09 January 2015, 09:35

Nyon - Bayern Munich earned the biggest share of the $70 million FIFA handed out to clubs as compensation for releasing players to the World Cup, taking home $1,734,367.

The European Club Association says Real Madrid earned $1,297,800, Chelsea's share was $1,253,233, and Barcelona got $1,191,167.

According to the ECA, five more clubs banked at least $1 million from FIFA: Manchester United, Napoli, Arsenal, Juventus and Manchester City.

FIFA paid $2,800 for each day players were on official national team duty before and during the World Cup. The sum was shared between clubs each player was registered with in the previous two years.
