MADRID (Information) – Spain’s soccer federation (RFEF) has pledged 1.15 million euros to assist pay the salaries of girls’s top-flight gamers in an effort to attempt to stop a deliberate strike, it stated on Wednesday.

The choice adopted a gathering between the gamers and RFEF president Luis Rubiales.

“The RFEF can pay part of the wage of gamers within the Primera Division Iberdrola in an effort to unblock the stand off that at present exists between golf equipment and athletes,” stated an RFEF assertion.

“The RFEF will assure a minimal wage of 16,000 euros per 12 months to 18 gamers of every squad and strike a common deal, after current tv contracts finish, that may enable it to lift that minimal wage to as much as 18,000 or 20,000 euros.”

The assertion added that in trade for its monetary contribution, golf equipment needed to finish the deadlock which has prevented girls’s top-flight matches being broadcast on nationwide tv this season.

Final month, 93% of gamers throughout the division’s 16 golf equipment voted to go on an indefinite strike from Nov. 16 over a disagreement about pay and situations.
