Pay parity deal for Football Ferns and All Whites

Pay parity deal for Football Ferns and All Whites

This new agreement is unlikely to make a massive difference financially to female footballers in New Zealand, as the men's side are ranked 133rd in the world, and earn only a fraction of the bigger, more famous worldwide football teams like England.

New Zealand is not the first country to implement pay parity for its footballers with Norway leading the way with a pay parity deal in October past year.

They will also enjoy the same travel arrangements, meaning women will no longer have to fly economy to tournaments while male players enjoy business class.

"No matter who you are, whatever gender, when you pull on a New Zealand football shirt you're entitled to the same treatment and respect no matter what".

"[The Football Ferns] are role models for the 30,000 female players throughout our country", Martin said. "It is important to recognise their contribution and form a revised agreement alongside the PFA", he adds.

"This has been a positive negotiation and I would like to thank the PFA for the manner in which these discussions have taken place".

Ngata adds "we are delighted to have a combined agreement across our All Whites and Football Ferns".

English club Lewes FC became the first professional or semi-professional team to have pay parity a year ago, while England's Football Association pledged to reduce the gender pay gap among club staff.

"We are confident this will add positive benefits to our elite programmes, not just for today's players but for those of tomorrow", former All White and the NZPFA Chief Executive Harry Ngata said.

Martin said it is "an exciting time for football in this country".

In practical terms, the New Zealand deal means women will receive the same match payments, equal fees on image rights and a similar proportion of tournament prize money.

One of the world's highest paid footballers, Brazilian forward Neymar, will earn $44.6 million (37.4 million EUR) playing for French club Paris Saint Germain in the 2017-18 season alone.
