FIFA distributes 209 million dollars to clubs

The International Football Association (FIFA) has launched a procedure for submitting applications as part of a club aid program, under which $209 million will be distributed to clubs around the world.

The world’s highest football authority said in a statement that it had already distributed the same amount to 416 clubs from 63 member associations after the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

This time, for the first time, clubs will be able to use the so-called “professional football platform” to request approximately $10,000 for each day their players are committed to their national team during the Qatar 2022 World Cup and the official preparation period for this sporting event.

This compensation will be obtained by the clubs with which the player played in the two years preceding the World Cup, which is scheduled to start next month in Qatar.

The International Federation added that “the club aid program forms part of a broad cooperation agreement between FIFA and the European Club Association and was originally created for the 2010 World Cup, and in 2015 it was expanded to include the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.”
