Abolition of the Salary Cap in the Women’s Soccer WK League

Professional Footballers’ Association Calls for the Abolition of the Salary Cap in the Women’s Soccer WK League

The Korea Professional Footballers’ Association (hereinafter referred to as the Players’ Association)

publicly called for the abolition of the ‘salary cap system’ in the women’s professional soccer league,

WK, which limited the maximum annual salary to 50 million won.

The players’ association issued a press release on the 28th and said,

“We agreed to work to abolish the annual salary cap and improve the treatment of female athletes.”

WK League

According to the Players’ Association, Secretary General Kim Hoon-ki recently held a seminar with WK League Incheon Hyundai Steel players, saying,

“The club and the players should decide their salaries autonomously. 카지노사이트탑

We are not asking for a higher salary.

It is important to create a free negotiation environment.”

He said, “The maximum annual salary was set at 50 million won in 2009.

“Considering the rise in prices, this is a system that must now be abolished,” he said.

“I am expressing my wish that many players would carefully negotiate their salaries autonomously instead of using a cap system.”

Ji So-yeon (Seattle Reign), president of the players’ association, also said in December last year.

At the Korea Women’s Football Federation awards ceremony,

they suggested improving the salary system and professionalization, saying,

“Right now, how many people will let their children play women’s soccer,

where the highest annual salary is 50 million won?”

The federation, which runs the WK League, is taking the current treatment seriously.

I don’t think it’s at a poor level.

Considering the down payment that can be up to 30% of the existing 50 million won due to frequent single-year contracts,

65 million won is the practical upper limit, and with incentives such as victory allowances added,

an annual salary in the hundreds of millions is possible.

However, I think the federation needs to improve the current situation where the annual salary cap has been fixed for over 10 years.

Cap System

However, due to the nature of the current unemployment team system,

which has no spectators or broadcasting revenue and has no choice but to rely on the budget of the operating company for finances,

the club side is having difficulty paying salaries.

The federation has been proposing to WK League teams to raise the annual salary cap since last year.

However, it was reported that the improvement of the system was canceled due to some clubs opposing it due to financial pressure.
