Players from Germany, Spain’s rivals in the first round of the tournament, will receive 400,000 euros each if they lift the World Cup in Qatar, the German Football Federation (DFB) announced today after agreeing with them on premiums for participation in tournament competition.
The prize for winning the title is higher than the 350,000 euros of the previous World Cup in Russia in 2018, an edition where Germany fell in the first stage. When the ‘Mannschaft’ won the title in Brazil 2014, beating Argentina 1-0 in the final, the players received a bonus of 300,000 euros each.
The agreed premium
Overcoming the group stage in Qatar 2022 represents 50,000 euros for each player of the team led by Hansi Flick, while if they reach the round of 16 they will receive 100,000 euros per head.
The number will reach 150,000 euros if they reach the semifinals, the prize will increase to 200,000 for the third place and 250,000 euros for the runner-up.
“We had intensive discussions in a good and constructive atmosphere. At the end of the day we found a solution acceptable to everyone,” said DFB President Bernd Neuendorf after a meeting with representatives of the German national team, Manuel Neuer, Thomas Müller, Joshua Kimmich, and Ilkay Gündogan.
Forget the Russia 2018 Historic Disaster
Germany has been paired in group E of the first phase of the 2022 World Cup with Spain, Costa Rica and Japan, the rivals with whom they will debut in the tournament on November 23.
The ‘Mannschaft’, which did not get access to the Final Four of the Nations League after falling in the round of 16 in the European Championship played in 2021, will try in Qatar to forget the historic disaster it suffered in Russia 2018.
Germany then fell for the first time in a group stage as they finished last after losing to Mexico in their first match (0-1) and South Korea in the third and final match (2-0). In the second he achieved his second win against Sweden (2-1).
