We the undersigned want to see that the Football Association treat mens’ and womens’ football leagues equally. Sunderland Womens Football Club have been excluded from next season’s eight team Premier League, by The FA, reportedly* on commercial and marketing grounds. According to a report in The Guardian Chairman of the Sunderland WFC, Maurice Alderson, has been told of the decision, which he describes as a “kick in the teeth”.** The Club is presently leading the Womens Premier League*** includes 9 internationals amongst its players, and has the support of Sunderland AFC. It is inconceivable that The FA would contemplate a similar exclusion in the mens Premier League. To treat the womens game in this way is bad for all football. * by the Sunderland Echo ** Quoted by Salut Sunderland blog http://bit.ly/SunderlandWFCexclusion *** on 17/2/2010 http://bit.ly/SunderlandWFCLeague
