Lewes FC hope their decision to pay male and female players equally will change the face of football.

The Sussex side hit the headlines last week after becoming the first professional club in the world to introduce equal pay for both its men’s and women’s teams.

Lewes have been contacted by sides from all over the world in the wake of their landmark announcement and director Jackie Agnew hopes more clubs will follow their lead.
“What it basically means is we’re going to have pay parity here,” Agnew told Tuesday’s Sportswomen show on Sky Sports News.

“We’re going to have a level playing field for our women and the pay parity will be equal to what our men’s budget is at the moment.

“Pay parity comes from three things – private donors, sponsorships and player ownerships and we have secured our budget for the next three years to have pay parity at this football club.

“This is a good blueprint to have a look at and we are very open for any club to have a chat with us about how we did this and how we are doing this.

“What we want to try and do is to open this up and try and smash a door down if you like, and say to other clubs you should really be valuing your women’s players equally to your men.”

The women’s side operate at a much higher level compared to their male counterparts, playing in the third tier of women’s football in the Premier League Southern Division.

As part of their Equality FC campaign, Lewes will have the same team budget and the same facilities for both their men’s and women’s teams.

Women’s team manager John Donoghue said: “I think it’s great that the club has been at the forefront because someone had to step up and say ‘We are hoping to do this because it is right’ and Lewes have done that.”Euro Soccer Bonus
