"Klädproblemet on the way to get an end for the female judges"
"ill-fitting clothes is a part of everyday life for the female soccer referee."
"Now confirms Copenhagen to the supplier Adidas after several years of dialogue – and, finally, have agreed to take forward womensizes."
"– They have finally understood and helped us to get to this, " says Stefan Abelsted, group manager for sales and business development. "
"the News, however, received with cautious enthusiasm by the female judge. "
"When Michaela Backlund from Östersund recently wrote a Facebook post, it highlighted once again the problem of non womensizes current domarkläder. "
"Backlund has sentenced football in 14 years and the judge right now division 1 ladies. In an interview with P4 Jämtland she told me about the frustration of basically drowning in the jacket and pants as she been pay for. "
" I am the not-so-long, 162 cm. If I'm not going to get these pants to look like the old riding breeches so I have to pull them up really gubblångt in the chest, " says Michaela Backlund in the element. "
"a few years ago changed the Adidas from men's sizes to unisexmodeller (down to XS) in order to meet the need. It obviously has not facilitated the much for the women who today are condemning football in Sweden. "
"– We are many who have known to dressarna does not fit. Women have other forms than men, " says Michaela Backlund to Sportbladet."
"– We will not be sacrificed. It does not feel like you are interested to have female judges then."
"Have you received a lot of responses for your post?"
"– Many herrdomare have heard of and think it is great that we have raised the issue. So it is time that we get through the change."
"moreover, There are many rules to take into account. The Swedish logo is, for example, the Adidas product and may not be printed on the garment at any time. "
"But change is in sight. It announces Bengt Ivarsson of Swedish Fotbolldomareförbundet. "
"They are now to sign a contract," says Ivarsson, who adds that the dialogue between the Swedish Football association and klädjätten has been slow:"
" Sweden is a pioneer country in terms of gender equality but a small country vis-à-vis Adidas. "
"Must be nice to get an end on the discussion?"
" Absolutely, we care about the female judges so it's really fun!"
"”Are incredibly far ahead in comparison with other”"
"From next year, the idea is to offer should also be available in the womensizes. Stefan Abelsted, group manager for sales and business development at Copenhagen, developing:"
" We have been working with Adidas since 2013, and yes, they are controlled by their international collection. So we have tried to talk to them long because we know that there is a need and wishes in this, " says Abelsted. "
"He points out that it was not so many years ago that damproportioner on the football jerseys are not even available for klubbverksamheter."
"Why do you think they have chosen to listen now? "
" I think mainly it has with the market making, everything is on sale. In mångmiljardindustrin Adidas are the female judges not central, as they are to us. "
"Stefan Abelsted tells us that it can be clearly seen that Sweden is a pioneer country in terms of equal think. "
"– When we sit with the Uefa or Fifa so we feel that we are so incredibly far ahead compared with many others. Many times they do not understand even this type of questions, explains Abelsted. "
"”I daren't shout hello... '"
"the News, however, received with cautious enthusiasm by Michaela Backlund. "
"– It has been going on for a very long time so therefore dare not shout hello. We are very many who have felt like this in many years, " says Backlund, who has been disappointed in the fact that the Swedish Football association did not put major pressure on Adidas in the past."
"She says that it would mean a lot if klädjätten deliver what they promise."
"– There are many people who receive this with open arms. So I'm looking forward to it and hope it will be as it is said. "
