The World Cup champions and the U.S. Soccer Federation failed to reach an agreement in the players' suit over equal pay.

The letter stated that the federation paid out $34.1 million in salary and game bonuses to the women between 2010 and 2018 as opposed to $26.4 million paid to the men. The total did not include the value of benefits received only by the women, like health care, Cordeiro wrote.

"It is clear that USSF, including its Board of Directors and President Carlos Cordeiro, fully intend to continue to compensate women players less than men. They will not succeed," Levinson said Wednesday."We want all of our fans, sponsors, peers around the world, and women everywhere to know we are undaunted and will eagerly look forward to a jury trial."

"Despite inflammatory statements from their spokesperson, which are intended to paint our actions inaccurately and unfairly, we are undaunted in our efforts to continue discussions in good faith," the statement said.

They hadn't done that? Dam Sum up: US Soccer claims men’s union played hardball & got them a better deal, implying women’s union should have been tougher if they wanted better pay. Women do just that & are immediately characterized as ‘too aggressive’ by US Soccer. ¯\\_(ツ)_/¯ This is seriously a joke. If the team supported the current administration nobody would be talking about this. Example, is the Left demanding WNBA players get paid the same as NBA players?

If they aren't generating the same revenue as the men's team, they should not get paid the same. The democrat party and progressive left are an anachronism and completely out of touch with the American electorate. Equal pay? Take an economy class? Man should now sue Mother Nature 🌬 for not being able to have children.

Do as many people watch the women play as they do men? I'm genuinely not trying to be sexist just saying if the income for the organization is less than the income for the players should be to. That's just fair. Hmmmmm Get a better job.. no one cares 3 weeks after their done.... who are they disband the team

Football needs viewers to make profit, they can’t pay wages out of thin air. Men’s football makes a lot more money as a business right now, wether you like it or not. You’ll earn as much as the mens team when you can play at the same level as the mens team Youre the same womens team that got beat by a team of 14 year old boys and yet think you deserve millions Get real

Morgan, llamame!! If you break down the true 100% facts they are not under paid. What needs to happen is a sponsor for the team to make up for women’s soccer not bringing money in anywhere close to men’s soccer. Who is the female Messi or Beckham or Ronaldo? YAAWWWNNN Did you say something? What time is the Steelers game this week?

7/11 bread+eggs+ bananashekh Pay them more then. They actually win games! Ok, Im sure going to get some crap for this, but it seems to be pretty well known that men's professional ball games are more exciting and enticing than the same games played by women. So shouldnt that alone create a pay disparity?

Pffft,. Whatever They kick a ball. Minimum wage at Best.
