FIFA Introduces Direct Payment to Women’s World Cup Winners

In a groundbreaking move, FIFA has unveiled its new plan to directly pay the winners of the ongoing women’s World Cup in Australia/New Zealand. The decision comes after a viral video on social media, where FIFA secretary-general, Fatma Samoura, acknowledged the challenges faced by Nigeria’s Super Falcons in receiving their allowances.

Addressing the team in a dressing room video, Samoura expressed empathy for the difficulties faced by the players and announced that the prize money for the women’s World Cup will now be paid directly into the players’ accounts. This is the first time in FIFA’s history that such an arrangement has been made to ensure players receive their rightful rewards.

Furthermore, FIFA will closely monitor the distribution of match bonuses to ensure they reach the players without any delays or issues. This measure aims to provide greater financial security and support to the athletes participating in the tournament.

As part of the new policy, FIFA has set the group stage earnings at $30,000 for each player. This amount will double to $60,000 in the second round of the competition, making the tournament more rewarding for successful teams.

The move is a significant step towards promoting gender equality in football and addressing the challenges faced by women’s teams regarding financial issues. FIFA’s commitment to empowering female athletes by directly paying their winnings marks a positive change for the future of women’s football.
