Earlier this week history was made.
The United States Soccer Federation (USSF), the United States Women's National Team Players Association (USWNTPA) and the United States National Soccer Team Players Association (USNSTPA) agreed to terms on a landmark collective bargaining agreement (CBA).
The first-of-its-kind agreement will achieve equal pay and set a new standard in international soccer. U.S. Soccer becomes the first Federation in the world to equalize FIFA World Cup prize money awarded to both the U.S. Men’s National Team and U.S. Women’s National Team.
The two CBAs, which run through 2028, achieve equal pay through identical economic terms. These economic terms include identical compensation for all competitions, including the FIFA World Cup, and the introduction of the same commercial revenue sharing mechanism for both teams. The agreements will ensure that U.S. Soccer’s Senior National Team players remain among the highest paid in the world.
