World Cup 2014: Germany earn £20m for final win... while players each bag £240,000 bonus
Germans earn biggest share of $576m (£336.7m) World Cup prize fund
The German football federation (DFB) will be handed a $35m (£20.5m) pot of money after Joachim Low's team won the World Cup.
The DFB will be handed the lion's share of a prize fund that has risen more than $150m (£87m) since the 2010 World Cup - Spain earned $30m of the $420m pot for winning in South Africa.
Beaten finalists Argentina will be handed $25m for reaching the final, while each of the 32 teams that played in the tournament will be paid at least $8m.
Before the tournament kicked-off the DFB promised each member of the German squad £240,000 for winning the Jules Rimet trophy.
Philipp Lahm lifted the fourth World Cup in Germany's history, making them the first European team to win in the Americas.
