How much revenue does the Women's World Cup make compared to the Men's league ?
and why if not close they complain about not making the same money if not bringing the same rates of money to the sport as WNBA league is doing

The 2015 Women's World Cup brought in almost $73 million, of which the players got 13%.
The 2010 Men's World Cup in South Africa made almost $4 billion, of which 9% went to the players.
The men's World Cup in Russia generated over $6 billion in revenue,
this Women's World Cup is expected to earn $131 million for the full four-year cycle 2019-22
Case ******* closed.
The women get paid far less than male players do. That fact is not changed by putting a percentage of revenue spin on it.
Their prize money is a lot less than the mens. I do think its odd that they ask for completely equal pay to men considering their game is definitely still lower quality and it also wouldnt be economically viable, but they are also definitely underpaid. it is something like £18,000 is an average annual salary for women playing in the top English division. i'd assume some of them probably have second jobs. the viewerships are less so they cant afford it but clubs owners are simply not as interested because mens game is where the money is.

If you go off percentages, the women are getting ripped off. The total prize money offered by FIFA for the tournament was US$15 million which represents 2.6% of the total prize money for the 2014 Men's World Cup ($576 million).The United States, received $2 million representing 5.7% of the amount received by Germany for winning the 2014 Men's World Cup ($35 million).
Average attendance in 2015 was just over 26,000 per match. In 2014 the average attendance was just over 53,000 which means the women were drawing just shy of half of what the men were getting. Not saying the women should be getting half of the prize money that the men got, but they got significantly less.
