The Premier League will donate £ 1 million to the Women’s Super League, according to the BBC. With the help of the grant, the league will be able to test its players until next season begins this fall.
Both the Premier League and Premier League came to a halt in March when the Coronavirus swept through Europe. In the spring, the Leagues went in the opposite direction: the Premier League chose to play the season ready while the Premier League ended.
The Premier League hopes that next season will start in September, but for that to be possible, coronavirus tests are a major problem. This spring, there was a shortage of money for the tests and so it was not possible to finish the season.
For the league to start this fall, the Premier League will provide financial support, BBC reports.
We’re offering £ 1 million so they can start their testing program and they can start next season, says Richard Masters, Premier League chief executive.
The English Football Association hosts the Premier League, but according to the Masters, there have been discussions about the possibility of the Premier League taking over the Premier League. He thinks the time is still not appropriate.
We will raise the issue again in the near future. We want women’s football to be successful and that’s why we had discussions with the FA.
In the future, we don’t want to be responsible for the men’s league only, as well as the women’s league. The tournaments would do very well together and would inspire a generation of young girls to start playing soccer, he says.
