Semi-Professional Target For Scottish Women’s Football

Written by on January 10, 2018

The chair of Scottish Women’s Football says it is her “dream” to see top clubs turn professional or at least semi-professional in the next three years.

And Vivienne MacLaren believes there are organisations willing to help fund her ambitions.

There are currently no female professional players in Scotland, with most internationals playing elsewhere.

“Scotland has come on leaps and bounds in terms of the attitude towards women’s football,” said MacLaren.

“My personal goal is that in three years the SWPL is at least semi-professional, if not professional, and that we are allowing players if they want to have full-time jobs playing football in Scotland to play in Scotland.

“That is our dream and I don’t think it’s out of the question.”

MacLaren has been studying women’s leagues across the globe, seeking a model for progress.
