Women and men of the USA national soccer team will receive equal compensation. USSF, USWNTPA and USNSTPA have agreed terms of historic, one-of-a-kind collective bargaining agreements that achieve parity of pay and set the global standard for international soccer.
The agreements achieve equal pay through identical economic conditions. 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 the players of the United States national soccer team remain among the highest paid in the world. Under these agreements, US Soccer becomes the first federation in the world to equalize the FIFA World Cup cash prize awarded to the United States Women's National Team and the United States Men's National Team for participation in their respective World Cups.

Soccer and the USWNT and USMNT players have re-established their relationship with these new deals and are leading us into an incredibly exciting new phase of mutual growth and collaboration as we continue our mission to become the pre-eminent sport in the United States.
I am grateful for the sport. commitment and collaboration of the men's and women's national team and I am incredibly proud of the hard work that has led to this moment.
