1 month ago

Brazil have announced they will become one of the few nations to pay their women’s and men’s football teams equally.

Brazil’s female players such as Marta will be paid the same as Neymar, Gabriel Jesus and Roberto Firmino.

“The CBF has equalled the prize money and allowances between men’s and women’s football, which means the women players will earn the same as the men,” said the federation’s president Rogerio Caboclo.

Brazil join Australia, Norway and New Zealand among the nations who pay their men and women the same amount.

It will be applied to the teams participating in the Olympics next year as well as the next World Cup tournaments.

Caboclo said:

“It will be proportionally the same as what Fifa proposes for women, that is to say, there will be no more gender difference in remuneration between men and women.”
