Do you believe women’s World Cup team should get paid as much as men despite the fact that men’s World Cup made 6 billion in revenue while women’s World Cup made 131 million?

  • Why distinguish between men’s and women’s World Cup anyway — Just have one World Cup and let everyone play, whichever team wins gets the prizes. That’d be pretty equal isn’t it?

      if it's anything like tennis or basketball they could probably put a high school men's team out there

      The US women national team lost to a Under 15 boy team in Dallas a few years ago. Let that sink in when you think about mixing men and women.

      They lost one game a few years ago. If France loses a friendly game against a group of 15 year old girls are we gonna ban soccer?

      The women stopped playing boys after they lost. It would happen repeatedly if they played.

    The us women’s team brings in more than the us men’s team. In fact they have been supporting the men’s team for years. The revenue of the World Cup overall is irrelevant here — other countries are extremely sexist and haven’t developed womens game the way the us has.

      This is factually inaccurate due to the amount of money that the World Cup makes.

      If you have evidence that sponsorships make the women’s team more money - ok... I’m always happy to learn something new. However, you’re going to have to prove that instead of write a feels based post

      Is it possible you don’t understand that FIFA and US soccer are different organizations? The us women generate more money for us soccer than the men, even after including the money US soccer gets from FIFA

      Is it possible that employees are paid on potential future value as well as past performance? The men have exponentially higher potential revenue than the women and are compensated accordingly.

  • Stupid survey. Why would you look at World Cup revenue when the players are employed by and are suing the US Soccer Federation (they’re employer). For their employer, women have brought in more revenue and therefore, based on the results of this shitty survey, should be making more. Right? Or what am I missing?

    By total revenue, uswnt already brings in more than usmnt. But they get shafted :( zero compensation for a lost game, wtf? Men get $5k each when they lose. And they lose a lot more than the women!

      Men get paid on bonuses only per game. Women get a 100k base salary. It comes down to the last collective bargaining agreements.

      Although I believe the MLS clubs.pay the players to be on the national team as well.

      Regarding revenues, because the men's team sucked.so badly and missed the cup, the women's team made more revenue. So they should probably have made more than the men over the past few years.

      The biggest inequality is the facilities and travel etc. The women have to deal with much lower quality stuff which is just shameful.

    Soccer is boring. Nobody should get any money.

      By that metric, nobody should get money for software engineering either 😆

    If the men made the World Cup final, their viewership, revenue, and sponsorship opportunities would be 100x that of the women. Pay isn’t just about past results, it’s also about future potential ROI.

    Do male swimsuit models make as much as women?

      You are saying the US men's team has potential to get to the final?????

      Its non-zero chance with billions of dollars in potential reward, vs the women have a 50% chance of winning $100M pot. Vegas currently has US men’s team at 60-1 odds of winning the 2022 World Cup.

      What? 60 to 1? Americans are fucking crazy. They are part of one of the easiest qualifiers and didn't get to qualify

      Thanks for the tip though, I'm gonna bet against them

      Yeah, doesn’t matter for this argument. What does matter is the math for why men logically get paid more than women in this profession, just like there are pay gaps in porn star pay, swimsuit models, etc.

    Would you also support pay of CEO of startup same as that of Google's?

    Misleading premise. You're comparing global World Cup revenue but the numbers for the *US* men's and women's teams are about equal.

    The complaint isn't about the global World Cup prize money (which is outside the teams' control) but the salary (& other comp) they are paid to be part of the national-level professional team the rest of the time.

    Men are paid 7% of the total revenue.
    Women are paid 22% of the total revenue.
    Now you tell me.

      Google pays 50% of revenue. Your startup pays 1000%. What’s your point?

      You are proportionally worth the revenue you bring in. If anything, men are getting paid less.
