People call it boring.

Please actually watch before giving your opinion. If you think it's boring and you've already watched it, it's fine- that's you're opinion.

Of course, like every sport it can be boring, it can also be enjoyable to watch

It's also soccer, different genders, same thing.

If you like soccer, give it a try

    $6,842

    The club minimum pay for professionals is only $6,842, not $2,751 THANK GOD, but still, this is under the poverty line. There is money in women's soccer but not as much. Even the USWNT that makes 4 times the amount of money as the men's team still earns less. Yes, there is less competition in women's soccer then there is in men's soccer, but the minimum should be much higher. This is due to some discrimination from fans along with soccer associations paying women's leagues much less.

  4. Which of these player is the greatest in the history of women's soccer?

    Italy was the first ever country to have a women's professional soccer league, but only part-time

Women's soccer has been played ever since the beginning

Women back then didn't have the opportunity to play soccer as a professional, to be famous, but they can do that today, and hopefully more in the future. So please, give women's soccer a chance and know the truth.
