“For finishing in third place in the 2003 Women’s World Cup, each U.S. women’s national soccer team member was awarded $25,000. They would have received $58,000 if they had won the Cup. For reaching the quarterfinal of the World Cup in 2002, the U.S. men’s national soccer team members received $200,000 each.”

Let’s make this something that gets talked about more in the media.

“All 16 national federations for the teams that failed to get out of the group stage at the 2014 men’s World Cup received $8 million from FIFA. That was $6 million more than the winning national federation will receive at this year’s Women’s World Cup, and that is just the start of the disparity.”

Let’s not forget about this f*cking travesty. We must keep demanding more out of FIFA and their trash federation.

       

FIFA, the international soccer organization, has long been seen as corrupt—and now U.S. and Swiss authorities are doing something about it. Nine FIFA officials were indicted Wednesday on charges of corruption in a $150 million bribery scandal, and more charges are likely coming. Part of the scandal includes the controversial decision to let Qatar host the World Cup in 2022. Construction of stadiums in Qatar has led to more than 1,000 worker deaths because of harsh labor conditions. At the current rate, at least 62 workers will have died for every World Cup game played.

Watch President Obama call the U.S. Women’s National Team to congratulate them on becoming World Cup champions.

Sexism is: that the usmnt gets called “U.S. soccer” on every social media site, while uswnt has to make their own accounts that aren’t even verified.

Sexism is: uswnt getting paid less for winning the World Cup, than the men who lost in the round of 16.

Sexism is: women’s World Cup being broadcasted on secondary channels, when the men had games on regular channels that everyone has.

Sexism is: the women’s World Cup being played on turf when everyone knows damn well that the men would NEVER Have to play on turf.

Do not ever tell me that the women’s game is equal

The men made it to the Round of 16 in the World Cup. They are ranked 30th in the world. Um… They… play… with so much… passion.


EDIT: There seems to be some confusion, so I’ll add this part:
“Well, we actually broke the record for the most-watched soccer game in the history of America, between men or women. We’ve brought in, what, $17 million this past year, while the men lost $2 million in profit for the federation this last year”
Also, this is a federal complaint accusing U.S. Soccer of wage discrimination comparing to the United States men’s national soccer team. Not abt all sports in all countries
