As France battles Croatia in the World Cup final match today, it has been gathered that the winners of the competition will pocket £29million for lifting the trophy at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.
The runners-up will trouser £21million, while Belgium and England found out their payouts after the third-place playoff on Saturday.
After winning 2-0, Belgium will take home £18million while England are awarded £16.5million.
The total prize money for the World Cup is £302million, a figure which was confirmed by FIFA back in October 2017. It was also gathered that the 32 sides at the finals were handed £1.2million just for making it to the finals, having navigated qualification campaigns across the globe.
The four defeated quarter-finalists landed £12.1million apiece, while the eight teams beaten in the second round stage all earned £9million extra.
Those 16 sides who failed to make it through the group stage, such as Poland, Germany and Egypt, all took home a £6million slice of the FIFA pie.
Here is a breakdown of the World Cup prize money;
  • Preparation fee (For all 32 teams) – £1.2million
  • 16 eliminated group stage teams – £6million
  • 8 eliminated round of 16 teams – £9million
  • 4 eliminated quarter-final teams – £12.1million
  • Fourth place team – £16.5million
  • Third place team – £18million
  • Runners-up – £21million
  • Winners – £29million
This follows up report of Russian President Vladimir Putin handing over the mantle of World Cup host to the emir of Qatar, whose country will stage the 2022 edition of the tournament.
The ceremony marked a handover from the world’s largest country by landmass to one of the smallest. Qatar has a population of 2.3 million people and an area slightly smaller than the U.S. state of Connecticut.
With hours to go until the final between France and Croatia that will bring down the curtain on Russia’s hosting of this year’s tournament, Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani joined Putin and FIFA chief Gianni Infantino at a Kremlin ceremony.
