The winning team of FIFA Football World Cup 2022 will earn 42 million dollars for their football federation.
According to the American news agency Associated Press, the losing team in the final between Argentina and France will receive 30 million dollars from FIFA’s 440 million dollar prize fund.
When France won the 2018 World Cup, its football federation received $38 million from FIFA’s $400 million prize fund.
All this prize money is not distributed among players, but they are expected to get a good portion of it.
According to the French sports newspaper l’equipe, French players like Kylian Mbappe are on the list who will be given a bonus of 586,000 dollars by their federation for winning the final.
The federation of each team playing this year’s World Cup will receive a prize money of at least 9 million dollars and 1.5 million dollars separately for the expenses of preparations for the tournament.
The third-placed Croatia in the tournament will receive $27 million in prize money, while the fourth-placed team of Morocco will receive $25 million.
FIFA’s total revenue over the past four years has been $7.5 billion, with a large portion coming from broadcast and sponsorship deals.
