The 2018 World Cup finals were widely seen as a massive success.

The entertainment at the finals was seen as generally high.

The kick-off times were very good for a UK audience.

A very competitive tournament saw the vast majority of games not seen as walkovers.

Whilst worries about violence on the streets after the disgraceful behaviour of Russian fans in France (at Euro 2016) proved not to be the case, as they weren’t repeated on home soil.

Now FIFA have released figures showing exactly by how much individual clubs benefited via the participation of their players in the tournament finals.

Manchester City banked more than any other club in the World, a hefty $5,003,440 (approc £3.93m).

These are the figures showing what every English club has banked:

    Totally insignificant figures dwarfed by the amount leaving the club as the owner takes free advertising and merchandising.
