In addition to bringing in more World titles than the men, for the past three years, the US women's soccer team has brought in more revenue at $50.8 million compared to $49.9 million.

Manchin received a letter from West Virginia's women's soccer coach Nikki Izzo-Brown about the equal pay discussion, prompting Manchin to propose the bill. That includes funds that go to host cities, participating local and state organizations, U.S. Soccer, the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football, and the global soccer governing body FIFA. Fans chanted "equal pay" from the stands in France during the post-game celebration. Also, the women's national team made revenue in 2016 where the men made a net loss.

The team's been piling up historic titles, but this parade will also mark another first: In addition to being the second women's team to win back-to-back World Cups, it's the first women's athletic team to be honored with back-to-back ticker-tape parades in the Canyon of Heroes. "They are the best in the world and deserve to be paid accordingly".

While a lawsuit is ongoing in which the USWNT is suing U.S. Soccer over the pay disparity, the fight for equal pay is headed to Capitol Hill.

The U.S. men's team failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, held in Russian Federation, and will attempt to make the field for the 2022 tournament, to be held in Qatar.

The 2026 World Cup is expected to be hosted by Canada, Mexico and the United States as part of a joint bid and will need federal funding. Federal funds would also be withheld from Federation Internationale de Football Association, soccer's worldwide governing body, and from the regional body that administers the World Cup qualifying tournament that includes the U.S.

The total prize money for the 2022 men's World Cup will be $440 million, while the 2019 women's World Cup doled out $30 million in prize money, including $4 million to the winning team. It was the most-viewed match this season and was a 22 percent increase over last year's World Cup men's final between France and Croatia, which averaged 11.44 million. "That's just plain wrong", Manchin stated in a press release. "It was like, this World Cup win is so much more than what was on the field".
