Gold Cup 2021: How much money does the champion get?
Although Concacaf hasn’t announced officially how much the money prize will be for this edition, some reports are providing figures. According to Marca Claro, all the teams who play the Group Stage received $200k each.
However, the champion of the Gold Cup 2021 will get $1 million, while the finalist will take home $500k. The team who finishes third will take another $200k. According to other reports, Concacaf could increase their reward. Right now, it is the same amount that the teams received in the 2019 edition.
In comparison with other regional competitions, the money prize for the Gold Cup 2021 is not the highest. For example, the Copa America 2021 champions earned $10 million, while every participant got $4 million. On the other hand, the European champions took home $12 million.
