WNPL Player Payments Models

Post by BAGGIO 15 »

How many clubs pay their players?

Some I assume pay their top tier players.
Do any pay their match day squad as well?

You've asked the question so I reckon you can enlighten us.

I only know one model a club uses.
They pay every player who makes the match day squad regardless of who they are.

That's why I'm asking.

Thanks for the reply.

I have heard of varying models

1) Some clubs have voiced disapproval of any payment to the senior women's. Same old chestnut. Have to be self sustaining. Meanwhile the club makes player payments through its women and juniors.

2) Some paid certain players. W-L-D scale. Not everyone.

3) There is certainly varying pay scales offered. Just look at the moves between City and Comets Salisbury Westies and vice versa. Birks in this as well.

In this regard I fully support any payments made because the players deserve it and after years of paying club fees teh game needs to have a value placed upon it.

So you support women's players getting paid but want to take away a revenue stream for clubs and host all games at a neutral venue?

No I do not however, I question how the allocation will occur. I think the formula to be sued will be interesting. How much will flow through to the WNPL team/s?
