U.S. Soccer will provide equal pay to
members of its men’s and women’s national teams after an agreement on
new collective bargaining agreements was reached Wednesday.

Andrew Das of the New York Times
reported the USMNT and USWNT agreed to place all of their earnings
into a single pool, including a “notable concession” from the
men’s side to include the money from the lucrative men’s FIFA World
Cup, that will then be divided equally among all players who take part in international matches.

“No other country has ever done
this,” U.S. Soccer president Cindy Parlow Cone said. “I think
everyone should be really proud of what we’ve accomplished here. It
really, truly is historic.”
