Spain’s soccer federation has introduced that female and male gamers will obtain equal pay for representing their nation.
The settlement — which covers the following 5 seasons — can even carry equality to the journey, meals and lodging obtainable to Spain’s nationwide groups.
“The bonuses obtained in percentages shall be equalised,” Royal Spanish Soccer Federation (RFEF) mentioned in a assertion on Tuesday.
“Any more, the ladies gamers within the nationwide group can have an advance on bonuses, precisely the identical as the boys’s group,” added federation president Luis Rubiales.
“All gamers can even obtain a share of the sponsorship contracts. I feel it’s troublesome to search out such an entire settlement elsewhere.”
FUTPRO union president Amanda Gutierrez — who represented the ladies gamers within the negotiations — has described it as a “historic day”.
England, Eire, Norway and the US are amongst different international locations which have already reached equal pay agreements with males’s and girls’s soccer groups.
