Equal Pay for play for US Women’s Soccer

Huge news for fans of the decorated US Women’s national team.

After years of the discrepancy between men and women in pay for play, The U.S. Soccer Federation and the U.S. women’s national team agreed to settle a class action equal pay lawsuit on Tuesday.

Within the bargaining agreement, U.S. Soccer will pay an additional $2 million into an account for USWNT players post-career, as well as other charitable efforts related to women’s soccer.

In the statement, each player can apply for up to $50,000 from this fund.

Over the past decade, the dominance of the national team has long made the likes of Rapinoe, Hope Solo, and Alex Morgan household names, despite not getting the compensation to support it. After outperforming the men in certain respects, this was a long-time coming.

On Good Morning America, Megan Rapinoe spoke on her gratitude on the matter, “proud” of the progress and marking this day as a landmark where the sport has changed in the states for the better.
