ZURICH: ‘FIFA’ to distribute $209 M to clubs with World Cup players.
Regardless of how many minutes they played during the World Cup, everyone of the 837 football players will receive a daily wage of $10,950 from FIFA.
The money will be given to 440 clubs from 51 different nations whose members participated in the competition in November and December of last year, which Argentina won.
The sum for each player is divided up and given to the club or clubs that he or she had a registration with during the two years prior to the Qatar Finals.
Over the $8,530 FIFA paid each player at the World Cup in Russia in 2018, this is an increase.
With a combined sum of $37,713,297, a total of 46 English teams will be the largest recipients in Qatar, followed by clubs from Spain, Germany, Italy, and France.
A total of $4,596,445 will be given to Manchester City, followed by Barcelona ($4,538,955) and Bayern Munich ($4,331,809) as the clubs receiving the highest single-club payments.
The European Club Association and FIFA reached a deal earlier this year that will see $355 million allocated to clubs as part of the programme for the 2026 and 2030 World Cups.
