Megan Campbell is an Ireland International and Manchester City defender she spent three years at Florida State University where she experienced very different conditions for women playing professional football. Last week she stood beside her team mates who challenged Ireland’s governing body to provide basic remuneration and resources to its national squad so they no longer had to share team kit such as a track suit or get changed in public restrooms. Their campaign to stand their ground for equality comes at a time which saw the US Soccer and US Ice Hockey teams win their battles for better pay and conditions to gain more recognition for their commitment and contribution to their national team. Megan has previously played for St. Francis, Raheny United. In 2010 she was a member the Republic of Ireland U-17 squad that were runners-up at the 2010 UEFA Women's Under-17 Championship and quarter-finalists at the 2010 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup. Megan was signed up my Manchester City in February 2016 and is currently rehabbing from an ankle injury at their football academy where she joins me from now.
