  1. KK is one of the six senior players at the meeting today http://www.espnfc.com/fifa-world-cup/story/2512299/fifpro-opening-its-doors-to-female-members FIFPro, the world footballers' union, is to welcome female players as direct members in a bid to fight inequality in the sport. At present individual players, male or female, are not permitted to join FIFPro but the organisation is set to overturn 50 years of tradition. The initiative, announced at a press conference in Vancouver, aims to improve the rights of women in territories where they will not be accepted as members of the their o
  2. Hopefully FIFPRO will state they are finally going to get involved in the women's game - http://www.fifpro.org/en/component/content/article/42-content/importation/media/6025-media-alert-fifpro-in-vancouver-july-3 UPDATE (Vancouver, July 2, 2015): FIFPro has the pleasure of announcing Canadian veteran Karina LeBlanc as the latest confirmed participant for tomorrow's important media event in Vancouver outlining a new global outreach initiative for female footballers.

  4. Seems the USWNT along with the CANWNT have yet to get their contracts finalized with their NSO. US women’s national team still without CBA The Equalizer Jeff Kassouf March 4, 2013 http://equalizersoccer.com/2013/03/04/united-states-womens-national-soccer-team-collective-bargaining-agreement-cba-negotiations/ Preseason starts March 11 for National Women’s Soccer League teams, but the cornerstones of the league – US women’s national team players – are still without a collective bargaining agreement (CBA). The US Soccer Federation and the US Women’s National Soccer Team
  5. There were several questions about how the CSA was going to be papering the canwnt players in the NWSL that the boys at CSN where going to ask months ago. I'm wondering if the CSN has gotten any answers as yet or if they are hitting the usual black rubber wall? Biggest concern besides how the players are going to be funded is what sort of medical, health and injury insurance they are going to have. We know that Sports Canada doesn't cover carded athletes in non-sanctioned NT events. Sadly the Sarah Burke fatal accident reminded us of that http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/02/01/1
  6. ^ A CBA doesn't have to be about how much a player with an agent is going to earn but it can be about how the contract is structured with other standard agreements or conditions ie; medical care, ticket revenue sharing, tv revenue sharing, merchandise revenue sharing, pension & etc. The NHL is a good example of a pro league with a CBA yet all players and their agents negotiate with their team for their wages. Reading ThePFA site, it looks to me that they fulfill a similar role to the players of the Premier League, the Football League and the Football Association much in the same way the
  7. Commitment comparison would be really interesting especially when our players live in such a huge country that require a ton of travelling and res camps all over the place. I too believe there is a need for a 3rd party "group keep them honest would help ensure a good result." There are many women's NT's out there that have central contracts or better still a CBA. The USWNT have had CBA's for decades and they run for the 4 year Olympic cycle. Those CBA's have no influence on what non NT players make in leagues as the NT CBA is seperate from the league. Hence same should be for our pl
  8. England women footballers secure central contract increase to take them up to £20K or $32K. That compares to our women's $18K in AAP funding from Sports Canada. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/21010984 "Players are said to be satisfied with the deal, with their central contracts rising from £16,000 to £20,000 a year.The new package, set to be confirmed in the next few days, also increases the number of hours players can work in secondary jobs to 24 a week." What our players need to do is have www.thepfa.com represent them as the players should have a basic CBA for NT duti
  9. So true for the CANWNT program too "What they're saying is the demands are full-time and the wages are part-time and it's no way to run a program."
  10. ^ I would have thought the guys over at CSN would have been asking about the lack of arms length between the CSA board and staff with some of those same individuals running the 2015 FIFA WWC. The questions the media and soccer press should be asking are obvious aren't they?

  12. Aren't most of these people already working for the CSA in some way so how are they going to be able to take on the extra load. Also, is there not a question of arms length? http://www.canadasoccer.com/national-organising-committee-announced-for-fifa-women-s-world-cup-canada-2015-p152796 National Organising Committee announced for FIFA Women's World Cup Canada 2015 Posted on 6 December 2012 The Canadian Soccer Association is pleased to have announced the National Organising Committee for the FIFA Women's World Cup Canada 2015.
