Globalising Women’s Football

Europe, Migration and Professionalization

by Jean Williams (Author)
©2013 Monographs XII, 183 Pages

Summary

With an estimated 26 million female players globally (6 million based in Europe), the evolution of football has been dramatic. Growth in the women’s game has led to more widespread player migration as new forms of professionalism emerge. This work explores those patterns of movement into, and out of, Europe using new archival evidence and player interviews.
