The South African Football Association presented Banyana Banyana with a cheque upon their arrival back in South Africa.
The South African women’s national team arrived in Mzansi on Sunday, after their hard-fought journey in the Africa Women’s Cup Of Nations competition.
Banyana fell short in the final of the competition, after suffering a defeat to Nigeria on penalties.
However, on the bright side, SAFA confirmed that Banyana received their promised incentives after their journey in the AWCON competition.
“Upon their arrival on Sunday from Ghana where they finished runners-up and qualified for the FIFA Women’s World Cup, SAFA handed over Banyana Banyana their promised cheque incentives amounting to over R2,4 million which they will share among themselves.
SAFA met with the players before they departed for the 2018 Women’s AFCON and confirmed a bonus structure for the players. SAFA was supported in this commitment by sponsors SASOL.
The bonuses paid, amounting to R2 415 000,00 will be shared exclusively by the 21 players who participated at the Women’s AFCON 2018,” SAFA confirmed on their official website.
