Football Association of Wales agrees for Equal Pay between Men and Women

The Football Association of Wales (FAW) has made history by becoming the first national governing body of football in the United Kingdom to agree to equal pay for both men and women. This landmark decision was announced on February 4th, 2021 and is a significant step forward in the fight for gender equality in sport.

The decision was made after a meeting between the FAW and the Welsh National Women’s team, who had been campaigning for equal pay for several years. The team had been receiving significantly less pay than their male counterparts and had been calling for the FAW to address this issue. The decision to agree to equal pay is a major victory for the team and for women’s football in Wales.

The FAW has agreed to implement equal pay for both men and women in all aspects of the game, including match fees, bonuses, and image rights. This means that both the men’s and women’s national teams will receive the same amount of money for representing their country. The decision also applies to all other teams under the FAW’s jurisdiction, including youth teams and semi-professional teams.
