FIFA confirmed the payments that will be made under the Club Benefits Programme in reference to the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Roma make extra revenues thanks to the performance of his players.
Roma’s players contributed to the success of the World Cup and FIFA is going to give indemnity to the clubs for having been able to use their players. An overall amount of $209 million will be paid out to 416 clubs from 63 member associations.
“The FIFA World Cup generates passion and emotion in every corner of the world. It is FIFA’s responsibility to redistribute the revenues of this unique competition with the clubs as they were key contributors,” said FIFA President Gianni Infantino.
The first Italian club in the standings is Juventus with just over $3 million, followed by Inter ($1,83m), Napoli ($1,78m), Milan ($1,37m), Sampdoria ($1,35m) and Roma ($1,27m).
Roma collected revenues thanks to Fazio, Kolarov, and Alisson, the Brazilian goalkeeper who moved to Liverpool FC last summer. The FIFA Club Benefits Programme made the giallorossi happy even if the amount collected cannot be considered really relevant for a top European side.
