The Colombian player association organised the delivery of food and water for 101 players left without a salary or social security when the coronavirus forced the suspension of the national women’s league.

Many of the players quit their regular jobs to enroll in a three-month professional league, but were sent home in March during preseason, almost all without the security of a contract.

Player association ACOLFUTPRO together with the Colombian government is working so that the professional League scheduled for this year takes place, "We are providing assistance to the players who followed their dream of being professional footballers but are now in a difficult social situation", Carolina Rozo, director of women's football. at ACOLFUTPRO. "We are working to ensure that they obtain decent working conditions”.
