Full List of U.S. Youth Soccer Clubs that Received FIFA Solidarity Payments from 2019 Women’s World Cup

The following list of youth soccer clubs – also categorized as “Training Clubs” – received funds noted from FIFA’s 2019 Women’s World Cup Solidarity Fund.

According to FIFA, Training Clubs shared 50% of the overall funds allocated, while “Releasing Clubs” (clubs where the players in the World Cup were currently rostered) received the other 50%.

Training clubs were defined as those that trained these players between the ages of 12 and 22, with each club listed here supplying FIFA with an application making their claims to players who participated in the World Cup. Note that those players were not necessarily on the United States’ roster, but could be players representing other countries who had played for these clubs as youth.

The total amount of $8.46 million across the entire Fund was split evenly into two separate pots. The calculation of the exact amounts received by all eligible clubs took into consideration the number of days that each World Cup team participated in the tournament, starting from the beginning of the preparation phase May 24, 2019 until one day after the team exited the tournament. It was not relevant whether or not the player actually played in any given match.

As a condition on receiving the funds, FIFA confirmed the clubs had to sign a pledge that those funds would only be used on women’s/girls soccer.
