Prize Money: How Much Will The Winners Of Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup Receive?

The FIFA World Cup is the most watched sporting event on the planet, so it’s not surprising that there is always a huge amount of prize money to be won at the tournament.

Qatar 2022 FIFA World will be the first time that the tournament will played in the winter. It kicks off from November 20 to December 18.

At every edition of the World Cup, FIFA’s budget increases, as the competition becomes more popular and sponsors pay more money.

Moreso, there is always a large monetary incentive for lifting the FIFA World Cup and the jackpot for clinching the title keeps getting bigger at each edition.

In this article, FootballOrbit brings you the prize money on offer at Qatar 2022.

Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup is the most expensive World Cup event ever, with an estimated revenue budget of $220 billion!

This is largely due to the high cost of building new stadiums, renovations, fixing infrastructure as well as technology.

FIFA confirmed in April 2022 that the total prize money for Qatar 2022 World Cup will reach up to a massive $440 million.

It means that the total prize pool will be $40m greater than the prize pool of the 2018 tournament in Russia — which was $400m.

The prize money for Brazil 2014 was $358m.
