Women's football to turn pro

Women’s football is set to turn profressional with a planned Ladies’ Super League to be televised from spring 2011.

Players are not paid under the current system, which sees top performers at clubs such as Liverpool Ladies earn maximum win bonuses of a meagre £30 a match.

Kelly Simmons, head of National Game at the FA, warned that professionalism will not mean a sea-change in the women’s game.

"We don't think we'll see all players full time straight away," she told Sky. "Some will be part time.

"We've developed a three-year strategy for women's football... we've already put England players on central contracts so that we can basically buy them out of work so they can train more."

While it is described as professional, in practice the sport will be semi-pro with at least four members of each club reportedly set for annual salaries of over £20,000 apiece.

Liverpool is one of eight clubs chosen to make up the inaugural Super League, the others being Arsenal, Birmingham City, Bristol Academy, Chelsea, Doncaster Rovers Belles, Everton and Lincoln.

Liverpool boss Robbie Johnson believes that the innovation could signal an influx of females into the sport – and hence improve the quality of the top level of the game.

"If it raises the profile to younger girls and women and they want to come into the game, that will hopefully increase the players available to be selected and increase the standards," he said.

The season will begin in March of next year, with matches televised on ESPN.

The FA, which will run the competition, hopes that top players will no longer be lured abroad to lucrative leagues such as that in the United States. Eurosport -Yahoo Sport
