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.
