The Professional Footballers Association (PFA) announced the launch of a dedicated Women’s Football Department this week.
According to the PFA statement, the women’s department will include a Professional Football Negotiating Consultative Committee (PFNCC).
“The Women’s Football Department will build on the work we already do to support women’s football,” it reads.

The department will help to build a future in which no changes can be made to the women’s game without player consultation. As a result, more players will feel safe in their position.
Furthermore, this is a positive and forward-thinking move by the PFA. It not only creates a secure and stable future for today’s footballers but future generations as well.Embed from Getty Images
Director of women’s football, Marie-Christine Bouchier said, “We want to keep helping to push the game forward and this department enhances the support system we already have in place for female players.”
