The president of the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF), Rogério Caboclo, reported this Wednesday that the value of the per diem or allowances received by men and women who are summoned to play in the national teams has been equated .
” There are no more gender differences. The CBF treats men and women equally, ” Caboclo said at a press conference. The leader reported that “since March of this year,” the CBF equaled the value of the allowances and now women “earn the same” as men “during the call and for the period they are with the national team.”
He also indicated that the premiums in the event of a good campaign in the Tokyo Olympic Games will also be the same and that in the next World Cup in each category, the amount will be proportional, according to the values distributed by FIFA .
The announcement came during the introduction of Aline Pellegrino and Duda Luizelli as the new CBF women’s soccer coordinators . Pellegrino, a former defender of the national team, will assume a newly created position, that of coordinator of women’s competitions of the entity, with the mission of supervising and developing women’s soccer tournaments in the country.
“It is a gigantic challenge, but I think the best way to start is by being close to the federations and understanding how they see the development of women’s football and at what moment they are,” she said at the event.
Luizelli will be the coordinator of the three women’s soccer teams -absoluta, Sub’20 and Sub’17-, a position previously held by a man, Marco Aurélio Cunha. The former player also put the accent on promoting the lower categories. “We know the importance of minors for Brazil to one day be the best in the world in women’s football,” he said.
The head coach of the main team, Sweden’s Pia Sundhage, promised to do her best to make soccer more and more professional among women . “I hope everyone can see the smile in my eyes. That is historic. I am very grateful,” she said.
