FIFA has officially announced that a sum of $209 million will be distributed to clubs whose players participated in the 2022 World Cup held in Qatar last year. The payment is set to benefit a total of 440 clubs from 51 different countries, all of whose players were involved in the tournament that took place in November and December. Notably, Argentina emerged victorious in the competition.

Under this distribution scheme, each of the 837 footballers who took part in the World Cup will receive a daily amount of $10,950, regardless of their actual playing time during the event. The allocated payment per player is divided and assigned to the club or clubs where the player was registered during the two-year period leading up to Qatar 2022.

This figure marks an increase from the $8,530 per player that FIFA paid during the 2018 World Cup in Russia. As for the distribution breakdown, a total of 46 English clubs will be the primary recipients, collectively receiving $37,713,297. Following closely behind are clubs from Spain, Germany, Italy, and France.

 

Following a challenging exit from the Gold Cup, Qatar shifts its focus to World Cup qualifiers.

In terms of payment distribution, Manchester City will claim the top spot among all clubs, receiving an impressive amount of $4,596,445. Barcelona closely follows with $4,538,955, while Bayern Munich secures $4,331,809.
