Sundowns Coin Just Short Of R20 Million

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. 

Below is a breakdown of Downs' earnings in the 2015/16 season:

Telkom Knockout winnings: R4.25 million

PSL Champions winnings: R10 million

Q-Innovation earnings: R4.5m

MTN8 earnings: R800 000

Nedbank Cup earnings: R400 000

TOTAL: R19.95 million

SuperSport United are reportedly the second biggest earners of the PSL clubs, having banked R9.55 million this past season.

Meanwhile, Khama Billiat walked away with a massive sum of prize money to deposit into his bank account. The midfielder/attacker earned a total or R450 000 at the PSL awards. 

Below is a breakdown of Billiat's prize money:

Footballer of the Season: R250 000 

Absa Premiership Player's Player of the Season: R150 000 

Absa Premiership Midfielder of the Season: R50 000
