English term or phrase: soccer mom
Does anyone have a suggestion for an idiomatic expression that would be recognized in the majority of LA countries?
Frank
Spanish translation:Madres que trabajan
Explanation:
that's what I suggested to the same question posted a long time ago. The context was Marketing. I think it is about mothers who go out to work and they are easily spotted attending their children's soccer games at their communities. These mothers have been in high demand for their vote this electoral season, since they are swing voters and they are expected to be a crucial factor in the election outcome.
Their main trait is not being 'footboleras',or football fans, they have attained that visibility thanks to their economic and social impact as working mothers. You may use the 'footboleras' label but make sure what their strength really is.

Explanation:
"Soccer mom" is an expression or 'nickname' given to mother(s) who support, encourage (and are real fans) her children activities in soccer practice. My shot: "Madre pro-fútbol" (or 'balonpié').
Luck!

Explanation:
If your text is aimed at Mexicans, moms would understand "mamás futboleras" very well!
