USMNT, USWNT reach equal pay in historic CBAs: World Cup prize money split


The CBAs, which run through 2028, have identical compensation for all competitions, including the FIFA World Cup, and the introduction of the same commercial revenue-sharing mechanism for both teams. U.S. Soccer is the first federation worldwide to equalize FIFA World Cup prize money across the men’s and women’s programs.

The CBAs also include updates to player health and safety, data privacy and the need to balance responsibilities to both club and country.

“This is a truly historic moment. These agreements have changed the game forever here in the United States and have the potential to change the game around the world,” U.S. Soccer president Cindy Parlow Cone said in a release. “U.S. Soccer and the USWNT and USMNT players have reset their relationship with these new agreements and are leading us forward to an incredibly exciting new phase of mutual growth and collaboration as we continue our mission to become the preeminent sport in the United States.”
