Swiss women's football boss makes hate mail public

The Swiss women's football boss Tatjana Haenni has published a hate letter against women in football addressed to her. The top official of the Swiss Football Association (SFV) shared the letter on Twitter.

"By publishing this letter, I wanted to further raise public awareness and show that respect and tolerance are still too often trampled on," the 55-year-old wrote in a statement on Friday.

The SFV keeps receiving letters in which national players are humiliated and insulted. "These statements are disrespectful, vile and hurtful," wrote Haenni.

The former international, coach and Fifa official has long campaigned for women in football. Before the European Championships in England, the equality of bonuses for Swiss national players was announced.

Meanwhile, Federal Family Minister Lisa Paus has asked the German Football Association for so-called equal pay for the women's and men's national teams. "The DFB should pull itself together and pay men and women equally," Paus told the "Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung" (Friday). "In other countries, the national teams are already paid the same."

Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) had already called for equal pay for women and men in sport on Twitter. This Tuesday, Scholz will meet the head of the DFB in Frankfurt/Main, also to talk about this topic.

The DFB soccer players had each received 30,000 euros for their final participation in the European Championships in England, which had been negotiated beforehand. With a EM triumph it would have been 60,000 euros. In the men's national team, every professional would have collected 400,000 euros if they won the European Championship last year.

The argument of the different spectator income in men's and women's football "is no longer valid since this European Football Championship," said Paus (Greens). "If the DFB markets and presents women's teams in the same way as male teams, then the spectators will come too."
