FIFA's Men's World Cup in 2018 paid a total of $400 million out to the male players on the 32 male teams.

FIFA's Women's World Cup in 2019 will pay a total of $30 million out to the female players on the 24 female teams.

So many have claimed that the women are underpaid. Here is an example:

https://www.cnbc.com/2019/06/07/the-...0-million.html


However, there is more to the story.

The FIFA Men's World Cup in 2018 hosted in Russia brought in $6.1 Billion in Revenue for FIFA.

That is the men get to keep 6.5% of Revenue generated ($0.4 Billion/$6.1 Billion).

Current predictions are that the ongoing FIFA Women's World Cup in 2019 hosted by France will generate $0.13 Billion for FIFA for the full 4 year cycle.

That is the women will get to keep 23% of Revenue generated ($0.03 Billion/$0.13 Billion).

Please note that the full 4 year FIFA Women's World Cup cycle generated $0.13 Billion for FIFA while the summer tournament FIFA Men's World Cup lasted a few weeks and alone generated $6.1 Billion. The men's teams make so much more in revenue due to significantly increased ticket demand and TV viewer demand globally.


Is there a gender pay gap with FIFA's World Cup?

Already been discussed. The revenue generated is night and day different between the two leagues, and the facts shows that the men are actually underpaid as a share of total revenue, compared to the women.

There are maybe two sports where the women are typically as big or bigger draw than the men - tennis and gymnastics. In those sports, the women makes as much or more than men.

Pretty simple economic forces at work, nothing misogynist or nefarious about it. People simply like men's soccer more and more will pay to see it and buy the merchandise.

I have seen on TV or articles online nearly a dozen times that FIFA is under rewarding the women. It is a growing movement.

However, they always mention that the 32 men's teams get a total of $400 million and the 24 women's teams get a total of $30 million...while the SJW ignore the $6.1 Billion brought in by the men versus the $0.13 Billion for the women...meaning the women keep over 3.5 times more of their revenue.

In terms of the World Cup and professional sport, it's often based on prize money and itr's up to individual countries football asociations to decide how the money is distributed.

As for domestic football, you are paid more the higher the league you play in, and different players evem in top mens teams are not all paid the same, indeed star players often receive far more money. Indeed the American women's football (soccer) team does far better in terms of prize money than the American Men''s Team, even if the prize money on offer reflects the status and popularity of womens football when compred to the men'r world cup.

If the US Women would rather have more appearance money the prize money could be used to pay for this, as you can't expect to have a massive increase in appearance fees and expect to also claim the same amount of prize money.

It also seems given the circumstances and the fact they are already well paid, and the amount they are paid is dictated by the United States Soccer Federation and not Fifa, as Fifa, allows individual countriee decide on how much to pay in appearance fees and how to divide up prize money.

Thinly veiled attempt at what? Adding revenue to give better context - something that much of the media doesn't do.

Does indisputable facts hurt your feelings, because it weakens your politics?
