Amid the noise generated by Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi, Neymar and the maelstrom of news generated around Madrid and Barcelona, I exist in Colgados for football hollow to talk about women's football and the Spanish league in that category. Made of 16 teams, They are just a few who know of its existence and continue daily.
Born in 1988, This serves as a showcase competition for most players to make themselves known and promote, but mostly, fogueen is facing international calls to Spain, selection is ultimately achieving great performances in women's flat, as evidenced by the third place in the European Under-17 this past summer and made the quarterfinals at Euro finals in Sweden absolute.
The importance of the competition is increasing although there are still serious problems to solve. The first of them, the schedules. Already they played a few night games, but almost all of them are held on Sunday mornings, not counting on the presence of television cameras, with low impact that entails.
So, no significant income, because the lockers are all important. In fact, Most teams play in sports centers with limited seating. And salary, Better not talk, if you want to earn a living with the ball at his feet better emigrate to other countries, perhaps Sweden, perhaps United States, there are cases of Vero Boquete, Adriana Martin or Jennifer Hermoso

League takes place along 30 journeys, to Return, endowing the team champion position in the Women's Champions League, never won by a Spanish box. Levante and Athletic are the joint most successful in the league with four titles, although Barcelona has won the last two taking advantage of declining budgets of most teams. Is not surprising that Real Madrid or other historical as Betis.
Although even more it is surprising the different treatment given to this league compared to what happens in other countries like Germany. Every important match of the day there is televised by Eurosport which has been the rights for Europe, exceed hearings 55 million viewers worldwide, stadiums can reach gather regularly to 1.500 O 2000 people and its impact on the press is daily and not waste locations as in Spain.

Of course, the key is the culture of each country. There, the woman is respected, He is admired for sports and not even think about sex discrimination. The European Championship final won by Germany this past summer in Sweden was followed by 9,4 million viewers and 44% de share. Germany is the birthplace of the women's football clubs, but Sweden has 299.855 licensing (with a population not exceeding 10 millions of inhabitants) and the United States with a long million and a league, where despite problems, receives grants to pay the salaries of its members.
