Spain’s women’s soccer team to boycott play until federation president resigns

August 25, 2023

Spain’s World Cup-winning women’s soccer team, La Roja, is refusing to play as long as the president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), Luis Rubiales, remains in his position.

The statement comes after Rubiales said he would not step down from his role following his kissing of Spain’s forward Jenni Hermoso at the medals ceremony in Sydney. axios
