FIFA has recently announced that it will pay clubs $355 millions for sending players to the World Cup 2026 and 2030. Earlier this compensation was $209 Million for the world cups 2018 and 2022.

The recent remuneration by FIFA has been increased by up to 70%. In this regard, a Memorandum of Understanding signed between the global soccer governing body and the European Club Association (ECA). On this occasion, Nasser Al Khelaifi, ECA Chairman said, “We are delighted to have signed this landmark agreement

He added, The MoU recognises the central role of clubs in football globally and ensures that they are properly represented in decision making around issues which affect them.

FIFA and ECA will also now establish closer working practices on a future new Club World Cup… and working together on future editions including on potential structures for managing the commercial rights going forward.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino says that, “To have the new International Match Calendar endorsed by ECA provides the necessary balance between club and national team football,”

We have exciting projects ahead, including the new FIFA Club World Cup in 2025 and the new FIFA women’s Club World Cup. A close collaboration with clubs in Europe, and the rest of the world, will be essential for the success of those events,” said Infantino.
