It's not a question of how good they are, it's a question of how many people watch the games. More people watch male soccer than female, so companies pay more for advertisements. which means the teams have more disposable income which leads to higher wages for male players. Either that or prove me wrong.

That's in the world, but in the US more people watch US womens world cup play than US men's, one reason for that is the women play more games than the men. The US men did not even make the cut in the last Mens world cut and probably wont make the cut for the next world cup and the 2026 auto invite will probably go to Canada.

The solution is obvious. People shall be forced to watch women's soccer until equity is achieved.

If you want to watch crappy soccer watch the US Men's World Cup you want to watch good watch US Women's World Cup.

Men get 9% of the total revenue for the Men's World Cup which makes billions of dollars. Women get 13% of the total revenue for the Women's World Cup which does not make billions of dollars. I know mathematics and feminism aren't the best or friends but surely someone can point out to these ladies that 2+2 does not equal REEEEE.

Top female footballers are not as good as top male footballers. Biology.

Bet the US women's team could beat the US men's team. Now if you are trying as say the women's game is not as entertaining as the men's you would be wrong. Some are some aren't but the same can be said of the men's game. Even casual fans of soccer know the US Women's game is far better entertainment than the US Mens team.

But the men’s team would actually win. Not to be sexist, but women are biologically weaker and slower than men. Them having a natural athletic superiority could just win the match alone.

Women world cup level isn't even close to 15 year old schoolboy level, as has been proven several times.

Without googling it, tell me who the #1 male football player is, good, now tell me who the #1 female player is. That's why there's no "pay equity", want better pay? Tell it to your agent!

But the Womens World Cup revenue raised is only $131 million compared to the mens World Cup of $6 billion. Mens big teams who sell out a stadium every time, Brazil, Germany, Italy, France, England, Argentina and on and on... Now name the top 5 womens teams that can do the same. You need to look outside the USA to get the full picture. I see people from the Philippines, Japan, China, Australia wearing shirts of international players shirts that don't belong to their country. I am Australian and I have an Italian Del Piero shirt and an Ariel Ortega Argentina shirt and a French Ribbery shirt. Please show me someone who is not from the US wearing a womens US players shirt.

13-0 proves it's not a competitive league. Play against men then forever shut the fuck up.

Yeah, there’s a simple reason they don’t get paid nearly as much, and it doesn’t really have to do with sexism (at least not intentional sexism). There is a MASSIVE difference in the number of people who watch the men’s World Cup vs the women’s World Cup, the men’s is way more popular and as such they get paid more.

Why should the men's team be paid as much as the women, the women's team has actually won several world cups, they draw more to the stands have higher tv ratings than the men.

Honest to god I think the US female soccer team gets more views than the male team (at least in the US). However I don’t really think they’ll get the kind of ratings the NFL, NBA, and NHL get here... We just don’t care about professional soccer, I understand he rest of the world likes it but it’s never caught on over here. (I suspect this is due to the faking injury thing that’s so prevalent in professional soccer, tends to make them look like a bunch of little bitches...)

Once the women can draw the same size of audience, then they shall have equal pay. It’s not an entitlement.

The game makes less money because even 15 year old boys trash them repeatedly on the field. Soccer is already boring and slow, just imagine its now slower and less skillful. Make a budget product expect budget prices.
