Gender Pay Gap Information

Unlike most other companies, Millwall, similarly to other football clubs, has a large number of more highly-paid male workers, made up of its professional footballers, and consequently the average wage, calculated firstly as a mean hourly rate, is disproportionate but also therefore easily explainable.

The median hourly pay rate average is equal between men and women and more fairly represents the position that exists at Millwall Football Club.

Money received by the players in bonuses over the course of last year, which includes promotion figures, has pushed up the average for men at the club and made bonuses for women look low in comparison.


Our full Gender Pay Gap report is as follows:
