2022 World Cup: FIFA to pay clubs $10,000 per player every day

FIFA is set to pay Europe’s leading clubs a record amount of $10,000 per player per day while their stars are at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Manchester City, Real Madrid, Tottenham and Barcelona were some of the top earners at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Four years ago, FIFA distributed $209million under its Club Benefits Programme.

The more players a club has at the tournament and the further they progress in the tournament, the more money they stand to earn under the scheme.

And the pot on offer has been increased from a rate of $8,530 (£6,440) per player per day in 2018 to $10,000 (£9,012) this time around.

It means Premier League clubs such as Chelsea, who have as many as 20 players in contention for World Cup selection, stand to profit most from their stars being away.

Man City could have as many as 17 internationals away in Qatar this time around.
