Mainland Metro News | FIFA WWC: Super Falcons to receive $30,000 each for playing… Onome Ebi reveals excitement | All the news you need...

Each player at the 2023 FIFA Women World Cup would be paid $30,000 as the world soccer governing body has set aside $110m as total prize money to the 32 teams participating teams.
Under the new guarantees, each player participating in the World Cup is guaranteed a minimum of $30,000. Players from the winning team will receive $270,000 each.
The minimum guarantee of $30,000 per World Cup player more than doubles what FIFA determined to be the average global salary of paid players ($14,000) in a recent study according to reports by the Equaliser.
The changes from FIFA come following a letter in October that was sent from world players union FIFPro to FIFA president Gianni Infantino asking for “equal framework of regulations and conditions” for the men’s and women’s World Cups, and at least a 30% increase in prize money from the 2019 World Cup.
In a statement issued on Thursday, FIFPro said
“The confirmation of equal conditions and guaranteed per-player performance compensation at next month’s World Cup represents not only the outcome of tremendous global collective action by over 150 national team players, under the umbrella of FIFPRO and its member unions; but a constructive negotiation with FIFA over the past months.
“They have listened to the voice of the players and we have taken steps towards greater gender equity in our game at its highest levels. The legacy of this action is by the players, for the players, of both today and tomorrow.”
Meanwhile Super Falcons defender and captain Onome Ebi has revealed her excitement at participating in her fifth Women World.
The Super Falcons will open their account on July 21 against Olympic champions Canada, while co-hosts Australia will tackle newcomers Ireland in Group. Ebi said the Super Falcons are determined to do more than their round of 16 appearance in 2019.
“2019 was a good and unforgettable experience,” she posted on her facebook page.
“We got to the round of 16, and I was recorded as the only player in Africa, both male/female, to have played in five fifa world cup.
“This year, 2023, we are not only going to set another record, but also we are going to do better.”
