World Cup Qualification a Financial 'Bonanza' for USSF

MOST COMMENTED

Forbes points out that one of the biggest impacts qualifying for the World Cup has is on U.S. Soccer’s finances. According to the Daily Telegraph, a World Cup participant is guaranteed $12.5 million, rising to $25 million for a quarterfinalist.

Compared to the NFL, that is a pittance, but to the U.S. Soccer Federation, “it’s a bonanza,” Forbes says. In 2012, the USSF had total revenues of $60 million, down from $66 million in 2011. That $12.5 million suddenly seems like a lot.

A good showing at the World Cup would also presumably up U.S. Soccer’s sponsorship revenue, as both its shirt sponsorship with Nike, which is worth $12.6 million, and its sponsor agreements through Soccer United Marketing expire at the end of 2014.

    Compared to the $40M/year deal Barca penned, the US has a ways to go.
