New Zealand Football will receive a $560,000 cut of the TAB's record World Cup revenue.

Kiwi punters spent a record $32.2 million during the Fifa World Cup in Brazil, eclipsing the $30.2m wagered on the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

"Our game is growing rapidly with significant increases in participation at grassroots level and these funds will allow us to continue to support the structures we have in place as we seek to raise the importance of football in the New Zealand sporting landscape," NZF chief executive Andy Martin said.
