FIFA president Gianni Infantino says doubling the total prize money for women's World Cup teams to $30 million US is progress. However, the total prize money will be $440 million for the men's teams at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
The FIFA council on Friday ratified the financial package for the 2019 Women's World Cup in France, increasing the total prize money from $15 million won by the U.S. women at the 2015 World Cup. Several players' unions involving the U.S., Australia, Norway, Sweden and New Zealand raised concerns about the inequities to the world soccer governing body ahead of the council decision.

Good news for 15-tear-old boys. Since you play better than women's team, you are entitled to millions. As well as press & promotionals, because, equality.
