Brazil has announced that they will become a few countries to pay their women’s and men’s soccer teams equally.
Brazilian women players like Marta will be paid the same as Neymar, Gabriel Jesus and Roberto Firmino.
“The CBF has equated prizes and money between men’s and women’s football, which means female players will earn the same as men,” said Rosario Caboclo, president of the federation.
Brazil, along with Australia, Norway and New Zealand, will decide to pay their countries and men the same amount.
Last year, the current female world champion United States filed a lawsuit against their federation, alleging discrimination in pay-terms.
The party appealed earlier this year after a judge dismissed their case.
‘Ambition is to make WSL the best in the world’
According to Kelly Simmons, the FA’s head of professional football, an arrival in the big transfers will make the Women’s Super League the best in the world.
WSL clubs have been active in the transfer market this summer, attracting World Cup-winning and European stars to England’s top division.
Simmons insisted that signing Parnell Hard with Manchester City’s Rose Lavel and Sam Mayweather, as well as Chelsea, would be good for the club and fans.
“It would be great to see top English players like Rose Lavelle, one of the best players in the world, play,” he told Simmons. Sky Sports News.
“The Women’s Super League, where it’s true, is not the best league in the world, but one of the best. It’s our ambition.”
Powell: The WSL must be competitive
Hopefully Powell, however, wants the WSL to be competitive as more and more high-profile players move into the top tier of England.
The WSL has been dominated in recent years by the ‘Big Three’ of Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal, all of whom have signed big names this summer – but they are not the only team – and Brighton boss Powell thinks it’s important. The league holds its competitive edge.
“We’re not mistaken. It’s going to be difficult, especially with some WSL players,” he said. Sky Sports News. “It’s going to be hard work.
“We want to be as competitive as we can, we want to compete with the top teams in the league. We go out and try to win, to be able to compete.”
“We want the league to be what it is. We wanted it to be professional, we wanted it to be the best in the world and attract talent. It’s doing a lot of what it wanted us to do. Now the challenge is to keep it competitive.”
