Resumption of Talks on Performance-Related Bonuses
Negotiations regarding performance-related bonuses for the Lionesses, England’s women’s national football team, were put on hold before the World Cup in Australia earlier this year. However, discussions are set to resume next week.
Currently, England players are in camp for their upcoming Nations League matches against Scotland and the Netherlands, creating an opportune moment to engage in talks with the Football Association (FA).
Before the World Cup, the Lionesses expressed disappointment over not reaching an agreement on performance-related bonuses. Nevertheless, Sarina Wiegman, the team’s head coach, is optimistic that a resolution will be achieved. She believes that the positive environment and constructive dialogue between the FA and players will facilitate reaching a satisfactory outcome. While no agreement was reached before the tournament, both parties agreed to disagree and decided to revisit the negotiations post-World Cup. Wiegman’s confidence in finding a solution reflects the cooperative spirit between the FA and the players.
