FIFA to pay World Cup prize money directly to players

FIFA Women Lowest Ranked Super Falcons of Nigerian Team head into the last 16 unbeaten in the group

FIFA has announced that they will now pay prize money directly into the accounts of the winning players in the ongoing women’s World Cup.

This change in policy comes after issues with unpaid allowances for Nigeria’s Super Falcons.

The head coach had revealed that some players were owed bonuses from two years ago, causing unrest among the team.

In a viral video, FIFA Secretary-General, Fatma Samoura, acknowledged the difficulties faced by the Falcons and stated that the organization will ensure match bonuses are directly given to the players for the first time.

“I know that things have been tough. We have to face the realities of Nigeria. It pains me a lot. It is because of you (the Super Falcons) that, for the first time, the prize money has been ring-fenced in the history of FIFA to ensure that it goes to you,” the FIFA secretary-general said.

FIFA had announced that every player participating in the World Cup group stage would earn $30,000.

The match bonuses will increase to $60,000 in the second round of the competition.
