US Soccer Federation & unions reach agreement. Payment equalized for women & men players.

Where: United States

The Facts

The US Soccer Federation and the unions of the US Women’s and Men’s National Teams have agreed to the terms of first-of-their-kind collective bargaining agreements (CBAs), achieving “true equal pay” for women and men players.
The CBAs, which run through to 2028, will be separate and different for every team but will include identical working conditions and economic terms, including appearance fees, commercial revenue share, game bonuses, etc.
Under the CBAs, the US Women’s and Men’s National Teams will also pool in and share the FIFA World Cup prize money awarded to them for participating in their respective World Cups.
The US Soccer Federation is the first soccer body in the world to equalize FIFA World Cup prize money.
US Soccer President Cindy Cone stated, “These agreements have changed the game forever here in the United States and have the potential to inspire change around the world.”
