Find out how much Premier League clubs earned from the World Cup; Man City were the top earners while Wolves came in seventh; if a player has moved within the last two years, including on loan, then the money will be split between the clubs involved
Which Premier League club earned the most from the World Cup?
Premier League clubs will receive a cash boost from FIFA after sending their players off to the World Cup as part of the governing body’s Club Benefits Programme.
This entitles clubs who were represented by players in Qatar to around $10,000 (£8,200) for every day individual players were away on international duty.
Those who reached the final or third-place play-off earned their club around $370,000 (£304,000), while those who made the semi-final will earn around $320,000 (£263,000).
A quarter-final place would see a player make $280,000 (£230,000) for their club, while a round-of-16 payment equates to around $220,000 (£181,000).
Failure to progress from the group stages would still see a player earn $180,000 (£148,000) for their domestic side.
However, if a player has moved within the last two years – including on loan – then the money will be split between the clubs involved. For example, Lisandro Martinez may be a Manchester United player now but Ajax stand to make more money – around two-thirds – from his run to the final with Argentina as they held his registration for seasons 2020/21 and 2021/22.
This is why Barcelona will still make money from Lionel Messi’s winning campaign, despite his move to Paris Saint-Germain in August 2021.
