petition codaconsCODACONS - Coordination of associations for the defense of the environment and the rights of users and consumers - supports the petition "TV rights to women's football" and will spread it on all their media channels. Already since this morning, on their facebook page: The first post was published: "We ask that 1% of the total sum of TV rights be given to women's football, and it seems to us the minimum, right?"

The Council of Presidency has decided to embrace and accompany the battle proposed by to give women's football at least 1% of the revenues of professional football TV rights.

Just yesterday at the presentation of the women's soccer championships in Rome, the president Andrea Abodi he has declared: "the 40% of the public is female" is "we are interested in women, we need few words and many facts".

More pungent the former Golden Boy of Italian football and head of the Federcalcio Technical Sector Gianni Rivera: "Fortunately, women's football does not depend on politics and this is a great success" and .. "when in the 2008 I was a parliamentarian in the European Commission, a survey shows that Italy was in last place for the development of sport in schools and since then nothing has changed "and still ...

"it must be the Federations and the CONI to move, we do not think that it does the Parliament and the vice president of the Senate On. Fedeli knows that the situation is this.I hope things change a little but we have little confidence." will continue its battle so that 1% of the TV rights are assigned to allow the female movement to develop definitively as it was done in all the other member countries of Europe. Codacons is the ideal partner to promote and raise awareness among citizens and governors, who at the moment did not respond to the 13.000 signatures, that the time has come to recognize the total equality of women in sport.

Call President Andrea Abodi and the legendary Gianni Rivera to consider our request and contribute with all of us to give respect and dignity to the women's football movement.

We thank the council of president of the CODACONS and all their collaborators for their availability and courtesy towards our petition but above all towards the whole movement of women's football.

It takes the facts, everything else is just blah blah blah ...
