Women's World Cup 2023 prize money: How much will players earn for winning the iconic competition? | The Sun

THE Women's World Cup commences in just a few days and the prize fund has seen a staggering increase from 2019.

FIFA have boosted this year's pool to £88.5million, which is more than three times the amount of the £24million prize fund at the 2019 Women's World Cup in France.

This still does not come close to the men's winners prize fund in Qatar at £313million.

However, FIFA president Gianni Infantino stated he hopes to equal the prize money between both the men's and women's tournaments by the 2027 Women's World Cup.

FIFA has blamed the unequal prize fund to broadcasters and TV networks for offering significantly less for the women's tournament's media rights.

They have further clarified they are doing their bit to fight for equality in the sport and others now need to start doing the same.

The Euro 2022 winners are certain to earn £24,000 for reaching the group stages.
