The South African Women’s World Cup team scores a deal after taking a stance against pay disparities between men’s and women’s soccer.

A series of unfair happenings led the team to stick it to the South African Soccer Association. In addition to lower pay, contract issues, and the location of their send-off game drove the 23-player team to sit out during its most recent game. The Association’s President Danny Jordaan, said, “Clearly, the issue of contract negotiations started too late.” According to the Associated Press, the South African team had yet to receive any contractual agreement about the amount of money they would receive for representing their country in the World Cup to be held in Australia and New Zealand. The outlet reported the stadium for the team’s send-off was too small. South Africa’s men’s World Cup team would never be asked to play at the lesser-known venue, according to the women’s team.
