Many are wondering about the amount of money that football referees receive during their management of the 2022 World Cup matches, which are currently competing in Qatar.
Although it is difficult to determine the referees’ wages in the current World Cup, the network “NBC SportsShe conducted an analysis through which she was able to predict what football referees would receive as wages for officiating matches.
The network says that it is not possible to know exactly the amount that the referees will receive for their duties in the World Cup, but this can be estimated based on the data of the last edition of the World Cup that was held in Russia in 2018.
During that edition, the International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA) decided that the referee of each match would be compensated with $70,000 for his participation in the tournament, at $3,000 per match.
And in 2014, referees were paid $50,000 for their participation in the World Cup finals being held in Brazil.
36 main referees were selected to participate in the group stage of the Qatar World Cup 2022, without counting the assistant referees.
The number will be reduced in the knockout stage, starting from the round of 16, as the referees who obtained the highest ratings during the group stage will be selected in order to continue to officiate matches.
The Qatar World Cup will witness the participation of three field referees for the first time in the history of the tournament, which was launched 92 years ago. Three other women have also been selected as assistant referees.
The principal speakers are the French Stephanie Frappart, the Rwandan Salima Mukasanga and the Japanese Yoshimi Yamashita.
As for the assistant referees, they are the Brazilian Noza Pak, the Mexican Karen Diaz Medina, and the American Kathryn Nesbitt.
