On May 18 local time, the American Football Association and the women's and men's national teams announced a historic collective bargaining agreement to narrow the gender gap and ensure that every player, both men and women, can receive equal pay. According to the terms of the agreement, the world cup bonus will be jointly controlled by the men's and women's football teams and equally distributed to all players, which is the first time in the world football association. In addition, the men's and women's football teams will share equally all the income earned by the American Football Association in business and events. The agreement will continue until 2028, the Football Association said in a statement.
