Ligue 1 clubs will hit the jackpot thanks to the World Cup


The World Cup ends this Sunday with the long-awaited final between Lionel Messi’s Argentina and Kylian Mbappé’s France. The whole planet sees this poster as a duel between the two strong men of this meeting. One could finally touch the supreme trophy after failing in the final 8 years ago, when the other would become the first in 60 years to win the World Cup twice at such an early age (he will be 24 on December 20, two days after the final).

The two stars also have a common feature. They are both under contract with PSG, which is rubbing its hands. As with every international competition it organizes, FIFA allocates a package per player of 10,000 dollars, to be multiplied by the number of days of presence, since the start of the preparation. And it concerns “all clubs the player has played for in the two years preceding the competition.” Suffice to say that for clubs with several elements in Qatar, the note can climb very quickly.

PSG takes the jackpot

This is the case for 21 French formations, which will receive 12.1 M€ overall. Obviously, they are not all on the same footing since PSG (11 players present at the World Cup) takes the lion’s share with a check for €3.142 million. The Team explains in his edition of the day that a player like Paredes will bring money to the club of the capital, while he currently wears the colors of Juventus. Nothing for an element reaching the final, it is a check for 350,000 euros which falls into the coffers, provided that the player has spent the last two years at the club.

Monaco and OM are also well off. They must respectively pocket 1.460 and 1.427 M€. Stade Rennais will benefit from its side of 1.243 M€ thanks to its 8 players present at the World Cup, in particular Mandanda and Majer, still in the running. 706,000 euros await OL, while FC Nantes, for example, will obtain two-thirds of the full allocation (the famous 350,000 euros) thanks to Randal Kolo Muani. Even Angers smiles with Boufal and Ounahi because 565,000 euros will arrive in the club’s coffers.
