On June 30, the United States Women’s National Team shut out Germany in the semifinals of the World Cup on national television in front of millions of viewers. Despite this victory, some of their players struggle so much financially, they are forced to live with volunteers.

Morgan Brian and Meghan Klingenberg are both living with a very helpful and famous volunteer as part of their clubs “host family program,” former NBA coach and current ESPN analyst Jeff Van Gundy.

When the women are not playing for the U.S. in international tournaments, they play with club teams throughout the world. Brian and Klingenberg both play for the Houston Dash in the National Women’s Soccer League.

Although the women’s national team has made some players household names over the years; Mia Hamm, Julie Foudy, and Abby Wambach to name a few, most do not become big names. The pay in many women’s leagues is not enough for the players to be financially stable. That is why clubs like Houston started the “host family program.” The program gives players a place to live while they train and play with their club, without the players having to worry about rent and food.

“The example they set and also for me having been in the NBA for a long time, they just have a different perspective because they’ve never had it easy. And it’s interesting to watch them. They’re just really excited about the opportunities and how they go about it is impressive,”  Van Gundy said to USA Today.

The USA National team moves on to play in the World Cup Final on Sunday July 5, at 7 p.m. They play the winner of Japan vs. England. Japan defeated the USA in the last World Cup Final on a penalty shootout.
