Football News

Bayern Munich have been revealed as the club that received the most money from FIFA following last summer’s World Cup.

The governing organisation for world football confirmed at the end of 2013 that they would be paying each club $2,800 per player, per day at the tournament.

And the $1.734 million awarded to Bayern Munich has put them firmly at the top of the list of clubs who received money from FIFA during the tournament.

Dream team

The Bavarian club was able to command such a place in the rankings because they were the club with the most players involved in the tournament.

15 of the Bundesliga champions represented their various teams including seven in Germans who were in Brazil for the long haul as they came away with the trophy.

Best of the rest

Despite Cristiano Ronaldo's early exit with Portugal, Real Madrid still received $1.297 million for the use of their 12 representatives while rivals Barcelona received $1.191 million despite sending one more player.

Chelsea were the English club that came off best as they received $1.253 million for the use of their 12 players.

But Manchester United will have the most cause for concern though as they were not able to cash in so lucratively despite sending 14 players to Brazil.
