New Zealand women's football team (The Football Ferns) to receive equal pay

The Football Ferns - New Zealand women's football team - will receive equal pay to the men's team when they represent their country.

And why not? Incidentally: New Zealand Women are currently 20th in the FIFA Women's World Ranking table. New Zealand Men are currently ranked 133.

Whatever the impact on the players, it should be taken as a step in the right direction. Perhaps an incentive to more girls to take part. It's incredible how few international teams are actually doing this in this age of apparent efforts towards removing inequality. Since New Zealand are clearly taking this seriously, lets hope other do too.
