What the US soccer equal pay case means for sports
In the last five years there have been more initiatives to support female athletes. Visa signed a groundbreaking deal with US Soccer Association in 2019 that allocated over 50% of the funds to the women’s team. This created media coverage and discussion about the investment into female sports. Such initiatives are important to create debate and raise questions on equality issues. They also empower athletes to use their positions to pursue greater equality.
