Eagles to pocket $400,000 for CHAN silver victory

Nigeria’s Home-based Super Eagles, placed second at the just-concluded African Nations Championship (CHAN) in Morocco will earn the sum of $400,000 and not $750,000, as the Confederation of African Football (CAF) officially released the cash entitlements of all teams that participated at the Championship.
Official figures have now shown that hosts and champions Morocco will pocket the sum of $750,000, with silver medalists Nigeria to earn $400,000 and semi finalists Sudan (eventual bronze medalists) and Libya to pocket the sum of $250,000 each.
The four teams that crashed out at the quarter final stage, viz Namibia, Zambia, Angola and Congo will each be $175,000 richer, while the third placed teams in each of the four preliminary groups will get $125,000 each.
The fourth-placed teams in each of the four groups will smile to the bank with $100,000.
“CAF has spread the monies in such a way that each of the 16 participating teams at the finals would benefit. No team has received its share yet, but once the finance and audit people conclude their work in a number of weeks, the teams would be paid,” NFF President Amaju Pinnick, a Member of both the CAF Executive Committee and the CAF Emergency Committee, told on Wednesday.
This means Super Eagles’ players and officials, who have been promised 30 per cent of the bonus by the Nigeria Football Federation, will be smiling to the bank in a few weeks’ time.
