L’Équipe report that ahead of the women’s Euro 2022 tournament set to be held in England next month, the French national will only be earning €20,000 in bonuses each should they go on to win the tournament.
Overall, the nation that wins will be winning a total of €2.08m – in comparison, the Italian federation earned €28.5m when their team won the men’s Euros last summer, in a figure which had been lowered due to the impact of Covid-19.
The reason for this is that the women’s tournament does not bring in as much revenue yet, in terms of broadcasting deals and sponsorships.
The FFF use the same system as they do with the men’s team by handing over 30% of the tournament prize money to the players. Divided by the 23 players as well as Corinne Diacre and her staff, this would give around €24,000.
The federation has accounted for a quarter-final finish in its budget, which would see each player receive €13,000. In comparison, the men earned €173,000 each for their round of 16 exit at the Euros last summer to Switzerland. The prize money dedicated to the players should they win next summer’s World Cup will be €12m, so €446,000 each in a 23-man squad.
