Look at how much money dem gettin!!!!  I hope de Soca Warriors could get ah decent pay for all dere hard wok!!!

SALARY STRUCTURE 
 
The opening of the 2006 World Cup in Germany is five weeks away, but already the U.S. players selected to play in the June 9-July 9 competition will cash in.

Under terms of a deal brokered last year between the U.S. Soccer Federation and the U.S. National Soccer Team Players' Association that runs through 2010:
Each player named receives $37,500.
Each player earns $3,750 for each game the U.S. team plays.
The team will earn $150,000 for each point in the standings in the three first-round games (three points for a win, one for a tie) it accumulates, with a $2.775 million bonus awaiting should it progress to the knockout phase. That bonus alone works out to approximately $120,652 for each player.
The team receives additional bonuses for advancing to the quarterfinals ($2.25 million), semifinals ($2.625 million) and the final ($3 million). Winning the World Cup would earn an additional $3.75 million; finishing third is worth $500,000.


The 2002 team that advanced to the quarterfinals paid out $200,543 a player.

if some1 had told the early footballers that kicking a ball in2 a goal would result in2 such a thriving industry they would laugh it off
seek ye 1st the kingdom of God & his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you

it works out at about US$600k per player for winning the world cup - less than beckham's monthly salary at real madrid....

its a lot of money no doubt, but by that stage, you would be talking about the best team in the world. if they are that, they should be paid accordingly... think what having the us as world champions would do to soccer revenues in the us...

plenty of people would make plenty more money than that payment to the players...

How much of that money you feel they go get with that group?? If they getting paid per point......it will be a very hard earned and well deserved paycheck.  :devil:
The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today are Christians who acknowledge Jesus ;with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.

        I think it is much because it's on top of what they already getting,how much our players getting for each point?
