Liverpool are set to earn a substantial amount of compensation from FIFA following the World Cup in Qatar.

FIFA launched the FIFA World Cup Club Benefits Programme in 2008.

FIFA have declared that each side will earn approximately $10,000 for every day one of their players have spent in Qatar during the tournament.

$209M has been set aside for payments to compensate clubs.

The same amount of money will be distributed to each club for each player regardless of how many minutes a player plays.

Despite Liverpool having only seven players involved in the tournament, only Darwin Nunez failed to make it to the knock-out stages.

The Athletic report that ‘Any player reaching the final four, thus guaranteeing either a World Cup final or third-placed play-off, will bring a payment forecast to total $370,000.’

Liverpool will earn approximately $1.8M from the tournament. The club will also earn compensation from Neco Williams, Xherdan Shaqiri and Taki Minamino. FIFA will pay compensation to each club a player was registered to for two years prior to the tournament. This is so clubs that play their part during the qualifying campaign also benefit.

Liverpool earned €1,756,000 from the 2018 World Cup according to totalsportal.com
