The United States is the most successful country in women’s soccer with four world titles. The American football players expanded their world title in 2019 by defeating Orange in the final 2-0. They’ve also been leading the world rankings for quite some time now. The US men’s team is much less successful, but the guys were still better paid.
Led by superstar Megan Rapinoe, the women’s team competed with the National Federation. They even went to court, but two years ago they rejected a $66 million claim. After years of legal battle, the two parties have now found each other.
“We have resolved our longstanding dispute over equal pay,” US Soccer said in a statement. “We will work together to advance equality in football. The football players on Team USA have achieved unprecedented success working for equal pay for themselves and the next generation. This is their moment.” Rapinoe, 36, calls it a “big win”.
Exact financial arrangements have not yet been defined in a collective labor agreement, equal for men and women.
