Women's Football News
The Football Association has decided to put back the start date of the proposed FA Women's Super League for a period of 12 months.
It had been announced earlier this season that an eight-team league was to be created as from March 2010 but they have now decided that this is no longer possible.
The plans have stirred up much debate and controversy but the following statement has been published on the FA website regarding the immediate future of the league.
The statement reads:
"The FA has taken the decision to defer the Women's Super League.
At the FA Board Meeting on Tuesday 31 March, it was reluctantly decided that the launch of the FA Women's Super League would be deferred from the summer of 2010 to summer 2011.
The decision was reached in line with discussions as part of an ongoing review of the FA's cost base and planned financial commitments across the organisation. This review is being undertaken as a prudent measure in the current global financial downturn to ensure that we are able to use our financial resources in the most appropriate and meaningful way.
The FA is aware that applications for the Super League are nearing submission stage and would request at this time that all clubs interested in joining the Women's Super League put their applications on hold until further notice."
