Memories of 2016: W-League players stand up

For eight seasons the W-League players have balanced the life of semi professional players with little fanfare or complaint.

However in 2016, the players decided to take a stand and look for improved pay and conditions for current and future players.


Working with Professional Footballers Australia, the W-League have banded together to work towards:

>> Minimum pay

>> Minimum medical standards

>> Better training facilities

>> Better travel procedures

The move from the players comes at a time when other sporting competitions are increasing their investment or creating new women’s leagues.

With a more competitive landscape, making the W-League an attractive choice is not just key for the league but also for the continued success of the Matildas with so many players cutting their teeth in the W-League.
