How Prize Money Will Be Distributed At The World Cup
2018 FIFA World Cup
While the 32 teams involved in the FIFA World Cup will be aiming to go as far as possible and achieve success on the pitch, they will also be battling for a sizeable pot of prize money. Late last year, FIFA announced the amount of prize money available for the tournament in Russia and it's at record levels once again. Excluding the Club Benefit and Protection Programmes, prize money this year stands at $400 million, an increase on 2014's $358 million.
The following infographic provides an overview of how the performance-based prize money will be distributed. When Germany won the trophy in 2014, it was awarded $35 million. This year, the eventual winner in Russia will receive even more, $38 million. The runner-up will get $28 million while third place will receive $24 million.
