Listen to this week's episode of On the Ball or read the details under the podcast:

Banyana Banyana recently reached the Africa Cup of Nations final where they lost on penalties to Nigeria. In the process, they qualified for next year's FIFA Women's Wolrd Cup.

However, the women's team earns only a fraction of what their male counterparts get.  

In official matches, Bafana players earn as bonuses‚ above their salaries‚ as high as R60‚000 for a win‚ R40‚000 for a draw and nothing for a defeat, but this cannot be compared to Banyana players who have been rewarded far less than that in their international matches.

Banyana are believed to earn R5,000 per match through their salaries.

What are your thoughts on the pay gap?
