Alex Morgan, a two-time FIFA Women’s World Cup winner and one of the players who signed the letter, said: “We hope that as women’s football grows and increases in reach, visibility and our base of support, fans, We can see the results: better working conditions, higher wages and more income generated, which means that, as footballers, we can see a huge profit.”
“We did a lot on our own to get the game here and it’s very important that FIFA and all the other bodies back us and support us. We’re going in that direction. There’s not a lot of excuses at this point, That’s why you see all the signatures they say”.
Speaking to FIFPRO in February about the significance of the move, Barcelona and England defender Lucy Bronze said: “The timing is very important as we get closer to the World Cup. It’s amazing to see them coming together.” Priority.”
“I am part of this initiative because I believe that women footballers deserve the same conditions as male footballers and we are working hard to prove it. There are still some things missing or we can do much better But I think the fact that we have that collective goal means that together we feel that there is a common goal. We know that there is strength in unity, we inspire each other. And the sound gets stronger.”
FIFPRO President David Aganzo concluded: “FIFPRO is very pleased with the steps FIFA has taken in establishing this guaranteed payment mechanism for players. The key to the success of this model is that it is universally applicable and fair, that Women soccer players tell us. They want that above all else. We believe this is the start of a transformative journey for the landscape of women’s professional soccer.”
