The American Football Confederation has announced a historic decision. Men and women will share the same unequal awards and bonuses offered by FIFA. The American Football Confederation announced on Wednesday (18/05) that men and women playing for the country will receive the same pay in international competitions, under a historic agreement. Sharing prizes and bonuses, including participating in tournaments and World Cups. In this way, teams will combine the unequal payments of cash prizes offered by the International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA) to participate in the World Cups. So from the men’s tournament in Qatar in 2022 and the Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand in 2023, the money will be divided equally between the members of both teams. “No other country has done that,” said Cindy Barlow Cohn, president of the American Football Confederation. “I think everyone should be very proud of what we’ve achieved.” “The next step is for other federations around the world to look at what we have done and start doing the same,” Barlow Cone told reporters. “We encourage federations and FIFA to match all prizes to cash,” he said, concluding the campaign for equality, a historic agreement that co-ordinated the many years of struggle of players who started the World Cup pay campaign. Despite winning world championships and Olympic gold medals, athletes have been arguing that they have been paid less than their male counterparts for decades. The issue eventually went to court, with the Women’s Federation accusing it of “institutionalized gender discrimination”. Although they lost in federal court in 2020, they won at the negotiating table with the support of the men’s team. Between 2010 and 2019, the American women’s team won the 2015 and 2019 World Cups and finished second at the 2011 World Cup. The men were eliminated in the 16th round of the 2010 and 2014 World Cups. Not even participating in the 2018 championship. le (Reuters, Oats)
