#Brazil2014: See The Prize Money Up For Grabs In The World Cup

share on:

The 2014 FIFA World Cup has been described as the most valuable and most expensive ever, and the countries taking part are sure benefiting from it.

From its near $4.5 billion in revenue from broadcasters, sponsors, hospitality and licensing deals, FIFA distributes just over $400 million to the 32 national federations taking part in the tournament.

Here is how some of that money breaks down:

___

FIRST PRIZE

The winner between Germany and Argentina in the final will get $35 million in prize money paid to its national federation, which can spend the money as it chooses.

That’s $5 million more than the $30 million Spain took home from South Africa four years ago.

The runner up gets $25 million (up from $24 million in 2010), while the third- and fourth-place teams get $22 million and $20 million, respectively.

___

PLAYERS’ SHARE

FIFA lets national federations choose how to reward the 23 players on their squads.

___

PRIZE POOL

Prize money for the other 28 federations who are eliminated before the semifinals stayed at the same level as in 2010.

Quarterfinalists get $14 million, round of 16 losers get $9 million and those which failed to advance from the group get $8 million.
