The women had good reason again to celebrate the support of 21,792 chilled fans at Pratt & Whitney Stadium, as they continued to make their case against U.S. Soccer in a suit filed before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, demanding similar compensation, bonuses and per diem as the men’s national team players.
