How much money will the winner get if FIFA World Cup 2022?
In April 2022, FIFA said that the winner of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar would get a record $42 million in prize money.
This is $4 million more than in 2018, and it keeps up a trend that has seen the winners’ pay grow significantly over the past 40 years.
Before 2006, teams that won the World Cup got only $10 million. Italy, which won in 1982, earned an estimated $2.2 million for its efforts.
In 2002, national teams put a lot of pressure on FIFA to raise the prize money. As the World Cup has made more money, these profits have been given to the winning teams.
How much will each team make from the World Cup prize money in 2022?
With so much prize money up for grabs, everyone will leave Qatar much wealthier.
Each team has to pay $1.5 million to be able to play in the 2022 World Cup. But once teams get to the tournament, they can make a lot more money by making it to the knockout stages.
Based on how FIFA broke down the prize money, teams that make it to the semifinals in Qatar will get more money than the 2006 World Cup winners did.

How much do players at the World Cup get paid?
As the most important part of a winning team, players also get paid more when they play at a World Cup.
Even though each national team and player has a different base salary, they all get a share of the prize money their team wins.
FIFA lets each team decide how much each player gets, and Germany promised to give each of their players a bonus of almost $400,000 if they won the title in 2006.
Reports say that Australia will pay each of its players AU$226,000 in 2022, plus an extra $290,000 if they make it to the knockout stages.
Depending on how much money each federation has, other countries may offer more or less than this amount to their players.
How does the prize money for the 2022 World Cup compare to that of the 2023 Women’s World Cup?
FIFA has already said that the Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand in 2023 will have a total prize pool of $60 million.
Even though it is more than seven times less than what will be given out in Qatar in 2022, it is more than twice as much as the estimated $30 million given to women’s teams in 2019.
That World Cup offer was worth twice as much as the $15 million that FIFA gave to the 2015 Women’s World Cup in Canada.
In July, ABC said that the 2023 Women’s World Cup prize money could go up even more. A figure of $100 million was mentioned.
In May, the US men’s and women’s soccer teams agreed to split the prize money they won at the World Cups in 2022 and 2023.
“This is a very important time in history. These agreements have changed the rules of the game for good in the United States, and they could do the same in other places, “At the time, Cindy Parlow Cone, the president of US Soccer, said.
“With these new agreements, US Soccer and the USWNT and USMNT players have started over in their relationship. They are leading us into a very exciting new phase of mutual growth and working together as we keep working to make soccer the most popular sport in the US.”
