Three days before the start of the Women’s World Cup, the Australian women’s football team demanded the same prize money as the men’s footballers. FIFA has decided to increase the prize money for women footballers before the start of the 2023 World Cup.
Gianni Infantino says,
We are moving in the right direction. Before I became FIFA president, the prize money was 15 million. Now it has increased to 150 million. I am very happy about this. We are in consultation with the association. Footballers are paid by the federation and the associations must pay the relevant amount to their players.
