The FIFA Club Benefits Programme is an initiative that is designed to recognise the contribution of football clubs during the World Cup periods.

It sees clubs also get rewarded financially from proceeds from the tournament with the distribution done through member associations to clubs who made their players available for their respective national teams.

The initiative was first introduced ahead of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

The financial reward is given to clubs that the player was registered with during the World Cup qualifiers as well as during the time of the tournament.

The Club Benefits Programme will see USD 209 million distributed to clubs across the world for their player contribution to Qatar 2022.

The same amount was distributed following the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

In comparison, the share of benefits for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil was USD 70 million, which was an increase from USD 40 million allocated for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
