Cricket Australia Gives Women Substantial Pay Bump In Big Lift For Women, Sport
Published May 22, 2013
MARKETABLE STAR: Also in Sydney, Chloe Saltau reported cricket "will still have to share superstar Ellyse Perry, but stands a much greater chance of keeping her." Perry, who has won multiple World Cups and is "one of the most marketable female athletes in the land," stands to earn at least A$80,000 from cricket next year, before personal endorsements. Cricket Australia is "set to top up her playing contract and tour payments with fees for extra promotional work from a separate marketing pool." Perry said that she "believes the ability to make a proper living from cricket will make the summer game more appealing to young women in her position." Perry: ''Looking at women's sport as a viable career option it's a really positive step forward'' (THE AGE, 5/22).
