U.S. Soccer’s Coaching Pay Disparity As The Pride Join Movement Away From White Shorts

Written by Oluwaseun Oyediji

United States Women’s National Team (USWNT) head coach Vlatko Andonovski was found to have made only 27% of the salary of his United States Men’s National Team (USMNT) counterpart in U.S. Soccer’s public 501(c)(3) tax filings released this week.

More Details

Andonovski made $446,495 in salary for the fiscal year ending March 2022.

USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter made $1,641,398 as U.S. Soccer’s highest-paid employee during the same fiscal year.

Andonovski’s salary included $50,000 in bonuses, during a span when the USWNT earned bronze at the Tokyo Olympics.


Berhalter’s salary included $300,000 in bonuses as the USMNT qualified for the 2022 World Cup.

While the players of the USWNT have achieved equal pay, the gap in coaching salaries underlines progress still to be made.

Berhalter’s salary likely doesn’t compete with top men’s jobs in Europe, while Andonovski’s is in the upper tier of women’s coaching salaries.


The Orlando Pride revealed a unique adjustment to their 2022-23 “Luna” away kit on Tuesday.

The team will play in black shorts in 2023 to make players more comfortable during their menstrual cycles, moving on from white shorts.

The Pride are the first NWSL team to make a change specifically for period concerns, but they are part of a larger conversation in women’s sports.

Manchester City moved away from white shorts in 2022 for the same reason.

Wimbledon similarly loosened its all-white dress code to allow WTA players to wear colored undershorts in 2022.
