Barely three months after the conclusion of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, the World Soccer ruling body has confirmed release of player’s monetary incentive to the federations of the participating countries.
This report was revealed by an online journalist SHE Score Banger, who is purely a women’s football reporter.
The journalist revealed its discussion with FIFA and the response it received from the football body.
“When I asked FIFA about the World Cup money, this is what the spokesperson said:
Response: FIFA tells me about payments:
“Following the conclusion of the Women’s World Cup, FIFA is in contact with the participating member associations (PMAs) regarding the distribution of payments for the tournament, including the record prize money that will be provided by FIFA”
As part of this, FIFA is providing tailored support to PMAs regarding the distribution of payments that are being made, including to the member association and subsequently to players”, the statement read.
Nigeria’s Super Falcons, Atlas Lioness of Morocco, Bayana Bayana of South Africa and Shepolopolo of Zambia represented Africa at the global competition.
