In addition to bringing in more World titles than the men, for the past three years, the US women's soccer team has brought in more revenue at $50.8 million compared to $49.9 million.

U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, a Democrat, introduced a bill Tuesday that would bar federal funding for the men's 2026 World Cup until the U.S. Soccer Federation provides equal pay to the women's and men's teams.

"I received a letter from Coach Izzo-Brown highlighting her worries that women on the WVU Women's Soccer Team could one day make the USA women's team and not get paid the same as the men's team".

The women's team will be regaled in the same fashion as other heroes and winners, such as Nelson Mandela in 1990, the 1969 World Series champion Mets and the New York Giants team that captured Super Bowl XLII in 2008, according to the Alliance for Downtown New York, a commercial advocacy, research, and information group.

It was four years ago to the day that crowds tossed heaps of confetti in the city to celebrate the team and its 2015 Women's World Cup title.

The champs notched a 2-0 win over the Netherlands in the finals on Sunday - and have been relishing the victory across the Big Apple since arriving on Monday. "These athletes generate more revenue and garner higher TV ratings, but get paid less simply because they are women". Arguably, compared to the men, the women were actually grossly overpaid. Female players, though, appeared to need to "turn in consistently outstanding performances on the world stage" to keep up in pay with their male counterparts, and there was "still a massive gap between men's and women's World Cup bonuses", The Post wrote. Forbes estimates that the 2018 men's World Cup in Russian Federation brought in $6 billion in revenue compared to an expected total of $131 million for this year's tournament in France.

The bill calls for the cutting of any funding that would be used to support the World Cup, including "host cities, participating local and state organizations, the U.S. Soccer Federation, Concacaf and FIFA". That's just plain wrong. At the final whistle of the final game of the tournament in Lyon, France, fans chanted "Equal Pay!"
