How much the 2023 Women's World Cup winners get in prize money

As the Lionesses prepare to take on Spain in the Women’s World Cup Final this Sunday, many people are wondering how much the England players will earn from the tournament.

They became the first ever England team to reach the final, after beating Australia on their home turf.

The final follows England’s triumph at Euro 2022, where Spain were their most difficult opponents. It took an extra-time winner from England in the quarter-finals to beat them.

Manager Sarina Weigman will shortly be announcing her starting XI, but how much can the players expect to earn from the Women’s World Cup?

Let’s find out.

How much will the players earn?

The total FIFA prize pot for the Women’s World Cup is $110 million (£85 million).

According to Talksport, the Lionesses received £10,000 each to help families attend the tournament in Australia and New Zealand.

Due to FIFA’s new pay structure, they won’t receive a bonus (traditionally, male players give this away, but earn much more than the Lionesses from club contracts and endorsements).
