The 2022 Women’s Eurocup will see its financial endowment doubled compared to the previous continental tournament of 2017, in a further sign of the growth of women’s football, as decided by the UEFA Executive Committee on Thursday.
The 16 teams gathered in England for the final phase will distribute 16 million euros (about 18.7 million dollars), for the 8 million euros in Euro-2017 in the Netherlands, indicated the European instance.
This cast, the details of which will be announced later, will establish an amount just for participating in the tournament, and a “performance bonus” for each team.
In addition, and “for the first time”, UEFA will distribute 4.5 million euros to the clubs for releasing their internationals “for their contribution to the success of the event”.
As a comparison, the 24 participants in the last men’s European Championship, conquered by Italy, shared 331 million euros (388 million dollars), an amount reduced by UEFA before the tournament due to the economic effects of the pandemic. (AFP)
