The U.S. Soccer Federation and the U.S. women’s national soccer team have reached a historic deal to ensure equal pay with the men’s national team.

“This is a truly historic moment,” U.S. Soccer President Cindy Parlow Cone said. “These agreements have changed the game forever here in the United States and have the potential to change the game around the world.”

The game-changing agreement, which lasts through 2028, U.S. Soccer will become “the first Federation in the world to equalize FIFA World Cup prize money.”

In 2019, 28 members of the women’s team filed a lawsuit against the federation for gender discrimination and equal pay.

“I am feeling extreme pride,” Becky Sauerbrunn, the U.S. Women’s National Team defender, said in an interview with NBC’s TODAY. “To be able to say finally, equal pay for equal work feels very, very good.”
