The Royal Spanish Football Federation did not recognise women’s football until 1980.  In 1971 RFEF president José Luis PérezPayá Soler (28 March 1928 – 12 August 2022) who played for Spain (1955) and Real Madrid is reported to have said that he did not like women’s football: “I don’t think it’s feminine from an aesthetic point of view. Women are not favoured wearing shirts and shorts. Any regional dress would fit them better.”
