USA women to make more from men's World Cup than 2019 win

The United States women's national team will make at least three times more from the men's World Cup than they received for winning the 2019 women's tournament, thanks to a new deal to split World Cup earnings.

A 1-0 win by the men's team over Iran on Tuesday night increased their World Cup prize money to approximately $380,000 for each player in the squad.

The same applies to players on the US roster for the 2023 Women's World Cup because of the new collective bargaining agreements between the United States Soccer Federation and the men's and women's unions.

Under those deals, 90% of the World Cup prize money paid by world soccer body FIFA to the USSF will be pooled and shared equally between the players on the 2022 men's World Cup roster and the 2023 Women's World Cup roster.

Men's rosters were increased to 26 this year, and the size of rosters for next year's Women's World Cup currently is listed as 23 in FIFA's regulations. If women's rosters also are increased to 26 per squad, the prize money share for each player would come to $380,769.

Players on the US women's team each received a $110,000 bonus for winning the 2019 World Cup.

FIFA is awarding $440 million in prize money to the 32 nations at this year's World Cup. It awarded $30 million to the 24 teams at the 2019 Women's World Cup.
