“The frustration of the players is growing and they are not putting aside going to court”


The fight of Women’s Football for the effort to match your wages with theirs has not yet begun, but is currently in full swing. The pioneers were the American internationals and they were joined by soccer players from various leagues, including the Swedish one.

The conflict over the Swedish women’s league collective agreement is growing, and a week before the competition opens, the Players’ Association has announced that they may take the whole matter to court. “The frustration of the players is growing,” they said in a press release published yesterday, Friday.

Elite women’s football (EFD) and the clubs are represented by the Employers’ Alliance and the players are represented by the Players’ Association. But the Employers’ Alliance did not want to negotiate with the Players Association, but wanted to negotiate and sign an agreement with the Unionen union.

So the negotiations stalled.

The players’ union writes in a press release on Friday that the situation between the parties has been blocked and that they are ready to go to court. They believe that the Employers’ Alliance has refused to negotiate. “The frustration of the players is growing and they emphasize that they will not change their mind about the Players Association being their negotiating party. Players will also not accept downgraded rules. If necessary, the Players Association is ready to take the case to court.”said the press release.
