Evolution and progress in women's football: Players will take maternity leave in England

Women's Premier League footballers maternity leave, as well as injuries and illnesses, will be covered in your contract of long duration, for the first time in history.

The Players Union of England (PFA) has reached an agreement with the English Federation so that these conditions, that until now were not taken into account, become a part of the players' contract.

“We are delighted to confirm that, following negotiations with the FA, we have reached an agreement to support changes relating to maternity, injuries and long-term illnesses in the players' contracts,” said Marie-Christine Bouchier, director of women's football at the PFA.

“The objective of the PFA has been to achieve contractual parity for women with respect to men. There is still a lot of work ahead, but these changes represent a milestone”, he added.
