Spain becomes latest to give equal pay to male and female national team footballers

Male and female football players in Spain will earn equal compensation for representing their country, according to the Spanish football organization.

The arrangement, which will last for the next five seasons, will also ensure that Spain’s national teams have equal access to travel, food, and lodging.

The Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) said in a statement on Tuesday that “the incentives obtained in percentages will be equalized.”

“From now on, women’s national team players will receive an advance on bonuses, same like the men’s team,” said federation president Luis Rubiales.

“A portion of the sponsorship contracts will go to each athlete. I believe it would be rare to get such total agreement anywhere else.”

It was a “historic day,” according to FUTPRO president Amanda Gutierrez, who represented the women players in the negotiations.

Other countries that have already negotiated equal wage deals with men’s and women’s football teams include England, Ireland, Norway, and the United States.
