World Cup

Qatar: FIFA will pay teams $10,000 per player per day for the duration of the 2022 World Cup.

FIFA will pay the player’s club $10,000 in compensation for each day a player spends at the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

This means that any Ghanaian club whose player is picked for the World Cup would receive at least $120,000 in compensation.

This is part of the World Football Federation’s Club Benefits Programme, which aims to recognize clubs’ contributions to the event.

According to the Daily Mail, $209 million was distributed to over 400 clubs from 63 countries during the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Real Madrid, Barcelona, Tottenham Hotspur, and Barcelona won the most money because they had the most players at the past World Cup.

The $10,000 compensation is paid by FIFA’s Club Benefits Programme to all clubs for which a player has played in the two years preceding the event.

If a player has signed with two clubs in the two years preceding the competition, the money will be split equally between the two clubs.

In 2018, Manchester City made $5,003,440, Manchester United also banked $3,656,360, Arsenal got $2,218,720 and Chelsea earned $3,835,357.50.

Premier League side Liverpool also received $2,585,205, while Tottenham Hotspur got $4,385,792.50.

Meanwhile, Ghana and the other 31 World Cup qualifiers will each receive at least $12 million for their participation in Qatar.

FIFA will provide each squad with $2 million for tournament preparation and an additional $10 million as a participation fee.

The Black Stars are in Group H with Portugal, Uruguay, and South Korea, and will be hoping to advance from there.

Ghana qualified for the World Cup after a thrilling 1-1 tie with Nigeria at the Mashood Abiola Stadium in March.

Thomas Partey’s first-half goal was cancelled out by a penalty from Super Eagles captain William Troost-Ekong, as both teams shared the spoils in Abuja.

After the first leg finished in a goalless draw at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi, the result ensured the Black Stars’ qualification on away goals.
