Spain's Liga F women's players to strike over pay
Barcelona are the leading women's side in Liga F and also lifted the Champions League in June
Players in the top tier of women's football in Spain will strike over pay and conditions.
The new Liga F season is due to start on Friday but instead players will walk out for the first two games.
The Spanish Players' Association [AFE] said the strike was called because a "fair" deal could not be reached.
Negotiations began a year ago, when Liga F turned professional, but the league said the players' demands would lead to "economic failure".
The minimum salary was set at 16,000 euros last season but players are requesting the minimum wage should be 25,000 euros for the 2023-24 campaign, rising to 30,000 euros for the following season.
AEF is the largest of several unions that are negotiating together on behalf of the players.
