Brazil has announced their intention to equate the payment of their women’s and men’s football teams.
Brazil’s female players such as Marta will be paid the same amount as Neymar, Gabriel Jesus and Roberto Firmino.
The federation’s president Rogerio Caboclo said, “The CBF has equaled the prize money and allowances between men’s and women’s football, which means the women players will earn the same as the men,”
He further made it known that the new development will be applied to the teams participating in the Olympics next year as well as the next World Cup tournaments.
Caboclo said, “It will be proportionally the same as what Fifa proposes for women, that is to say, there will be no more gender difference in remuneration between men and women.”
Brazil joins Australia, Norway and New Zealand to be part of the nations who pay their men and women the same amount.
