Men football teams usually take higher wages than the females but Brazil’s football federation has announced that equal pay would now be given for men and women’s football teams.

“The CBF has equaled the prize money and allowances between men’s and women’s football, which means the women players will earn the same as the men,” said the federation’s president Rogerio Caboclo in a Wednesday statement.

“It will be proportionally the same as what Fifa proposes for women, that is to say, there will be no more gender difference in remuneration between men and women,” Caboclo added.

It will be applied to the teams participating in the Olympics next year as well as the next World Cup tournaments.’

Brazil’s football association CBF said its decision was first communicated to the women’s team and their Swedish coach Pia Sundhage in March.

“This is historic. Being a part of this is very special, I’m very grateful,” said Sundhage, who also welcomed the news that for the first time a woman, Duda Luizelli, has been put in charge of coordinating the national women’s team.

Countries such as Australia, Norway, and New Zealand have also implemented this policy in time past.
