Before the start of the twenty-second edition of the World Cup, the International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA) announced that it would distribute sums of money to clubs, in return for sending their players to participate with their countries in the World Cup.
On October 11, FIFA revealed the value of this amount, which amounted to $209 million. It will pay compensation to clubs for every day that their players stayed during the tournament matches, including the preparatory period that precedes the start of the World Cup.
The clubs will earn $10,000 for each day each player stays with his national team, including the preparatory period, provided that the player has already participated in his club’s matches, two years before the start of the tournament.
