Globalising Women’s Football

Europe, Migration and Professionalization

Series:

Jean Williams

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.

The information from 1974 and 1985 has largely been incorporated into the main body of the report and so is not expressly summarised here. I have used it mainly to indicate where a national association was part of the nascent women’s football community before FIFA and UEFA recognition. Future research- ers will also be able to use the UEFA Club Licensing Survey conducted in 2008....
