It means more than half of FIFA’s total prize money fund of $110 million must be paid to the players in the 32 team squads.
FIFA will pay 10.5million dollars to the title-winning nation and the majority of that, $6.21million dollars in total, will be distributed among the players with the remaining $4.29 million going to the federation.
Players from the 16 teams that do not advance from the group stage are still guaranteed to get $30,000, more than the annual salary many get from their clubs.
