Prize for the 2022 World Cup Winner and Participants



The World Cup 2022 champions will receive a whopping $42 million (£35 million) in prize money. This is a $4 million increase over the previous tournament in Russia in 2018.

The figure continues a 40-year trend of the winning nation’s pay slips increasing significantly. To give some context, it was only in 2006 that the World Cup-winning team pocketed more than $10 million, with Italy collecting $20 million as champions. Brazil received less than half of that amount in 2002, and the Italians received only $2.2 million for their triumphant efforts in 1982.

Each nation receives World Cup prize money based on their performance, in addition to the pride of making a run at the World Cup.

FIFA will distribute $440 million in prize money for the World Cup, with each team receiving $1.5 million just for qualifying.

Prize money is distributed according to the tournament stage that teams reach.

How much prize money did the 2018 World Cup winner get?

In comparison to four years ago, when the 32 teams shared a pot of $400 million, the prize money had increased.

The winning team in 2022 will receive $42 million, an increase of $42 million from the prize money in 2014. The winners in 2018 (France) received $38 million.

How much money do World Cup athletes make?

The amount of prize money each country uses to compensate its players is up to them. Some nations may distribute the money according to outward appearances, while others may divide it equally.
