Frauen und Männer World Cup Vergleich Preisgeld

By Ninian Carter

July 20, 2023 - August 20, 2023 - Obwohl Frauenfussball schnell an Popularität gewinnt, liegt er bei Preisgeld noch ganz stark hinter den Männern.

The 2023 Women’s World Cup, which kicks off in Australia and New Zealand on July 20, is the most anticipated female sporting event ever.

The U.S. is vying to regain the title after winning it the last two times – in 2019 and 2015.

The U.S. also won the championship in 1991 and 1999, back in the days when the women’s game had zero prize money.

Today, it’s a different story, with the 2023 winning female team taking home $10.5 million – $6.2m of which will be divided among the players.

However, despite these improvements, the men’s game pays out around four times as much to the winner – something FIFA president Gianni Infantino wants to address by the next championships in 2026 and 2027.
