The American Football Federation has announced that it has offered identical contract proposals to the players’ associations of the men’s and women’s national teams.
The USSF said in a statement that the offer was “with the aim of aligning the senior men’s and women’s national teams under a single collective agreement structure (CBA).”
He added: “US Soccer strongly believes that the best way forward for everyone involved, and for the future of the sport in the United States, is a single compensation structure for the two senior national teams.
“This proposal will ensure that USWNT and USMNT players remain among the highest paid senior national team players in the world, while providing a revenue-sharing structure that would allow all parties to start from scratch and to collectively share the opportunity that combines investment in the future of US Soccer will live up to during a new CBA. “
The statement also said that the federation called on the players and the two player associations to join it in “finding a way to equalize the prizes of the FIFA World Cup between the USMNT and the USWNT”.
“US Soccer will not accept any collective agreement that does not take the important step of equalizing the FIFA World Cup prizes,” he said.
In 2019, the players on the women’s team filed their names in a lawsuit against the USSF for equal pay and working conditions.
In May of last year, the equal pay request was rejected by a federal judge and an appeal was subsequently launched.
An agreement between the USSF and the women’s team on working conditions has been reached.
