For this World Cup edition, the highest international soccer federation designated a budget of $209 million to distribute among the 416 clubs who contributed players to the tournament. The amount will be distributed depending on the days that the soccer player lasted in the competition and until what phase his country was.

For each day that the soccer player is in competition, the FIFA will give his club an amount of USD 10 thousand.

In the case of the players in Raúl’s squad Foal Gutiérrez, the Mexican teams competed only until the group stage —like the Ecuadorian—, that is to say that Antuna and Charlie Rodriguez accumulated three official days of competition (six for both), coupled with the three days in which Estrada played.

Therefore, if the days per player are considered, Cruz Azul would be receiving up to USD 90 thousand in said item.

Now, for each phase of the tournament, there will be an additional reward, which is divided as follows:

*Group stage: USD 180 thousand

*Eighth final: USD 220 thousand

*Quarterfinals: USD 280 thousand

*Semifinals: USD 320 thousand

*Final: USD 370 thousand

In the case of Mexico and Ecuador, both only reached the group stage. Because the support is considered individually by each soccer player, Cruz Azul would be charging around USD 540 thousand only for the group stage.

So if both figures are added, only for their current players with the Machine could collect USD 630 thousand.

For Qatar 2022, FIFA also gave a benefit for former players, that is, the footballers who went to the World Cup and who in the last two years were at Cruz Azul would also contribute to La Noria. For this item, it would only be charged for the days played, not for the phase in which they were left.

Orbelin Pineda, Robert Alvarado Y louis romo would be the ones who fall into this category, so for all three I would receive USD 180 thousand.
