2018 FIFA World Cup Prize Money - The Winner and Countries' Bonus Payments

FIFA confirmed in October 2017 that a total of $400 million would be shared between the participants at the 2018 World Cup in the form of prize money.

Simply reaching the finals is worth a minimum of $9.5m ($8m for taking part in the group stage and $1.5m for tournament costs).

If a team progresses from the group stage but gets knocked out at the round of 16 they will be rewarded with an extra $4m (a total of $12m).

Teams that are eliminated in the quarter-final stage will receive a further $4m ($16m) and the final four will each receive different amounts, depending on how well they do.

The beaten semi-finalists who contest the third-place play-off will share $46m, with $24m going to winner and $22m going to the loser.

The 2018 World Cup final is a $66m game and the winners will be paid $38m with the runners-up getting $28m.

Those figures will be boosted by the $1.5m for tournament costs and all prizes be paid out after the completion of the competition.You can see a breakdown of the prizes below.
