Sinclair says deal has been done between players and Canada Soccer ahead of World Cup


Deal on equal pay ‘done’, Canada captain Christine Sinclair says ahead of World Cup

Christine Sinclair said that a deal on equal pay between the Canada men’s and women’s national teams was “done” just as the World Cup kicks off.

Canada captain Sinclair said her team’s pay equity battle with Canada Soccer was all but resolved and praised Janine Beckie, who is sidelined with a torn ACL, for handling negotiations so the players could focus on the tournament.

The Women’s World Cup is getting $150 million in prize money from FIFA, a threefold increase over 2019, but well shy of the $440 million the men received last year in Qatar.
