The president of the Higher Sports Council (CSD), Irene Lozano, said Thursday that “there are no real obstacles” to sign the Collective Agreement of Spanish women’s football, after having met with representatives of “all relevant actors.”
«In this sense, Lozano has had meetings with representatives of the RFEF, AFE, ACFF and LaLiga, and has verified that there are no real obstacles for the signing, as soon as possible, of an agreement that protects the players and grants them the rights of those who are holders of their work ”, the CSD underlined in a press release.
«Football and its protagonists need agreements, more urgent if possible in the case of women. For the CSD, it is a priority to move towards equality with a firm step and the recognition of our soccer players is key, regardless of other issues such as audiovisual rights (which are an exogenous element of collective bargaining), ”said Lozano.
The president of the CSD, finally, has urged all parties “to close the negotiation” and also “to sit at a table to sign an agreement.” In his opinion, as noted in the note, it would be an agreement “historic and pioneer in Spain” and also “can open the door to similar agreements in other sports.” .
