The proposed $24 million equal pay settlement between the US women’s national team players and the US Soccer Federation cialis order has been given a preliminary thumbs up by a federal judge, who scheduled a December 5 hearing for final approval.

The settlement agreed in February brought to an end, a protracted legal dispute between the two parties when US Soccer agreed to pay a lump sum in back pay to the players, to be split into individual amounts

In addition, the settlement called for the federation to establish a fund of $2 million to benefit the players in their post-football careers and charitable efforts aimed at growing the sport.
