    Human Typo Prestigious

    I know the USWNT’s CONCACAF competition is not the best besides Canada but my god Tobin. This goal is nasty.

    I’m looking forward to the inevitable USA v Canada/Mexico in the knockout bracket

    I don't even know if it is actually a goal because the ball might just go out as well. Either way, there is absolutely nothing nasty about it.

    where would i be if i was my brain Supporter

    This whole equal pay is getting really gross.

    But isn't the Women's World Cup the prime tournament/event in women's soccer whereas the mens would probably be UEFA CL?

    That's a really good question. It would be really interesting to see what the advertisement and sponsorship revenue is between those two competitions.

    So assuming that this weekend...

    I just did a quick Google search. I don't have hard evidence or sources to back this up, but the 2018 World Cup generated around $6.11 billion (5.42 billion Euros) in revenue. The 2017/18 UEFA Champions League generated $2.28 billion (2.11 billion Euros) in revenue. If you multiply that by 4 years to account for 1 world cup cycle (and round the numbers a bit), that's...

    $6.11B World Cup revenue v $10B UEFA Champions League revenue every 4 years.

    Your argument is spot on, @bobby_runs

    World Cup + Qualifying + Regional (euros/gold cup/etc) is probably higher.

    That's true. You can't compare the two without counting in the qualifiers and respective tournaments. I guess for me I never realized just how financially lucrative the Champions League is. I know how important it's been for the club I support, but over $2B annually in revenue is astounding.

    After a terrible few days for the federation, Carlos Cordeiro has stepped down as president of US Soccer.

    I’ve been rewatching highlights of the USWNT from last year’s World Cup. Still bummed they won’t have any matches until the fall at the earliest.

    This will be a lot of fun.

    Also the NWSLPA was involved in this and worked to guaranteed contracts and health insurance so it sounds like they will all be on board. Not sure about the USWNT players though. There was a report the other day that said they may not participate but then the USWNTPA Twitter account said the report was not true. So we’ll see.
