Revealed: How much Man City received from FIFA for the World Cup (more than anyone!)

Manchester City were the biggest beneficiaries of FIFA payments for players dispatched to last summer’s World Cup, taking home over $5 million – more than any other club in world football.

City sent a host of stars to the event in Russia and one of them – Benjamin Mendy – came away with a winner’s medal at the end of it.

According to a document released by world football’s governing body today, City received just over US$5 million for their contribution of personnel.

That was the highest amount of the many teams with players at the World Cup, with Real Madrid ranking second on $4.8 million of the $209 million total fund.

The money was paid at a daily rate of $8,530 for the 736 players selected, and $209 million will again be shared among clubs for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
