Here’s how much France will get for winning 2018 World Cup


The French side beat Croatia 4- 2 in final on Sunday, July 15, 2018, to win its second World Title.

The French national team will be taking the sum of $38 million as the 2018 FIFA World Cup prize money for winning the tournaments.

This is an increase of $3 million from the 2014 World Cup cash prize for a winner.

The French side beat Croatia 4-2 in final played at the Luzhniki Stadium on Sunday, July 15 to win the title for the second time. The first time was in 1998.

According to Time, the prize money is given to each country’s national FIFA federation. These organizations determine how the winnings will be distributed and how much each individual player will receive.

The World Cup trophy is estimated to be worth $20 million. While the winners don’t get to keep the trophy indefinitely, the fame and publicity associated with winning the World Cup can lead to corporate sponsorships, advertising deals, and hefty contracts.

Of course, France and Croatia are not the only teams who will be taking cash home from the World Cup. All teams that advanced to the group stage receive a minimum of $8 million in prize money, as well as $1.5 million to “cover preparation costs.”

On the African side, Nigerian Super Eagles and other teams who qualified for the Russia 2018 World Cup will take $8 million each as participating compensation.
