This still does not come close to the men’s winners prize fund in Qatar at $440million.

However, FIFA president Gianni Infantino stated he hopes to equal the prize money between both the men’s and women’s tournaments by the 2027 Women’s World Cup.

FIFA has blamed the unequal prize fund to broadcasters and TV networks for offering significantly less for the women’s tournament’s media rights.

They have further clarified they are doing their bit to fight for equality in the sport and others now need to start doing the same.
