The bill would pull federal funding from the 2026 men's World Cup that is used to support host cities and the sport's governing bodies involved in the tournament. Following the team's triumph at the 2019 Women's World Cup with a 2-0 win over the Netherlands on Sunday, the USWNT players will be honored in a parade up the Canyon of Heroes.

Sunday's win marked the fourth time the United States team has won the Women's World Cup, two more than any other national team.

The United States is scheduled to host the 2026 men's World Cup in conjunction with Mexico and Canada.

The United States women's soccer team will get its well-deserved heroes' welcome back to the States on Wednesday morning.

"I received a letter from Coach Izzo-Brown highlighting her worries that women on the WVU Women's Soccer Team could one day make the USA women's team and not get paid the same as the men's team".

He presented his bill on Tuesday after reading a concerned letter from the women's soccer coach at West Virginia University, Nikki Izzo-Brown. 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 worldwide soccer governing body FIFA.

From a chant by fans in a stadium in France, "Equal pay!" is now the essence of a bill introduced by Sen. "That's just plain wrong". "So I think in a lot of ways, this team has been, I guess you could call it, single destiny with this fight for equal pay".

The Mountaineers' head coach for almost a quarter century, Nikki Izzo-Brown wrote the missive to senator Joe Manchin following the USWNT's fourth World Cup title, and Manchin is taking a political step in response. Also, the women's national team made revenue in 2016 where the men made a net loss. In the middle of the team dominating the World Cup, the federation and USWNT agreed to take the lawsuit to mediation. 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.

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.
