Virtually all the preparations for Qatar 2022 are almost done. Some of the information that was missing was the economic incentive that each team that competes in the World Cup will receive, but no more. FIFA announced the millionaire earnings that the 32 invited teams will take.
The highest soccer body reported that in total it will give a bag of 165 million dollarswhere obviously the champion team you will get the best part, since you will automatically be entitled to $44 million dollarsbut the team that it defeats in the final will not have a precarious purse, since it will be able to console itself with $30 million dollars.
How much can Mexico and the United States earn?
The prize that will be awarded to the champion applies to any participating team regardless of their confederation, so Concacaf teams such as Mexico, the United States and Costa Rica could obtain up to 44 million dollars.
Nevertheless, in the worst case they would take $9 million dollarssince it is the smallest amount that FIFA will grant and it will be only for having a presence in the group stage, even for the teams that lose all their matches.
It is worth mentioning that the further the teams go, the greater their financial reward.
The prize table is as follows:
- Champion: $44 million
- Runner-up: $30 million
- Third place: $27 million
- Fourth place: $25 million
- Fifth to eighth place: $17 million
- 9th to 16th place: $13 million
- Group stage: 9 million dollars
Conmebol offers extra bonus
The teams from South America deserve a special mention, since Alejandro Domínguez, president of Conmebol, announced that they will put an additional $10 million to reward the team from the region that manages to lift the cup.
In this way, if the champion is Ecuador, Argentina, Brazil or Uruguaythey would take a not inconsiderable bag of $54 million dollars, in addition to the joy and distinction of being the best team in the world.
