The growth of fans in women's football goes beyond the States, and according to the BBC, the semi-final between USA and England had the biggest audience of the year for a live event, besides registering two-time more viewers than previous tournaments.
In the Netherlands, the 2019 France World Cup final was the most-watched game since the men's semi-final against Argentina in Brazil 2014.
The market rate of the USWNT suggests that there shouldn't be such a large inequality in terms of the salaries earned by the Men's and the Women's teams, as their growth means more revenue for US Soccer.
The USWNT, the world champions, are one of the buggests attractions in women's football. The US men's team didn't qualify for the 2018 World Cup, failed to defend its Gold Cup title on the same day the girls won their fourth championship...
