    What is the share of the spectators !!!

    • Muhammad Abraar

      Maybe -$576 million

      • mooby

        I heard that fifa gave a lightr to runner up team..is it true? And why .can anyone explain

  • AK

    If you know how insurance is priced, $100 million for insurance premium is an insane amount of money. I suspect a large portion of that money is returned to FIFA Executives under the table or via fake companies controlled by FIFA executives. There is no other way to justify this crazy provision.

  • Canadian

    america should be banned from fifa. period!

    • Mercia

      So should Canada… Oh wait do they even play soccer? Or too busy moose loving…

      • ALL THAT MATTERS!!!!

        WELL SAID!

    • ALL THAT MATTERS!!!!

      OHHHH SHUT UP; HAHAAH UR FROM CANADA; WHICH DOESN’T EVEN HAVE A SOCCER TEAM!

      • all that matters haha

        haha but we got a better Health care then your Country hahaha now which is more important dickwad

      • Football

        It’s FOOTBALL, fat amerocan kid

  • Canadian

    i am so impressed that team ALgeria donated their entire winnings to Gaza.

    • Kartrina
      • yorkie

        Anyone wanting a team to donate their winnings just to buy Hama’s rockets has to be barking mad.
        Canadian you should be ashamed.

        • AeroSexual

          Ashamed? I think not. To show compassion to people who are victims of a systematic political genocide is showing TRUE Canadian values. To think this is a one sided is failing to see the human side of this conflict. Both Israel and Palestine are guilty of using their people as pawns.

        • Anonymous

          Then help Mosad to kill more innocent babies???????????

        • Gaza4ever

          Name the amount of casualties killed or even by Hamas rocket. The war that will be waged on Israel is one to remember

        • yorkie makes no sense

          The donations don’t go to Hamas, thats what uneducated people like you think -_-
          By the way the USA funds ‘Israel’ so they can attack Palestine with Phosphorus bombs and rockets and all other stuff but you’re okay with that right? Stupid bitch

        • joe

          Palestinians are under Israel’s military occupation.

    • Rajen Sapkota

      Wow…that’s great

    • Proud westerner

      Hamas is clear about its position: elimination of the Jews into the mediterranian sea and support of anti-west organizations. So please….stop with the “Palestinian underdog” BS!

    • Kobe

      Mesut Ozil is also donating $600 000

  • Gohar

    $100 million for Insurance??? Unjustifiable….

  • Eric

    He said the breakdown was for the 2010 World Cup which totaled in at $420 million of prize money. You might want to read the whole article before posting.

    • Jay

      I think what Osman is saying is what the article categorizes as “Prize Money” ($576M), isn’t really prize money. Such as the insurance, fees paid to by the countries and the fees paid to the clubs. Slightly misleading in my opinion.

  • E-man123

    Argentina! yay!

  • Maximliano

    Argentina is best ok guys

    • Nick

      Barely managed to win from any of their opponents, almost shit the bed against the Netherlands… not even second best.

  • Sameer

    Total prize money is $576 million, I did not make this up. this information is available on fifa official website and some trusted sources like BBC etc.

  • Doug

    There’s a lot of corruption going on in soccer!

    “Israel uses missiles to protect its people, Hamas/Palestinians use people to protect its missiles.”
    Time to see the terrorists for who they are, not what you desire them to be! Islam is a despicable ideology. It is not a religion!

    • Khan

      Ooh shut up and do not blame Islam, Islam is the only religion that teach / acknowledge peace and equality among all human being, Islam has its own history is not like you European or Americans who were eating children of Blacks and Islam is all against enslaves just remember not too far 1960’s and 50’s era, you bullshit do not know any thing but just barking in dark.
      Now listen if Hama’s just just defend themselves which is not easy against the Israilies bombers and rockets and latest technology that they owned from America then Hama’s is terrorist, what you will call Israel Are they not a terrorist? or terrorist is too small word for them, The Nazi’s were greatest of all and we salute them that they killed them like flies and they deserve that and need more to be done to them.
      They are killing innocent Children, Elders why they targeting residential Areas like Schools, Hospitals and where are Human Rights activist and blowdy UN they all stitched their mouths when it comes to Israel and America because they get lucrative benefits from them under table, where is American and British Press?
      All bloody drama UN, Human Rights nothing, just 1 formula “Might is right” applied now a days to the World.
