Norway’s historic pay deal for women’s team shows it can be done
A standard has been set. Last week the Norwegian football association announced that their women’s national team will now be paid the same as their men’s side. They are the first national FA to have devised an equal pay deal, just a few months after Lewes vowed to do the same for their semi-professional players at The Dripping Pan. This latest deal is especially significant, coming at a time when women’s national teams are standing up and demanding more from the shirt they pull on, and the countries they represent on the international stage.
