A kick to the gender difference. Revolution in the world of football in Ireland in relation to the salaries set aside for men and women players in the respective national teams. For the first time, players representing the senior men’s and women’s teams of the Republic of Ireland will receive ‘the same international match bonus that will take effect immediately as part of a groundbreaking deal’. To reach this fair deal, the men’s team agreed to reduce the amount of money players receive per game, so the good news is that the federation is using that money to increase the salaries of female players. The new salary will take effect soon, and players will receive a € 500 increase when Ireland face Portugal on Wednesday in Estadio Algarve. Prior to Ireland, England, Brazil, Australia, Norway and New Zealand were among the countries that had publicly promised equal pay for men and women in international competitions.
“This is a great day for Irish football, and it’s a day in the history books,” said Irish football captain Katie McCabe. “We have taken a big step forward with this deal, offering international players the same opportunities and showing the world what we can do in unity,” he said, endorsing the long struggle.Equal pay Launched in 2017. Everton defender Seamus Coleman said: “We are delighted to do everything possible to ensure that our international players are treated fairly and that we are fully committed to achieving this goal together.”
