Watch World Cup Celebration Online

After the USA women's soccer team has won its 4th World Cup Championship, time is way overdue to kick away its grossly unequal pay with the underperforming US men's soccer team.

News 4's John Chandler talks to a young US women's national soccer team fan who calls for equal pay for her favorite players.

"This is how I want my daughters to see what women can do and what women should be", said Gabrielle Blecher, 49, of Brooklyn, a mother of daughters ages 11 and 13, who took a break from her office job along the parade route to watch the festivities.

Pulling all such funding will most likely jeopardize or at the very least severely hinder the ability of the U.S.to host the 2026 World Cup.


A letter from the women's soccer coach at West Virginia University has spurred a politician to act on behalf of the United States women's national team.

The total prize money for the 2022 men's World Cup will be $440 million, while the 2019 women's World Cup doled out $30 million in prize money, including $4 million to the winning team.

In March, all 28 players on the women's team filed a gender discrimination lawsuit against the US Soccer Federation, demanding equal compensation with their male counterparts, who earn much higher base pay than their female counterparts. It will get $4 million for winning the World Cup from Federation Internationale de Football Association, the worldwide soccer governing body.

"I don't think anyone on the team has any interest in lending the platform that we've worked so hard to build, and the things that we fight for, and the way that we live our life ..."


Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Democrat, will then give the players a symbolic key to the city.

A ticker-tape parade will be held in New York City today for the team. The women have won four titles, men none; the women's viewership in the FIFA World Cup final outdrew the men in the United States by over three million ( men 11.4, women 14.3). After touching down at Newark Liberty International Airport on Monday, players shared a toast and sang "We Are the Champions".

Asked by CNN's Anderson Cooper what she would like to say to the American leader, Rapinoe said: "Your message is excluding people". It's unclear if the winning team will be invited by President Donald Trump to visit. The team has accepted an invitation to visit Congress. After teasing him slightly for getting interrupted with chants - "Everybody in the position of power gets booed" - Rapinoe said she was going to endorse Cordeiro.
