Can FIFA even out men’s and women’s prize money? Yes
In 2019, FIFA paid World Cup winner France $38 million.
Players got about $500,000, so that’s a total of $11.5 million. That’s a little more than 30.2%, a number that would make the U.S. men overturn tables in the boardroom. Under their old CBA, which is still in effect even though it expired at the end of 2018, they would’ve earned a bit more than $26 million, or nearly 70%. The women get just short of 100% when you include the Victory Tour bonus, which is paid on top of their fees for friendlies.
