Tunisian Football Federation(TFF) earned the highest income from FIFA's Club Benefits Programme for players' involvement in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The TFF gathered a whopping $1.49 million, followed by the Royal Moroccan Football Federation's $1.43 million, the Egyptian Football Association's $650,638, and the Ghana Football Association's $565, 772 to complete the top four.

The initiative was first introduced before the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, to offer financial rewards to clubs whose players were involved in the World Cup qualifiers and the main tournament.

Under the program, each club is entitled to receive a rounded daily amount of USD 10,950, regardless of the number of minutes they played in the tournament.

Through the Club Benefits Programme, a total of USD 209 million will be distributed to clubs worldwide as recognition for their players' contributions to Qatar 2022.

The compensation forms part of FIFA’s effort to acknowledge the role of clubs in developing and nurturing the players who represented Ghana on the global stage.
