« UEFA’s financial allocations are none of my business “, said Corinne Deacon on Monday, while praising the “ means provided by the Federation. ” What I can tell you is that the Federation gives us all the means we need to prepare ourselves well. “said the coach.
No profits in sight for the FFF
UEFA has planned to pay € 2.08 million to the winning team of the Women’s Euro (July 6-31), according to our information. A sum much lower than the €28.5 million received last summer by Italy after its coronation at the Men’s Euro. The French Football Federation donates 30% of UEFA’s overall allocation to female players and technical staff, the same mechanism as that used for boys.
On Saturday, the vice-president of the FFF Philippe Diallo indicated that the sums incurred for the French women’s team at the Euro would not even be covered in the event of a title. ” In this competition, even if you win sportingly, you do not win economically. “, he summarized.
The France team will start the Euro on July 10 against Italy, before facing Belgium (July 14) then Iceland (July 18).
