League Was Able To Pay Trinity Above Salary Cap Thanks To Changes In Collective Bargaining Agreement
The league was able to pay her above the base salary by drawing from allocation funds, which allow teams to offer players amounts above the salary cap.
By 2021, the NWSL salary cap was $682,500, not including the $400,000 in allocation money permitted, according to The 18. The new collective bargaining agreement saw the salary cap nearly double to $1.1 million in 2022, with $500,000 in allocation money, the outlet reports.
Those changes to the bargaining agreement increased the maximum salary for $75,000 for most players as well as the minimum pay to $35,000.
Rodman is set to make a $281,000 annual base salary, which puts her at a higher salary that World Cup star and NWSL veteran Megan Rapinoe.
