US Soccer Fans Shout ‘F**k Trump’ And ‘Equal Pay’ After World Cup Win

Following the United States' 2-0 victory over the Netherlands in the final match of the Women's World Cup on Sunday, a group of American soccer fans in France changed "Fuck Trump" during a live television broadcast by Fox News

Meanwhile, chants of "equal pay" could be heard from the stands in Lyon, France, as a crowd booed FIFA President Gianni Infantino over the disparity in pay between male and female soccer players. 

Let's take a look at the numbers (via the Federalist Papers).

"When the United States Women’s Team defeated Japan in the 2015 World Cup the entire tournament generated around $37 million in revenue and the players were paid 13 percent.

In the 2010 Men’s World Cup in South Africa the tournament generated around $4 billion in revenue and the men were paid 9 percent.

The most recent Men’s World Cup in Russia generated around $6 billion in revenue and the men got around 7 percent of that.

The Women’s World Cup in 2019 was expected to net around $131 million in revenue, a significant increase but not near what the men make."

Economics major Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez weighs in: 

Which is exactly what happened - as Infantino announced that the governing body would double the prize money for the 2023 Women's World Cup, according to CNNhowever that's not good enough for co-captain Megan Rapinoe, who said "It certainly is not fair … We should double it now and use that number to double it or quadruple it for the next time."
