Pia Sundage interview
On why Damallsvenskan manages to attract foreign stars
- The league has a good organisation and a good reputation. And the simple fact that there is no american professional league any more.
On the influence of foreign players in Damallsvenskan
- You get different ways to play the game, brasilian technique and american competitivness, that will improve the league. And high profile players will draw more media attendance, more spectators and more money to the game.
On the present "boom" in swedish women's football
- Already during the last EC 2001 the media interest for the wonen's team became bigger and after WC 2003 even individual players got well known. Also the play is getting better year by year. I think the game deserves every printed word and every second on TV it gets.
