniard holds a UEFA Pro License, the top certification required to manage clubs participating in Europe's continental competitions. She previously managed Fundacion Albacete in the Spanish women's first division and has most recently been in charge of the women's team at Atletico Tomelloso.

"I would like to thank Suzuka Unlimited for providing me the opportunity to manage the club next season, as well as the chance to manage a men's team," Dominguez said through a club release.
