As per FIFA’s guidelines, a daily amount of $10,950 will be granted to each of the 837 footballers who participated in the World Cup, regardless of their playing time during the tournament.

This sum will be divided and distributed among the clubs to which the players were registered in the two years leading up to the Qatar finals.

Regrettably, no PSL players were present in the Qatar World Cup. Although Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Richard Ofori was expected to represent the league, he did not secure a spot in the final Ghana squad for the prestigious soccer event.

Consequently, the South African league will not benefit from FIFA’s financial disbursement. It is noteworthy that this amount marks an increase from the $8,530 FIFA paid per player during the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Among the beneficiaries of FIFA’s distribution, English clubs take the lead with a total of 46 teams receiving a combined sum of $37,713,297. Following closely are clubs from Spain, Germany, Italy, and France.

Manchester City will receive the highest amount among all clubs, with an impressive sum of $4,596,445. Barcelona follows closely behind with $4,538,955, and Bayern Munich secures the third spot with $4,331,809.

Earlier this year, FIFA and the European Club Association inked an agreement for the 2026 and 2030 editions of the World Cup. Under this agreement, a staggering $355 million will be distributed to clubs as part of the program.

As reiterated, the absence of PSL players in Qatar means that the league’s teams will not receive any financial benefits from FIFA’s payout.

Notably, Orlando Pirates’ Richard Ofori, initially expected to represent the PSL, did not make it into the Ghana squad for the soccer extravaganza.
