The best women’s soccer players in the world lost in court last week.

According to Sports Illustrated, U.S. District Judge Gary Klausner released an order that sided with the United States Soccer Federation when it comes to the unequal pay allegations brought against the USSF by members of the U.S. women’s national team in a lawsuit filed in March 2019.

The two-time reigning World Cup champions can appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. First, their remaining allegations are scheduled to go to a jury trial June 16. Klausner has ordered the jury to look into the 28 plaintiffs’ allegations of discriminatory working conditions and issues with assorted personnel and support services.
