Nike is the sponsor of Women Soccer team of the United States. It has released an ad which talks about the gender equality in sports.

Equal Pay!” when Gianni Infantino went on the stage to congratulate the players of the US Women Soccer team. The US Soccer Federation did not comment about the lawsuit when it was asked by the media.

US Soccer Federation said, “The pay for the players depends on the aggregate revenue generated by the team or any other factor apart from their sex”. Jeffrey Kessler, attorney of the women team, said, “It is a specious argument made by the federation”. He also said, “The audited financial statements of the federation revealed that the women team generated more revenue as compared to the men team”. “It is the greatest women soccer team in the history of United States”, he added.
