FIFA expands club rewards from 2026 World Cup… 459.9 billion won

From the next World Cup, compensation for clubs producing national teams will increase significantly.

Britain’s ‘Guardian’ reported on the 28th that the International Football Federation (FIFA) and the European Club Association (ECA) had agreed to organize 355 million dollars (about 459.9 billion won) in the ‘Club Benefit Program’ starting from the 2026 World Cup in North and Central America. did.

FIFA pays compensation to clubs that produced many national teams from two weeks before the start of the tournament to the day after the last match. It is a concept of compensation for not being able to play in the team during the World Cup.

Until the previous tournament, it was 209 million dollars (approximately 270.8 billion won), but 10,000 dollars (approximately 13 million won) were calculated for each player a day and allocated to their team.

In the case of Tottenham Hotspur, a team belonging to Son Heung-min (31), 11 players received 2.82 million dollars (approximately 3.6 billion won) in compensation. If Tottenham produces the same national team for the North and Central America World Cup, it can expect a profit of about 6.1 billion won, a 70% increase.

FIFA’s move is interpreted as a gesture of reconciliation with European clubs who protested against the insistence that the World Cup hosting cycle be reduced to two years. It is also a preliminary measure for the smooth hosting of the Club World Cup, which FIFA expanded from the existing 7-team system to 32 teams. 토토사이트

FIFA is also considering joining forces with clubs in the form of a joint venture around the 2025 Club World Cup. It is similar to the relationship that the European Football Federation (UEFA) has with the ECA in relation to the European Champions League.
