The International Cricket Council has announced that the winner of the 2019 Cricket World Cup in England and Wales will pocket U.S. $4 million while the runner-up will take home U.S. $2 million. This is an increase from the 2015 edition of the tournament as the champions Australia secured U.S. $3.75 million.

For this edition, the two losing semi-finalists will get $800,000 each, also an increase compared to the 2015 edition, where losing semi-finalists were awarded $600,000. The winners of each group stage match will receive $40,000 each, and teams whose campaigns end at the league stage will get $100,000 each. The 2019 World Cup format is similar to the nine-team edition played in 1992, where each team plays each other in the round-robin phase, with the top four advancing to the semi-finals. The 46-day tournament will be played across 11 venues from May 30 to July 14.
