Six of the 10 women’s Premier League teams in football have approached the association’s chairman, Oren Hasson, with a request to establish a professional director who will manage the women’s Premier League, similar to the way professional sports are managed in other industries.
“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 Netanya, Raanana women’s soccer, SA Tel Aviv, Maccabi Hadera, Hapoel Beer Sheva, and Petah Tikva.
It was also written that “in recent years the approach has been more widespread 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. ”
Premier League teams noted that “a super-body has recently been set up for women’s team sports. This body, led by the chairman of the director of the Women’s Basketball Super League, Hila Knister Bar David, represented the women’s ball branches in front of the various state bodies, municipalities, broadcasters and sponsors, and more. This body will be composed and managed by the administrations or women’s sports associations, and therefore it is of great importance to establish an administration for women’s football, in order to integrate it soon into the United Super Administration. ”
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.”
