2017 FIFPro Global Employment Report

December 2017

Football has been deeply rooted in our societies predominantly and historically as a male-defined space. A long history of gendered power imbalances in the game across geographies has meant that access to opportunities and resources for women in football from the global to local has been hampered and inhibited. It has meant that there have been long periods when the football establishment disapproved of the women's game and women participating in the sport regularly confronted forms of exclusion, discrimination and injustice. The 41 pages of findings, a summary of a longer report by the University of Manchester, are based on a survey of 3,500 women footballers playing at an elite level. The report covers pay, tournament prize money, education, healthcare, discrimination and match fixing.
