Report: U.S. Women’s Soccer Team Lost $27.5 Million Since 2009

The US Women’s Soccer Team lost a total of $27.5 million since 2009, according to US Soccer Federation President Carlos Cordeiro.

Cordeiro shot back against claims by the women’s soccer team that they weren’t being paid as well as the men, simply because they were women. The women’s national team have been in talks with the Soccer Federation, their employers, over equal pay, which they say is “actually about women everywhere being treated respectfully in the workplace.” A lawsuit launched by the women will be heard in May 2020, just weeks before the team will play at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Cordeiro said that it doesn’t matter that the women are more successful worldwide than the men, as they simply do not bring in the same amount of money, and have even lost millions since 2009:

From 2009 through 2019 — a timeframe that includes two Women’s World Cup championships — the Women’s National Team has earned gross revenue of $101.3 million over 238 games, for an average of $425,446 per game, and the Men’s National Team has earned gross revenue of $185.7 million over 191 games, for an average of $972,147 per game. More specifically, WNT games have generated a net profit (ticket revenues minus event expenses) in only two years (2016 and 2017). Across the entire 11-year period, WNT games generated a net loss of $27.5 million.

Molly Levinson, a spokesperson for the women’s team, said that this statement was a “ruse”, and the numbers included were totally “false.”

The women’s soccer team is captained by Megan Rapinoe, a cocky, pink-haired leftist, who famously screeched “I deserve this!” after winning the Women’s World Cup this year. A video of Rapinoe was unearthed before the world cup win where she said that she was “not going to the fucking White House” to be applauded by President Trump, who she clearly detests. The President shot back in a series of tweets you can read below:
