“The Danish national team refused an increase in bonuses so that the federation could pay the women equally. With success: After the European Championship, the gender pay gap has been eliminated,” as reported in DER SPIEGEL.

During negotiations with the Danish Football Association (DBU) for a new four-year contract, the men’s team insisted that the women’s team should receive equal pay in the future.

Although the DBU had intended to address the gender pay gap from the outset, they proposed taking money from the men and giving it to the women, a solution rejected by both teams. Now, the women’s pay is set to be raised to the same level, along with improved insurance coverage for the female players and a development fund.
