Late Friday night in Australia – or early Friday morning in Canada – the players association released a statement that they had reached an agreement on compensation for 2023 and the Women’s World Cup.

The statement confirmed the deal was signed and agreed upon on Monday, July 24, but the players are not happy with the lack of details.

The Women’s National Team began the World Cup without a CBA deal with Canada Soccer. The players stated due to the ongoing financial issues they have been forced to decide between compensation and resources for proper training camps.

Before the tournament, it got to a point where Christine Sinclair made a statement saying the players were contemplating not getting on the plane to Australia.

Before Canada faced Nigeria in their opening group stage match at the World Cup, Sinclair confirmed at the MD-1 press conference a deal was on the verge of being signed.

Here’s the full statement from the players of the women’s national team:

The players stated this isn’t over, and that they will continue to work with the men on a CBA that pays them both equally. Canada faces Australia on July 31st with a chance to advance to the knockout stage.
