Broadcasting rights are also an important source of income for the World Cup finals. TV stations and streaming platforms spend huge sums of money to broadcast the games live, and the rights to broadcast the finals are especially valuable. Broadcasting rights for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups were sold for approximately $1.85 billion, including an estimated $1.2 billion in sales from the US to Fox, Telemundo, and Futbol de Primera.
