The women’s team brings huge revenues – and trophies – for US Soccer. But the federation knows its coach is unlikely to be tempted to go elsewhere
Jill Ellis, the manager of the US women’s national team, has been getting results. She led the USA to a spectacular Women’s World Cup victory in 2015 – which turned out to be very lucrative for her bosses at the US Soccer Federation – and just recently, the US women qualified with ease for this summer’s tournament in France.
But the financial rewards for her success have been limited, at least compared to her male colleagues who have achieved far less. According to US Soccer’s newly filed public financial disclosure, Ellis was paid less than four different coaches who worked on the US men’s failed qualifying campaigns for the 2018 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics, including two youth coaches.
