Germany football players to get KSh50 million each if team wins World Cup
- When Germany won the title at the Brazil World Cup in 2014, the players received bonuses of KSh34.9m each.
- Clearing the group stage in Qatar will earn each player KSh5.8m while a spot in the last eight will net them KSh23.2m each.
Germany players will each receive 400,000 Euros (KSh46.6 million) if they lift the World Cup in Qatar later this year, the country's football association (DFB) said on Sunday after agreeing on tournament bonuses with the team.
The bonus for the title win is up from 350,000 Euros (KSh40.7m) for the previous tournament in 2018, when Germany crashed out in the first round. When Germany won the title at the Brazil World Cup in 2014, the players received bonuses of 300,000 Euros (KSh34.9m) each.
Clearing the group stage in Qatar will earn each player 50,000 Euros (KSh5.8m) while a spot in the last eight will net them 100,000 (KSh11.6m) each.
Germany, desperate to make amends for their dismal 2018 performance, have been drawn in Group E along with Spain, Costa Rica and Japan.
The tournament starts on November 20 and Germany open their campaign against Japan on November 23.
A semi-final spot is worth 150,000 Euros (KSh17.4m) each, while winning third-place would earn Germany's players 200,000 Euros (KSh23.2m) each.
Losing in the final would be rewarded with a 250,000 Euro bonus (KSh 29m).
"We had intense discussions in a good and constructive atmosphere," said DFB President Bernd Neuendorf following a meeting with team representatives Manuel Neuer, Thomas Mueller, Joshua Kimmich and Ilkay Guendogan.
"At the end of the day we have found an acceptable solution for everyone."
