Mamelodi Sundowns enjoyed a successful 2015/16 campaign, seeing them complete a domestic league and cup double, and their triumphs saw the money-rich club coin nearly R20 million in prize money.

The Brazilians managed to swing aloft both the Absa Premiership trophy and the Telkom Knockout Cup, and their success in both competitions saw them rake in R14.25 million.

En route to being crowned PSL champions, they also topped the quarters and their dominance in the league standings saw them earn a further R4.5 million.

Pitso Mosimane's men also banked a further R1.2 million for their participation in both the Nedbank Cup and MTN8, and while they may not have succeeded in those competitions, the club still pulled in some big bucks.

Telkom Knockout winnings: R4.25 million

PSL Champions winnings: R10 million

Q-Innovation earnings: R4.5m
