Equal Pay in Brazil and England

Earlier this year, England and Brazil joined other countries, such as Australia, New Zealand, and Norway, in agreeing to pay both men and women soccer teams the same. Evers since the U.S. women’s soccer national team has sued the United States Soccer Confederation (USSF) over gender discrimination, pay disparity between male and female professional soccer players has been in the spotlight. 

England’s Football association (FA) stated that it has been paying its female and male players equally for representing England “in terms of match fees and match bonuses” since January. Rogério Caboclo, the president of the Brazilian Soccer Confederation, stated that “{s}ince March of this year, the CBF has equaled the prize money and daily rates between men’s and women’s football. That’s to say, the players earn the same as those who are called up [to the national team].” Furthermore, Caboclo declared that “{t}here is no more gender difference; the CBF is treating men and women equally.”

It’s amazing to see how the pay gap between female and male athletes is narrowing down little by little around the world. It’s incredible how in some countries, the pay gap has been completely eliminated. Hopefully at some point in the future, the pay gap between men and women will vanish.
