FIFA World Cup 2018 Referees Salaries

Let's take a look at the FIFA World Cup 2018 Referees Salaries as well as FIFA World Cup 2018 Assistant Referees Salaries.

Referees at the World Cup in Russia were drawn from all the six continental federations that operate under FIFA.

The confederations AFC, CAF, CONCACAF, and CONMEBOL each brought six referees. UEFA sent 10 officials which is more than any other confederation, while the OFC is sent just 2 referees.

Conspicuously absent from the soccer referee salary list are referees from the United Kingdom.

In the FIFA World Cup 2010 and 2014, the referees were paid $50,000.

And this number is increased for the 2018 World Cup final referee salary where referees earned $70,000 plus a match fee of $3,000 per match.
