While cricket is undoubtedly the most popular sport in India, football is also on the rise in recent years.
ICC Cricket World Cup vs FIFA World Cup
Despite its massive popularity in India, only a limited number of countries play cricket at the top level. So far, only 19 teams have an ODI status, while only 10 countries have a Test status. Moreover, the Cricket World Cup only features 10 participants, while the FIFA World Cup features 32 teams.
ICC Cricket World Cup vs FIFA World Cup prize money comparison
Given below is a prize money comparison between the two tournaments:
|FIFA World Cup (2022)||Stage||ICC Cricket World Cup (2023)|
|$42 million||₹334 crore||Winner||$4 million||₹33.25 crore|
|$30 million||₹245 crore||Runner-up||$2 million||₹16.62 crore|
|$27 million||₹221 crore||Third place||$800,000||₹6.65 crore|
|$25 million||₹205 crore||Fourth place||$800,000||₹6.65 crore|
|$17 million||₹139 crore||Quarter finals|
|$13 million||₹106 crore||Round of 16|
|$9 million||₹74 crore||Teams eliminated after group stage||$100,000||₹83.12 lacs|
While the FIFA World Cup 2022 had a prize pool of $440 million (₹36,64,07,14,000), the ICC Cricket World Cup had a total prize pool of $10,000,000 (₹83 crore). Unsurprisingly, the difference in prize money is colossal and just shows how big of a difference the two competitions have. Notably, Argentina, who won the most recent 2022 World Cup, received over 10 times more than what the winner of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 will win. In fact, the teams eliminated following the group stages of the FIFA World Cup earned more than double of what the winner of the Cricket World Cup will receive.
