Description

Women’s football is undergoing a period of dramatic growth and development, but the largest and most far-reaching report into working conditions in the game has found that female footballers still lack the same securities as men, with contracts, employment security and prize money among the problem areas.

A survey commissioned by FIFPro - the international professional football players’ union - was completed by over 3000 players from the top women’s leagues in 33 nations across the world. This covered issues ranging from age, education and salary, to contracts, payments and expenses.
