Since most of the Premier League clubs are losing their best players for at least a month for the World Cup, they would obviously need to be compensated. The topic on whether the compensation is enough or not is for another time as the clubs spent a lot of money to obtain their players.
FIFA has a payment scheme when their respective countries are leasing back their players. It is called the Club Benefits Programme, which would pay the Premier League clubs about £8,100 for every day one of their players is in the tournament.
The time taken for the preparation of the Premier League players to warm up before the World Cup would also be compensated to the clubs. Julian Alvarez, an Argentine forward, is responsible for the majority of that, having reached the final, where each club receives around £297,000 for each player involved.
There will be prize money involved with the Premier League players if they win for their own country. The prize money decreases as a player progresses through the competition, roughly working out to £257,000 for the semi-finals, £225,000 for the quarter-finals, £177,000 for the last-16, and £144,000 for the group stage.
How much exactly will each of the Premier League clubs make?
