The United States reaches a historic agreement so that the men's and women's soccer teams earn the same

The Federation announces that both will share the income they obtain from their participation in the World Cups



Male soccer players on the United States men's soccer team earned more money for qualifying for the World Cup than female soccer players for winning it.

That ended.

The United States Soccer Federation has reached two labor agreements that imply that the men's and women's teams will be paid the same.

It is a historic step towards equal pay in sport.

No other country has a similar agreement.

In the United States, it has come after years of protests and under the pressure of a wage discrimination lawsuit in which the soccer players scored a victory in February of this year.

What was then a judicial triumph, has now been reflected in two agreements with the associations of male and female soccer players.

The agreement has an initial validity until 2028 and implies that the two teams share the prizes they get for their participation in international sporting events.

The next one is the World Cup in Qatar at the end of this year.
