With the Qatar World Cup approaching, FIFA has announced the total prize money for the 2022 World Cup, which will allocate $1 billion to be distributed to football associations around the world who are eligible and ineligible for the World Cup. The actual total prize money is $440 million, which is $40 million more than the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Each player participating in the Qatar World Cup can receive up to $370,000, with a maximum of $10,000 per day, based on the number of days spent at the World Cup. This is also a decision made to prevent unfair distribution of money.
The guaranteed minimum salary for each team is $900, because as long as they are out of the World Cup group, they can get $9 million. And before the start of the game, the organizing committee has given each national team 1.5 million US dollars as a preparation fund.
Teams that stay longer and win more games in the tournament can earn more money, with the Qatar World Cup winner taking home $42 million.
However, the previous World Cup winners have come and gone, such as France, Germany, Spain, Argentina and so on. Although the prize money is huge, I believe that the players care more about the honor of winning the championship for the country.
