FIFA has announced that it will splash the cash at this year's Women's World Cup with players to receive up to $405,000 each for participating.

Previously earning a mere $20,000 per year, Matildas players are set to enjoy a substantial financial windfall at the FIFA World Cup.

Each squad member is guaranteed a minimum payment of $45,000 for their participation in the tournament, with the potential to earn an astonishing $402,000 each if they emerge as victorious on home soil.

Furthermore, FIFA will augment funding to participating member associations, which can be utilised to cover World Cup-related expenses and, if any funds remain, directed towards domestic development.

Nations whose teams reach the group stage will receive $1.6million, with the sum significantly rising to $4.3million for the ultimate winners.

This financial boost will be particularly meaningful for first-time participants, including Haiti, Panama, the Philippines, and Zambia, who will greatly appreciate the generous support from FIFA.
