The 2022 FIFA World Cup will take place in Qatar from November 20 to December in Qatar. All 32 teams will aim to win the trophy and be crowned world champions.

Prize money at the 2022 FIFA Men’s World Cup will come from a pot of $440 million.
The FIFA World Cup is the most significant award available to any soccer player. Not for financial reasons. It’s all about national pride and becoming the best team globally. However, prize money is still on the line for the teams playing in the World Cup. FIFA announced earlier this year that the total prize pool for Qatar 2022 would be $440 million, with the winning team receiving $42 million. The prize pool had grown since the 2018 World Cup when France won $38 million of the total $400 million pot.
Who gets the prize money at World Cup 2022?
In April 2022, FIFA announced the prizes for all participating nations. Each qualified team will receive $1.5 million before the competition to cover preparation costs with each team receiving at least $9 million in prize money. This edition’s total prize pool will be $440 million, $40 million greater than the prize pool of the previous tournament. The 2022 World Cup Final makes up $72 million of the $440 million purse. The champion of the tournament will bank $42 million in winnings.
