According to Sports Business Journal, the minimum salary of U.S. national team players will be $40,000. The term of the agreement is three years.
The agreement covers 33 players on the U.S. women's national team or in the national team pool. Players have the ability to supplement their salary with compensation through appearances, marketing, coaching and camps in addition to finding other employment in the offseason.
The agreement also covers various issues over marketing rights.
WPS has signed Puma as a national sponsor and is hopeful of adding several other national sponsors before the start of the season.
According to WPS spokesperson Robert Penner, players who have a pre-existing endorsement contract with a manufacturer that has taken out a licensing deal with WPS are able to wear that manufacturer's shoes. All other players will wear Puma shoes.
The agreement paves the way for clubs to finalize agreements with national team players. Up until now, the major signings have all been those of foreign stars.
