Scotland Women drop legal claim against SFA over equal pay and treatment

Scotland Women have withdrawn their legal claim against the Scottish FA over concerns regarding pay and treatment compared to the men's team.

The women's side launched their claim in December 2022, with Rachel Corsie, the captain, the lead claimant.

The women's team were demanding contracts stipulating equal pay - something the SFA said was already the case - as well as equal treatment on issues such as training facilities, hotels, travel, kits and medical and nutritional resources.

However, the SFA announced on Thursday that the legal claim has been withdrawn without the need for tribunal proceedings, with Corsie saying: "I am glad that we have been able to find a resolution.

"The legal route is one that nobody wanted to undertake but positive discussions have taken place during the intervening period with mutual respect, understanding and cooperation.
