Deakin University’s Professor David Shilbury says the success of the women’s Australian Football League was a major driver of the pay-parity deal for the national women’s soccer team. He notes that negotiations over new pay deals for female cricketers and soccer players only made progress following the AFLW’s launch in 2017, which provided those sports with competition for female athletes.
