The 2014 edition of the World Cup ended a few months ago with Germany lifting the prestigious title and it has recently been revealed that certain club has earned more than £600,000.
Clubs are rewarded for the number of players who attended the previous international tournament and the higher amount of performer that there is, is better for the particular club. This system was initiated during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and continues rolling on
Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Chelsea were some of the clubs which earned more money with the team of Pep Guardiola gaining £1.1m due to amount of German players in the team which helped in winning the World Cup title.
Chelsea on the other hand earned around £780,000 thanks to Andre Schurrle and a few other players who are rewarded for the amount of days that were spent in the 2014 World Cup tournament.
‘’The European Club Association (ECA) is pleased to announce that 396 clubs affiliated to 57 different national associations from around the globe will receive a share of the benefits from the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil’’ read a statement released by the club governing body authority.
Each player earns their respective playing clubs a fee of £1,850 per day that was spent playing and surviving in the tournament that every player around the world desires to win but only a few of them are actually capable of doing it.
This payment scheme has started a number of complaints as there are people who believe that this money should have been better spent by upgrading the football pitches for certain countries or simply to help out in the development of players or youngsters who don’t have the financial power to sustain themselves instead of sending that money to powerhouse clubs who are already spending astronomically high amount of cash in their process of signing players during each transfer window.
