“It’s vital that football authorities do not overlook the conditions that players in these and other evolving competitions have in their daily lives”— de Amanda Vandervort, FIFPRO Chief Women's Football Officer
“Professional women football players need sustainable competition structures which allow them to develop and meet their full potential,” Amanda Vandervort, FIFPRO’s Chief Women’s Football Officer, said. “These new competition developments are encouraging, and we hope they are just the start of progress on this front.
“However, it's vital that football authorities do not overlook the working environment and employment conditions players in these and other evolving competitions experience in their daily lives. All footballers need appropriate training and domestic championships to perform at their peak in elite competitions.
“For players to flourish – and the industry to reach its potential - we must ensure they benefit from an appropriate working environment with a set of employment conditions respected by everyone within the game. We look forward to collaborating with other football stakeholders to make this a reality so that players are at the heart of the development of women's football.”
