'Incomprehensible attitude' - Anger as start of Spanish women's top flight season in Spain delayed with Liga F...
- Liga F players set to strike
- Higher wages the main focus
- League unwilling to meet demands
WHAT HAPPENED? Players across Liga F, the top tier of women's football in Spain, will go on strike for the first two weeks of the new campaign, after failing to agree on a new minimum wage with the league itself. Liga F were in talks with several players' unions in recent weeks but it was announced on Wednesday that an agreement could not be reached.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Players are looking to secure a minimum wage of 25,000 (21,400) for the new season, which would eventually rise to 30,000 (25,700) in 2024-25. The previous figure sat at 16,000 (13,700) in the last campaign, as players looks to secure better working conditions in the ever-growing women's game.
