Swedish Women’s Hockey Team Boycott Training Camp and Tournament

A total of 43 national team players are involved in the boycott, which is seemingly about the lack of compensation they receive while on duty with the national team.

Does anyone give a shit?

Didn’t think so!

In a coordinated social media statement released on Wednesday, 43 members of Sweden’s women’s national hockey team announced they will be boycotting their upcoming training camp and Five Nations tournament due to lack of support and financial compensation from the Swedish Ice Hockey Association.

The statement is titled #FörFramtiden, which translates to ‘for the future’ and was posted to Twitter by the players Wednesday morning. It echoes the #BeBoldForChange movement from the United States Women’s National Team and, more recently, #ForTheGame from the Professional Women’s Hockey Association.

All three movements are geared towards acquiring fair compensation and support from governing bodies.
