Am I dreaming this or did we have a motor racing car in formula 3 and a basketball team?

Yes we did, basketball team in late 80s and the racing team in the 90s - not sure it was F3 though, seemed like a bit of gimmick as there were other football clubs around Europe that had a branded car

How long before sexual remarks made my male fans online or heard at matches are in the papers with us getting "blasted" for it. 🤮 

Hopefully nice feminine athletes we have and not insufferable cunts like that megan rapinhoe or whatever shes called. Pink hair, noserings, hates men and the "patriarchy" lol

At lower levels there's good money being invested into womens football. Thats why womens teams are popping up everywhere, even my local 2 boys clubs here that go up to 18s/juniors now have womens teams too.

Not sure how much Rangers would be getting from it but, in addition to the profile and equalities benefits it could bring, I'm sure we wont be taking a financial hit on it (at least not longer term).

perhaps they have a point about about a share of income based on how many female participants and fans there are in America.

A share of what income?

I think the argument about more money is a bit crass, but the USA women's team has been one of the best for many decades. Women's football is huge in the US, and perhaps they have a point about about a share of income based on how many female participants and fans there are in America.

They wanted to be paid the same as the USA men’s team which would have exceeded the entire income made from the women’s World Cup.   Percentage wise they got more of the take from the women’s World Cup than the men did from the men’s World Cup.  Bottom line, they  were looking for a cut of something they weren’t entitled to using the mythical gender pay gap argument.

The English women’s game is starting to get big crowds 20k - 30k - it’s a growing sport both participation and support, we would Rangers not want involved? 
 

in the 1920s women’s football attracted huge crowds - and then bizzarly it was made ‘illegal’ by the FA.

Agreed, give it a decade or so with a couple more WC and media exposure. Women's football could well regularly draw major crowds with a new generation of young fans. Having read most of the posts on here, most of our male generation will never recognise and get behind it but the the young girls watching and playing the game will significantly increase. 

Last season 50k watching Fiorentina v Juventus in Italy, where women's football has been traditionally popular.

Poll Result - Women and Girls Football Project

Club 1872 recently polled members on a potential project to fund various match day activities, supporter and community group transport and equipment assistance to the Women and Girls teams at Rangers. 

The result was as follows:   

Yes - 90.1%  

No - 9.9%

The project is therefore passed by the membership and we will communicate progress as it is implemented.

We would like to thank all Club 1872 members for their support.

Sorry?   and when did this suddenly happen? Their top fixture between Man C v Arsenal had under 1000 in attendance.

The recent 'ladies' England international being heralded as a total sell-out at Wembley Stadium,had a total of 77k at the game,75% of the tkts given free to schools.

Your second point in easily dealth wi,there was a dearth of young men after the 1st World War and people love their footie,they hadn't much else to relieve the drudgery of that time.

A bit of simple googling would have prevented you making an Arse of yourself !

2nd point 1st

On 5 December 1921, the Football Association effectively banned women from playing. They said at the time "the game of football is quite unsuitable for females and ought not to be encouraged". 
.......

More than 70,000 people turned out to celebrate women's football weekend on what was described as an "absolutely momentous" day for the Women's Super League.

Two WSL attendance records were broken on Sunday, as four out of six fixtures were played at men's Premier League and Championship grounds.

Arsenal's victory over north London rivals Tottenham was watched by a record 38,262 fans at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, while Anfield, hosting its first-ever WSL match, welcomed 23,500 supporters for the Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton.

Chelsea's home game against Manchester United at Kingsmeadow also saw a record crowd - the 4,790 sell-out was a new best for a WSL game held at a non-Premier League stadium.

Women’s football is having a lightbulb moment. With Manchester City hosting Manchester United at the Etihad stadium in the Women’s Super League in front of more than 31,000 fans, and Chelsea welcoming Tottenham to Stamford Bridge, change is afoot.

Don't hear from you fr weeks but when there's some PC crap agenda to push,up you pop.

Women weren't banned from playing football,they were banned from FA membership or using FA Stadia.

How many of the tkts were actually paid for or how many were freebees?

It's a footie forum,we can all make an arse of ourselves,EVEN YOU BP9 🙂
