The United States Women's National Team are once again world champions, winning their fourth World Cup with a 2-0 victory over the Netherlands Sunday.
And now the question is: What comes next?
"Money from FIFA, money from federations," Rapinoe said when asked what the women's game needs to grow. "Money from advertisers, sponsors, rights-holders, TV. All of that. And obviously not just blindly throwing cash at things, but investing in infrastructure, in training programs or academies for women, in coaching for women. All of it."
"The American women should be paid as much as the American men," Bishop said Monday. "The American men are a joke. They can't even qualify for the World Cup, and the women are winning back-to-back."
"The last men's World Cup brought in $4 billion, and the 2015 women's World Cup brought in $78 million," said Cakes. "That's quite a chasm there. So if you're wondering why the women are getting paid less, it's because less money's being made and being brought in."
"If you're gonna tell me that the percentages are that great, then I guess there's not that much more money out there for the women," Bishop responded. "I just think when you compare the American women to the American men, they should be more equal."
