The referees in the highest division of women’s football in Spain are the only ones not considered professionals in the entire professional football competion in Spain.
The news has spread fast with a strong message saying that it’s about time that the referees become professional in the sense of being able to work full time. With all the travelling included it has caused a lot of problems as many referees have been forced to work on the side. Being able to complemente each other just isn’t working anymore.
The risk is that, unless something happens really soon, the referees will go out in strike meaning that the Spanish First Division will not be able to start on time.
