The matchday 1 of the newly professional Spanish women’s top flight, Liga F, has been rescheduled to be played on 2nd of November, on a Wednesday. All the games in matchday 1 were called off following a referee ‘strike’ demanding for better working conditions and wages following the professionalization of the league.
After multiple public statements and some meetings, the CTA (Spanish Technical Committee of Referees), LPFF (the league running body) and RFEF (Royal Spanish Football Federation) finally found a middle ground and referees had their basic pay increased. Everyone returned to action on matchday 2.
