Wales women and men footballers will be paid equally for the first time, after a landmark agreement was reached with the Football Association of Wales, as announced on Wednesday, 18 January 2023.

Both the senior internationals will now receive equal remuneration for representing their country and the same percentage of the prize money that will be distributed by UEFA and FIFA at major finals.

 

The landmark agreement is set to cover periods up to and including the 2027 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Both camps have released a joint statement in response to the announcement: “Together Stronger has been the mantra across the Cymru national teams for us all, both on and off the pitch as we look to put Wales on the world stage.

“As part of the FAW’s strive towards equality, we are now proud to announce that together, our men’s and women’s teams have agreed to an equal pay structure for future international matches.

“We hope that this will allow future generations of boys and girls to see that there is equality across Welsh international football, which is important for society as a whole.

“With this agreement in place, we will now look ahead to the UEFA Euro 2024 and 2025 qualifying campaigns, as we aim to see further success across both our senior teams in the near future.”
