FIFA's World Cup Club Fund Provides MLS Teams with a Clean Windfall

FIFA opened applications this week for a share of the $209 million fund it put up for this year's Club Benefits Program, which gives money to clubs whose members compete in the 2022 World Cup.

The world's governing body of soccer will give teams $10,000 for each day their relevant player is still competing in the league the following month, even during the official training session.

A player must remain with the club side for at least two years prior to the World Cup in order to be eligible to collect the money.

As part of an agreement between FIFA and the European Club Association, the initiative was introduced in 2010, just before the FIFA World Cup in South Africa. 

FIFA gave club teams a total of $40 million in 2010 and $70 million for the Brazil 2014 World Cup.

In order to escape the extreme Qatari heat, FIFA stated in 2015 that the 2022 World Cup in Qatar will take place in November and December, in the midst of the European soccer season.
