But that’s only part of the story. The women are underpaid by the U.S. Soccer Federation, too. According to a lawsuit filed earlier this year by members of the U.S. women’s team, they get paid as little as 40% of what the men’s team does. For example, according to the lawsuit, women would earn about $99,000 each for winning all 20 of the “friendly” matches they're required to play each year, whereas members of the men’s team would get paid $263,320 for doing the same. And it gets worse from there with the women players pointing out that they have inferior training facilities, travel accommodations and promotions.
