New Spanish women's football season to begin after deal ends referees' strike

A deal was struck on Wednesday to improve the wages and working conditions for match officials, the Spanish football federation (RFEF) announced.

The “historic” agreement will allow women's referees to gain professional status, it said in a statement.

"The National Sports Council (CSD) will contribute an extra €350,000 per year for the first three seasons, which will go towards an end-of-career fund that referees will be able to draw on once their professional careers are over."
