One of the most important relationships that The Cyclists’ Alliance built during the summer of 2017 is with FIFPro, which is the global union representing over 60,000 professional footballers, from over 63 countries. This was an important step to help us understand how to best create an association by, and for, women professional cyclists.
FIFPro recently published a detailed report on the working conditions inside professional women’s football, as part of its efforts to build up the rights and economic opportunities for its athletes. The 2017 FIFPro Global Employment Report, researched and written in conjunction with the University of Manchester (GB), contains over 41 pages of findings which are summarized from a survey of 3,500 women footballers who play or have competed at the elite team level.
