First pro contract
« on: September 19, 2018, 05:22:27 PM »
Women’s wages seem to be abit of a secret

What could an rtc graduate at 16 hope to earn with her first pro contract full time or part time?

Anybody know

^[ 1  ] If you discover what it is  perhaps you can let the board  know.

[ 2 ] That said, I saw an article claim that the average annual salary for a player in the FA WSL in 2017/18  was  £ 26 752.  There's a table in the middle of the link comparing annual player salaries in a variety of women sports leagues.

95% plus are probably earning nothing.

Had it on goo authority that until they're 18 they are not allowed to be paid. Heard that some of the better players may be getting help with driving lessons instead !

It's definitely true that contracts are not given until a player turns 18 (although I did hear that it was allowed, but never offered, to 17-year olds). Clubs can pay expenses to under-18 year olds and they are eligible for sponsorship. Some clubs are more generous than others with their expenses payments.

In a typical Championship side I have heard that the best players might get up to £400 per month.  They may also be paid for fulfilling other Club roles like Community Officer.  Clubs like Man U may of course pay more.
