At its meeting in Costa do Sauipe/Bahia earlier today, the FIFA Finance Committee approved an increase to the contribution pool for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil to $576 million, compared to £420 million in 2010.
The winners will receive $35 million, while the runners-up will obtain $25 million, the third-placed team $22 million, the fourth-placed $20 million, and quarter-finalists $14 million each. Teams that reach the round of 16 will each get $9 million, while those eliminated in the group stage will each receive $8 million. A total of $358 million will be shared as prize money among the 32 participating teams.
In addition, each of the 32 qualified teams will be granted USD 1.5 million for preparation costs. $70 million will be provided by FIFA via the member associations to the clubs whose players take part in the final competition as a contribution towards their participation.
A further $100 million has been allocated to the Club Protection Programme for the FIFA World Cup. This programme was launched in 2012 and is applicable on a worldwide level for all matches listed in the international match calendar for the period from 1 September 2012 until 31 December 2014, including the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
