Wales’s men’s and women’s football teams to get equal pay after deal agreed

Players for Wales’s men’s and women’s football teams will be paid the same for playing for their country after a deal was struck by Wales’s governing body.

The agreement with the Football Association of Wales (FAW) comes into effect immediately and will cover up to the 2026 Fifa men’s World Cup and the women’s tournament a year later.

It will mean a 25% pay cut for the men’s team to enable a rise of the same amount for the women’s side.
