As the World Cup continues to grow in popularity, the prize money also continues to rise. In December 2009, FIFA announced that the prize money for the 2010 World Cup would increase 61 percent from that awarded in Germany 2006 and the pot size from 2014 is a further 37 percent increase on the value from the previous tournament. Moreover, this sum is likely to grow further ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The winning prize of 35 million U.S. dollars in the 2014 World Cup is 5 million U.S. dollars more than Spain received for winning the tournament in South Africa in 2010. The 32 participating nations shared a total fund of 576 million U.S. dollars which included insurance policies to cover the club salaries owed to injured players. A total of 70 million U.S. dollars in fees was paid to clubs whose players play in the World Cup. This meant that the actual prize pot for the tournament stood at 358 million U.S. dollars, with Germany, the ultimate champions of the 2014 tournament, taking roughly a 10 percent share. Each player of the German squad was also awarded a 408,000 U.S. dollars bonus from their national football federation (DFB) for lifting the trophy.

Each of the 32 nations that reached the finals in Brazil earned at least 8 million U.S. dollars on top of the 1.5 million U.S. dollars which was given to them by FIFA as preparation costs. This money, as well as the sponsorship deals and enhanced international exposure that the tournament brings, means that qualification for the FIFA World Cup finals can be a very lucrative business for national football federations.
