Chung Mong-gyu gave 2 billion won to the national team… Son Heung-min, who led the round of 16, the total prize money

Chung Mong-gyu, head of the Korea Football Association, donated 2 billion won in prize money to the national team players who advanced to the round of 16 at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The Korea Football Association announced on the 12th, “Chairman Chung decided to donate an additional 2 billion won for the Qatar World Cup team separately.”

Players were supposed to receive a minimum of 210 million won to a maximum of 270 million won per person, including rewards based on World Cup performance and contributions after passing the Asian final qualifiers, as determined by the Korea Football Association’s board of directors in May of this year. In addition, they received an additional 70 million won each, raising the reward per person from a minimum of 280 million won to a maximum of 340 million won.

The Korea Football Association (FIFA) announced that Korea, which advanced to the round of 16 according to FIFA’s dividend standards for participating countries in the World Cup, would receive 13 million dollars (approximately 17 billion won) in dividends.

However, 7.9 billion won was spent on running the national team for the World Cup Asian qualifiers (4.6 billion won) and finals (3.3 billion won), 1.6 billion won 토토 was spent on repaying FIFA loans supported by the COVID-19 crisis, and 3.3 billion won was spent as a reward for passing the World Cup Asian final qualifiers. It was explained that it was a situation where the original reward payment plan was disrupted.

The Korea Football Association explained, “Thanks to President Chung’s donation, the World Cup team’s reward money for both advances to the finals and the finals increased to 11.5 billion won, the largest amount compared to other countries advancing to the round of 16.”

Chairman Chung said, “The national team led by Bento showed the development of Korean football with good game contents and results in this World Cup, and gave great courage and hope to the people as well as football fans.” In addition to the reward money, as the president of the association, I decided to donate because I wanted to express special gratitude to the athletes for their hard work.”

In 2018, Chairman Chung also donated 4 billion won for the development of football, such as paying salaries for foreign coaching staff for the national team.
