The movement for a pro women’s soccer league in Canada

chelsea spencer hopes the young women she’s coaching one two one two will one day get the chance to play pro soccer here in canada i know the time and dedication it takes to be an athlete and to be compensated for all that hard work is super super important at st mary’s university in halifax players see canada’s performance at the olympics as a game changer showing that we have the quality players here in canada i think will hopefully provide funding and support for that league here after the big win team captain christine sinclair drove the point home hard if a gold medal and three olympic medals doesn’t do that nothing will so it’s i think it’s time for canada to step up it is a major source of embarrassment and it should be a major black eye for this country this sports journalist who’s covered the women’s team for 20 years says canada should follow the lead of the u.s europe and other countries with pro-women’s soccer leagues even though mounting it in a pandemic will be challenging potentially one of the obstacles to overcome here is that you have to sort of convince investors whether it’s from the private or public sector to sort of commit long term that they’re going to have to be in this for the long haul and not see an immediate return on their investment sophie schmidt sophie schmidt takes a reflection diana matheson retired from the playing field is now part of a different team one that’s exploring how to build a pro women’s soccer league in canada this gold medal i think is going to be the tipping point to tip this project over the edge so very beginning stages literally just planning bringing the right people in the room talking about it i think 2022 we’re bringing all the pieces together and i think we could kick off in 2023 after today an idea that had little success up to now in gaining traction might finally be moving a little farther up the field chris o’neil yates cbc news halifax
