Man City to get $5 million from FIFA for World Cup players

English champions Manchester City are the biggest beneficiaries from the $209 million handed out by FIFA to clubs who released players for the 2018 World Cup, the global soccer body said on Tuesday. City will receive $5.0 million, ahead of Real Madrid ($4.81 million), Tottenham Hotspur ($4.38 million), Barcelona ($4.14 million) and Paris St Germain ($3.89 million), FIFA said.

They are followed by Chelsea, Manchester United, Atletico Madrid, Juventus and AS Monaco.

In all, English clubs — including those from the lower tiers — will receive $37.41 million between them while Spanish clubs will receive $22.56 million, German clubs $18.92 million and Italian clubs $17.45 million.

FIFA pays clubs a basic amount of $8,530 per day for every player released for the World Cup, although this has to be split with any club which the player has represented in the previous two years.

The system was introduced for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa after European clubs complained they had to bear the consequences for players injured in national team matches.

Initially, $40 million was handed out for the 2010 World Cup, increased to $70 million for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

FIFA then agreed to treble this amount to the current $209 million in exchange for European clubs agreeing to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar being moved from the traditional June/July slot to November.

The amounts handed out reflect that most of the world’s top players are based with European clubs, although FIFA said other regions also benefitted. Overall, 416 clubs from 63 countries will receive payments. (Reuters)
