FIFA shares $209m with 416 clubs and $6.3m for African clubs

FIFA announced on Tuesday that it would allocate $209million to clubs whose players have contributed to the success of the World Cup in Russia.

According to a statement posted on its website, FIFA announced that this money would be donated to 416 clubs from 63 member associations, which represents a significant increase of nearly 200% compared to the previous edition.

Gianni Infantino, FIFA President, while commenting on the payment, said, “the FIFA World Cup is the pinnacle of football, generating passion and emotion from every player and every fan in every corner of the world. It is FIFA’s responsibility to redistribute the revenues of this unique competition among the entire football community, and clubs, obviously, deserve to share in this success as they were key contributors.

“I’m very pleased to see that teams from so many different regions will benefit from this programme, which will help to develop football even further around the globe,” Infantino said.
