VOV.VN - The Vietnamese women's national football team will receive approximately VND50 billion from FIFA for competing at the upcoming 2023 Women’s World Cup.
The move comes after football’s global governing body decided to raise the total prize money of the 2023 Women's World Cup to three times higher than the previous tournament four years ago.
Gianni Infantino, president of FIFA, revealed that the figure is to be set US$152 million, equivalent to more than VND3.5 trillion.
At the 2019 Women's World Cup, the participating teams received a minimum of US$750,000, while the prize money on offer at the 2023 Women's World Cup will see a three-fold rise.
In line with this ratio, the Vietnamese women's team will receive about US$1.9 million, equivalent to VND45 billion, when participating in the group stage of the tournament.
In addition to the prize money, the Vietnamese women's team will also receive about US$950,000 from the preparation fund for participating teams from FIFA.
This marks a very significant step forward in terms of the plan to create equality between the men's and women's World Cup in 2027.
