Fifa will pay $200 million to clubs with players at the World Cup

Fifa will distribute more than $200 million to clubs whose players are taking part in the World Cup in Qatar this winter.

The game’s global governing body confirmed details of its club benefits program on Tuesday, announcing that $209 million had been set aside.

Fifa understands the program will mean paying $10,000 per player for each day they stay with their national team at the World Cup itself and during the official preparation period.

The more participants a club has and how far each of those players get in the tournament will determine the final amount a club can claim.

Any club that a player was registered with in the two years prior to the World Cup is entitled to a portion of the daily payout.

At the 2018 tournament, 416 clubs from 63 countries benefited from the programme.

Clubs can submit applications digitally for the first time, FIFA announced.
