FIFA Addresses World Cup Prize Money Gap
Written by Oluwaseun Oyediji
FIFA is increasing the prize money for the 2023 Women’s World Cup by 300%, with equal prize money a possibility in 2027.
Prize money will increase from $30 million in 2019 to $150 million total. The 2022 men’s World Cup had a payout of $440 million.
The announcement came after a group of players from 25 women’s national teams lobbied with global union FIFPRO to push FIFA for equal pay.
FIFA president Gianni Infantino placed some of the blame on broadcasters, saying bids for the women’s tournament were too low to keep up with the men’s.
FIFA also walked back its planned partnership with Visit Saudi, the official Saudi Arabian tourism board, after a wave of public backlash.
Infantino called the uproar a “double standard” in addressing the partnership.
“The importance of having black hair/makeup artists at shoots and events is KEY and should be an absolute necessity in 2023. Thank you Angel City.”
