Kaizer Chiefs have already banked R18 million on their way to the CAF Champions League final and they could double that amount if they would beat Al Ahly.
Chiefs’ historic run to the CAF Champions League final has benefited the club on and off the pitch.
The Glamour Boys are 90 minutes away from creating history, as they could become the third South African team to lift the CAF Champions League trophy.
In addition, they could become the first ever team to win the competition in their debut season (from group stages onward).
Amakhosi’s brilliant campaign has earned them a whopping $1.25 million already, but they could double that amount to $2.5 million, if they were to win the competition.
Both Chiefs and Al Ahly have secured $1.25 million already, CAF confirmed on their website.
Here is the full overview of CAF’s prize money:
Winner: R36.4 million ($2.5 million)
Runners-up: R18.2 million ($1.25 million)
Semi-final: R12.7 million ($875 000)
Quarter-final: R9.5 million ($650 000)
The teams that finished in third or fourth place in their respective groups received $550 000 (R8 million).
In addition, to a lofty pay-cheque, the winners of Saturday’s final will also qualify for the CAF Super Cup against Raja Casablanca and secure a ticket to this year’s FIFA Club World Cup, scheduled to take place in Japan in December.
