(ANSA -AFP) – Rome, August 30 – The Irish football revolution involves the reservation of male and female players to national teams.
Players representing the senior women’s and men’s teams of the Republic of Ireland will receive the same match bonuses that will take effect immediately, as announced by the Irish Football Federation, as part of the Irish Sports Deal.
To reach this agreement, the men’s team has agreed to reduce the amount of money the players receive for each match, so the federation uses this amount to increase the salaries paid to the players.
England, Brazil, Australia, Norway and New Zealand have publicly pledged to pay both men and women in international competitions. “This is a great day for Irish football,” said Irish football captain Katie McCabe. “We have taken a big step with this deal and shown the world what we can achieve with unity by giving international players the same opportunities,” he said. Everton defender Seamus Coleman (59 times) said the Irish players were happy to help make the deal possible. “We are happy to do everything possible to ensure that our international players receive justice, and we are fully committed to doing all we can to achieve this together,” Coleman said.
