Six of the ten women’s Premier League teams in football have approached the chairman of the Football Association, Oren Hasson, to establish a professional director who will manage the women’s Premier League in football, similar to the way professional sports are managed in other industries.

The teams wrote: “In light of the acute and ongoing crisis in the industry, we, the women’s soccer teams in the Premier League want to establish a professional manager who will operate and manage the Premier League in the coming seasons” reads a letter sent on behalf of Premier League teams: Netanya girls, Raanana women’s soccer, SA Tel Aviv, Maccabi Talents of Hadera, Hapoel Beer Sheva, and Petah Tikva. “

In recent years, there has been a more widespread approach that the management of professional leagues in the sports industries will be carried out by dedicated managers, whose goal is to promote and leverage the industry while maximizing revenue for league teams, strengthening and making products better for fans. We train that in order to take the industry a few steps forward, deep plowing is required in addition to increasing budgets as well as investing additional time and resources in the development of the industry. ”

The Premier League teams noted that “a super-body has recently been established for women’s team sports. This body, led by the chairman of the Women’s Basketball Super League Hila Knister Bar-David, represented the women’s ball sports in front of various state bodies, municipalities, broadcasters and sponsors. This body will be composed and managed by the directors or women’s sports associations, and therefore it is of great importance to establish a directorate for women’s football, in order to integrate it as soon as possible with the United Superintendent. ”

According to the teams’ letter: “The women’s soccer director who will be established will work in full cooperation with the football association, which will continue to serve as the senior professional body, set the professional rules, appoint representatives to the principal’s board and determine the identity of the principal chair.”
