A gender inequality row has erupted in football after the FA doubled down on its decision to close girls" academies during lockdown while boys" academies have been allowed to remain open


The move has sparked anger and concern in the women"s game, particularly as it closely follows the decision to halt the women"s FA Cup until after lockdown is over, while the equivalent men"s competition has been given the green light to continue, despite also involving non-elite teams


"I don"t know who makes these decisions but they clearly don"t realise how far the women"s game has come," Helen Ward, a footballer for Watford FC Women, told Sky News

沃特福德女子足球俱乐部的足球运动员海伦·沃德(Helen Ward)告诉《天空新闻》:“我不知道是谁做出这些决定,但他们显然没有意识到女子比赛已经走了多远。”

"I can"t get my head around it, it sends a really bad message and instils the belief in the next generation that boys" football is more important than girls"." The FA said in a statement after the controversy erupted that all academies belonging to Womens" Super League clubs would have to remain closed until at least the end of the national lockdown on 2 December, because it deemed their resources "do not meet the necessary "elite" protocols"


But boys" academies, some of them based within the same facilities, will be allowed to remain open


"I think it is hard to say it"s anything other than gender inequality," said Ward


"It shows a total lack of regard for the women"s game and we risk losing young girls to the sport forever because four weeks is a long time off." It is understood that the government would have allowed girls academies to remain open, as per their guidance which stipulates that an elite athlete is any person "aged 16 or above on an elite development pathway"


Alex Culvin, a former professional footballer and now a lecturer in sport business at the University of Salford, told Sky News the decision was "ridiculous and separatist and indicative of the FA"s interpretation of women"s football"

白金会棋牌·库尔文(Alex Culvin)是前职业足球运动员,现在是索尔福德大学(Salford University)体育业务讲师,他对天空新闻(Sky News)表示,这项决定“荒谬而分裂,表明英足联对女足的解释”

Leading football pundit and former player Alex Scott also said she would work to get answers about the FA"s decision

领先的足球专家和前球员白金会棋牌·斯科特(Alex Scott)也表示,她将努力获得有关英足总决定的答案

"We must do everything to stop inequality like this," she wrote on social media


Sky News has contacted the FA for further comment
