that meme still makes no fucking sense. The revenue of women's world cup soccer isn't even close to that of what the men bring in. The women actually earn a higher total percentage than the men do in terms of revenue and ratings. They should be happy.

"From 2016 to 2018, women’s games generated about $50.8 million in revenue compared with $49.9 million for the men, according to U.S. soccer’s audited financial statements. In 2016, the year after the World Cup, the women generated $1.9 million more than the men. Game revenues are made up mostly of ticket sales. In the last two years, at least, the men’s tally includes appearance fees that opposing teams pay the U.S. for games."

Yeah, first half was like a C- for me. Glad we got a goal but shaky in all facets of the game.

That's not total revenue though, those numbers have been revised to prove a point. Those are more than likely gate revenue numbers. The difference in total amount earned is absurd.

What numbers were revised? Thats ticket sales. Its the only apples to apples revenue comparison. US soccer makes all of its deals as a whole. There are no other "total numbers" . Why are you lying?

For other countries its probably obvious that the men are a bigger draw but the US is the rare case of a major soccer country that is historically awful on the men's side.

Also, whatever argument could be made on behalf of the men's revenue is not going to be because of the USMNT. Its going to be because people want to see other mens teams play. USMNT shouldn't be paid because Ronaldo, Messi, and Pogba are awesome. This isn't boxing. Pay needs to either be based on ticket sales or performance but right now its literally just based on sex.

As the WSJ site is paywalled I am not sure what the ticket revenue is including. Does this only include matches played in the United States or does this include all matches?

If it includes non-domestic played games the revenue would be skewed due to the lack of World Cup qualification for the men.

^My thought too. I hope we win the tournament. We'll need the extra practice at the Confederations Cup, if we haven't been eliminated from WCQ by then.

TBH, this is the point that is more important to me than total revenue. It is the fact that the competition is much higher for the men than the women. They are in a league that it is on a completely different level. Men's Soccer is the biggest sport in the world, and they are playing on the biggest stage against the top athletes in the world. I know that it may be hard to understand being an American and surrounded by NBA and NFL, but that is the number one sport in pretty much every other continent than north america.

The precedent here is pretty strong. For example, the German Bundesliga has three competitive leagues, but the players on the worst team in the first league will typically make much more than the players from the best team in the second or third league. It is due to the overall competition, talent, and skill required to play at that level.

This is only really an issue because people are now going across the board demanding equal pay and opportunity between men and women. Fortunately, this movement has brought awareness to some alarming issues such as pitiful maternity leave for employees or women not getting hired because they are early thirties newly weds. However, in a lot of cases, such as Brie Larson and her press tour stunt, this puts hard working men at an unfair disadvantage simply because they were born a man.

So the overall assumption is it will be Mexico vs the US/Jamaica in Finals right.
