Owls chief executive officer Katrien Meire said: “As one of the few female football CEOs in office, I am pleased that the publication of this report will start increasing awareness of the importance of equal pay.
“As a club we want to endorse salary equality whilst ensuring pathways exist for women through mid-range and senior management roles. However, we also believe that opportunity and remuneration should be based on ability and merit.
“In a professional male football club figures will always be skewed but away from the field we are committed to parity irrespective of gender.
“Having conducted an extensive internal process to arrive at our results, once player related payments and bonuses were subtracted, a tangible gender pay gap remained.
“Overall, I am confident that throughout the club, we have dedicated, talented staff who individually and collectively will be given every chance to achieve their career ambitions at Sheffield Wednesday.”
