This is not fair or equitable. I thought women wanted to be judged by merit?
The fruits of the new agreement between the U.S. men’s and women’s soccer teams is about to pay off.
Under the equal-pay agreement signed this year, the teams will split the prize money for the World Cup. That means that both teams will get $6.5 million for the men’s team advancing to the Round of 16 and will continue to split the prize money down the middle.
The terms, agreed to in May and formally signed in September, put both teams on the same payment model through 2028.
