Womens soccer is far less profitable than mens soccer and the men have to actually play against decent teams..he points this out at the end but it also makes his video useless. Also they are not the best in the world...put them up against the mens soccer team and youll find out..Wimbeldon now pays the womens winner the same as the mens but they only play first to 2 sets in womens tennis the men play first to three. In 2019 the mens final lasted 4 hours 57 minutes...the womens..56minutes. How is that fair and equal? not to mention the revenue the mens game brings in compared to the womens. I say stop segregating sports into mens and womens and then we will have true equality.

My wife said the other day, following me complaining about the millionair soccer twats complainimng about not being able to play, sports should not be paid for, end of story. And I must say I agree. If you want to compete, do that in your free time, you may get certain benefits from your employer like extra (unpaid) time off for special events but that should be pretty much it.

You want to play for your national team or compete in the olympics etc? You get travel and accommodation (All Inclusive) paid by the respective sports body.

Problem solved.

Where do sports companies get money to pay for travel and accomodations if they arn't selling tickets?

 

Merch? Could work, almost everyone has a jersey of some kind. But not everyone updates theirs every season.

 

The other issue is that sponsors will be much less abundant because they may not have a strong ROI.

 

I agree we shouldn't pay for sports. And I agree in some sports athletes are paid way too much,  But the question is how do you make that a reality?

Television rights.

 

Just one example, just for Sunday television rights in 2019, The National Football League got $1 billion from CBS, $1.1 billion from Fox and $950 million from NBC.

Why companies? One could make that clubs.
One could still sell tickets. Why not?
Is merchandise needed? I think not apart from maybe national and team flags and maybe some clothing. Even if it is what would stop anyone from selling it, the income flows into the system as outlined below.

 

No sponsors like we have them today needed in this system. Club memberships and a voluntary contribution on the income tax return could take care of that (individuals not paying for "their" team but into a pool that covers the respective discipline and is equally distributed). Then the sport will be regulated by what the people are willing to payfor it. Also television rights payments go to the pool. 

Also athletes that want to play for a certain regional team or compete for a club or country must have been born in the same area or country.

 

Simple really.

my answer blackswordsman was in the post you replied to 'just like the irish GAA..top athletes but an amateur sport..' just like the GAA does it. Amateur sport with one of the largest staduims in europe..ok its a special example but it can work..
