How Much Chiefs Earned In CAFCL So Far
Kaizer Chiefs have qualified for the semi-finals of the CAF Champions League for a first time in history, which has earned them a massive amount of money already.

Amakhosi beat Simba S.C. 4-3 on aggregate to make the semi-finals of the competition for a first time in history.

Sundowns, meanwhile, depart the Champions League with a lofty $650 000 (R9.5 million) in the bag.
