Germany gives team financial motivation to win World Cup : worldleaks
The German Football Federation says team captain Philipp Lahm and the rest of the players quickly matched to keep the same bonus scheme that was in place for last year’s European Championship in Poland and Ukraine.
The system only kicks in after the second round, with each player getting 50,000 euros ($68,000) for reaching the quarterfinals, 100,000 euros ($136,000) for reaching the semifinals and 150,000 euros ($204,000) for the final doubled if successful.
DFB general secretary Helmut Sandrock says “the national team wants sporting success in Brazil. And if they’re successful there, it should also be honoured accordingly.”
