Second NCAA gender equity report shows spending disparities

Posted at 11:29 AM, Oct 27, 2021

The NCAA has fallen short of upholding its commitment to gender equity, spending more on male athletes on average than female ones.

That's according to a second report by a law firm, which released its 153-page report Tuesday night.

The report includes a series of recommendations to improve the gap among all sports tournaments, going beyond the first set of recommendations regarding men’s and women’s basketball tournaments.

Spending per Division I and national championship participants, excluding basketball, was about $1,700 less for women than men.
