As Megan Rapinoe brings the issue of equality of pay for female athletes front and center since these female athletes are bringing in more revenues (sometimes more than that of male athletes), here are some suggestions for negotiation:
- have a floor for compensation from all broadcasting rights (revenue from broadcasting is usually evenly divided among all teams).
- in addition to revenue from broadcasting rights, additional compensation may come from ticket sales (each home player would get a negotiated and agreed upon percentage of the ticket sales).
- The suggestions above are very fair, but may and may not necessarily result in higher pay or equal pay for female athletes as that of male’s teams because much will depend on how much ticket sales there will be.
