TRIGGER WARNING - USWNT passes USMNT in generated revenue
LINK

quote:

The US women's soccer team made more revenue than the men's team over the last three years, according to financial reports analyzed by the Wall Street Journal.


quote:

Women's games reportedly brought in $50.8 million from 2016 to 2018 from mostly ticket sales. Men's games made $49.9 million in the same time frame. Before 2016, however, the men's team had generated more revenue every year, sometimes by more than $10 million.




quote:

Ticket sales make up just part of the US Soccer Federation operating revenue. The organization bundles brand sponsorships and broadcast sales between the two teams, making it harder to distinguish the difference in revenue, the Journa sa ysl.

The women's team revenue spiked in 2016 after they won the World Cup, outpacing the men's team's earnings by $1.9 million.


quote:

"Here's an idea: If you win 13-0-the most goals for a single game in World Cup history-you should be paid at least equally to the men's team," Gillibrand, a New York senator, tweeted.


quote:

Members of US women's team filed a lawsuit in March against the US Soccer Federation alleging that gender-based wage discrimination violates the Civil Rights Act. The lawsuit claims that female players make $4,950 a game ($99,000 annually) if they play 20 times a year, while men earn $13,166 a game, or $263,320 a year.

Women players earned just $15,000 for making the World Cup team, while men got $55,000 for making the roster in 2014, the lawsuit says.

The women played about 14 more home matches than the men did during this time frame.

The ignorance here is laughable.

How about do this differently?

Tell Nike you want them to tell you how much goes to USWNT and how much to USMNT

I’m sure it’s done the way it is solely to prevent the disparity being known

Why would they do that?

And why would Nike say anything except "50/50"?

So they can figure out how to properly compensate them

You are right here.
No way in hell would Nike say anything but 50/50

Yeah I was already questioning this. They've played a shite load more home games.

I also wonder how many more away tickets are sold to men's games. Those outlaws don't frick around and travel all over the world to watch them.

Look, I think it’s bull shite claim as well, but it ultimately is true. I expect to hear this A LOT throughout the end of the World Cup and I doubt that will ever be mentioned

I don't know if it was this article or the other one but they completely gloss over the revenue brought in through TV licensing etc, except to mention that Dove and Visa in a world cup year wanted to use the USWMNT to market.

The women probably need to re-negotiate their deal but no one cares about watching on TV the "she believes cup" or friendlies against the same 6 countries. No one cares about watching on TV qualifying because its a joke.

It’s a lot easier to for them to play more games, all they have to do is find a local U15 boys team. But hey they beat a team 13-0 in the World Cup!

I don't blame the girls for trying. Our best starting 11 on the mens side are making bank playing for their clubs. I'm assuming Alex Morgan is the only one on the current womans team to get rich off of soccer, and that's through endorsements. Some irony here in that the men probably don't care at all what they make unless you count in whatever large bonus they get for the World Cup.

Edit: After a quick google search, the second richest female soccer player is Julie Ertz. Surprise, she happens to be the second hottest on the team.

They probably don't care what the women make, but I'd bet a lot of the MLS players care what the men make.

They would get paid if they played in Europe for the club season

re: TRIGGER WARNING - USWNT passes USMNT in generated revenue
The truth is I despise and loathe the USWNT. They politicize the game and lack pride in representing their country. People watch sports to escape from the daily grind of politics and life not to be reminded of the sexist pigs they are. I also find the quality of women’s soccer to be very boring and lackluster compared to the men’s. Lastly their complete lack of the understanding of basic economics is infuriating
