Liga F campaign set to commence

Athletic Club Femenino begin their Liga F season with a trip to Atlético de Madrid this weekend. Kick off is scheduled for 11:00 on Saturday 16th September 2023.

They had been scheduled to start their campaign at home to Granada the previous weekend, but the start of the Liga F season was delayed by one week due to a players’ strike over wages.

The players’ unions have now come to an agreement with the league that the minimum wage will rise from €16,000 to €21,000 for this season and then increase further still to €23,500 for the 2025-26 season.

Athletic Club finished in tenth place last season, with 35 points, whereas their hosts for this opening game, Atlético de Madrid, came fourth with 57 points, so it’s likely to be a stiff test for the Basques.
