For every club that sends their individual players to Qatar, they will be entitled to $10,000. Those players who made it to the finals or third place play-off earned a whopping $370,000.

For those who made it to the semi-finals, they are entitled to $320,000. The quarterfinal will see players make $280,000 for their respective clubs, while in the Round of 16, clubs are entitled to $220,000 per player.
