While several major football nations (USA, Netherlands, Spain, etc.) have announced that they are offering equal bonuses for both ladies and gentlemen. This will not yet be the case for Belgium.
If the status of the Red Flames has evolved in recent years, with in particular a jersey designed expressly for them, their remuneration too. But next to the stars that are Lukaku, Hazard, De Bruyne or Courtois, …. Wullaert, Cayman (winner of the Champions League) or De Caigny can still wait before seeing their bonuses brought to the same level as those of the Red Devils.
However, the amounts have been revised upwards, we can read in the Flemish press. After the renegotiation with the players’ council. Thus, each victory at the Euro would bring (the exact amount has not been communicated) 1000€ (gross) to each player while they would receive a daily package of 200€ per gathering, estimate our Flemish colleagues.
The amount of the bonus for reaching the quarter-finals and beyond has not been communicated.
“The goal is equality. Women’s football has long been the top priority of the RBFA. That is why we have made great financial efforts in recent years and increased investment in women’s football considerably. Along with this, the amounts of the Red Flames will continue to evolve, up to the level of the Red Devils”, can we read in Nieuwsblad.
