Published by Nairaland on Wed, 15 Sep 2021

The men's team failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.<br><br>Prize money at the 2018 men's World Cup totalled $400m (312m), with winners France receiving $38m (29.7m). The prize fund for the 2019 Women's World Cup was $30m (23.4m), with winners the United States receiving $4m (3.1m).<br><br>The lawsuit from the women's team was filed by 28 women's national team players seeking $66m (52.8m) in damages under the Equal Pay Act.<br><br>&quot;This proposal will provide a revenue sharing structure that would allow all parties to begin anew and share collectively in the opportunity that combined investment in the future of US Soccer will deliver over the course of a new collective bargaining agreement,&quot; the USSF statement added.<br><br>The men's and women's unions are separate and have no obligation to bargain jointly or agree similar terms under US law.<br><br>If either party does not agree to a new deal, US Soccer says it will invite each union to sit in on negotiations for full transparency.<br></blockquote><a rel=ugc href="https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/58570827">https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/58570827</a>
