More than 80 million in 2008 for the men’s Euro football tournament, and only 4 million for the women’s: the gap is glaring. Too glaring for the majority of the National Council which, this Tuesday, increased the envelope to 15 million francs, in order to provide more resources for the competition which will welcome the best teams on the continent next year. The right, combining PLR and UDC, as well as the Federal Council and its big money boss Karin Keller-Sutter suffered a first setback. This will be final if the Council of States confirms the decision.

The left, the Green Liberals and the Center managed to form three packages of 5 million each. The first is intended for the Federal Sports Office and incentive measures (approved by 122 votes to 72), the second for a discount for public transport tickets (117 to 77) and the third for international advertising of the championship that Suisse Tourisme will ensure (100 yes, 93 no and 4 abstentions).
