The plan will have a “strong focus” on the first division of the Women’s League, and results from “a study in which all the clubs in the championship were heard”.
Among the conclusions is the lack of ideal training conditions and the lack of resources available to players and technical teams.
Thus, during this season and next, the FPF “will channel to clubs about €1.2 million”, an amount associated with the “commitment to development”, namely through investment in the qualification of coaches and the creation of more training teams.
“It is a concern of the FPF to promote a better balance between the clubs that participate in the League, thus increasing the competitiveness and development of the players”.
Currently, the newly promoted Benfica leads the championship with 11 wins out of 11 possible, with 74 goals scored and only one conceded, followed by Sporting, with a defeat and a goal difference of +48.
At the other end of the table, Cadima have not yet scored a single point, scoring just seven goals against 105 conceded.
The plan also includes the training of female leadership in football, which was launched under the ‘Portugal Football School’ and which will take place between February and July 2020.
This training is aimed at “managers and leaders with experience in confederations, national federations, leagues or clubs”, in addition to “all those who aspire to assume leadership and management functions” in the sport. TPN/Lusa
