FIFPro released a report in April to affect the implications the coronavirus pandemic would have for women’s football. the 2 words ‘existential threat’ were those that jumped off the page quickly.
Since football was postponed in mid-March in England, there have been several concerns and issues surrounding women’s game, reports Goal.com.
While there are many questions and concerns surrounding the game during the coronavirus pandemic when its suspension ends there will be even more
AFC Fylde recently announced the dismantling of their women’s team, who are playing under the club’s name within the third tier since 2016.
The announcement comes just one month after the club released a press release saying: “Please be in little question that AFC Fylde is totally committed to its women’s squad and can make sure that it remains a neighborhood of the community.”
Reading recently became the primary team to furlough a gaggle of girls into Women’s Super League elite. Also, the amount of semi-professional teams within the game has gone down an equivalent road – with some even exceeding the salaries.
Additional assistance is often received from business grants and, with additional match-day expenses like lodging, minibusses, petrol, catering, and more on standby, it leaves some clubs in much stronger positions than one would originally expect – particularly with many women’s clubs working very carefully because it is.
“When football returns the matter should be an equivalent. While the men’s Premier League’s return would be the start of a television bonanza, the Women’s Super League and Championship won’t. Players are going to be back on their full-time wages, however, furloughing will stop and restore those match-day costs. it is a fork within the road when football gets to restart,” Charlie Dobres tells Goal.
