Millionaires! Sundowns’ Bumper Payday Despite CCL Exit

While Mamelodi Sundowns will have been devastated to lose in the CAF Champions League semi-finals, the multimillion-rand payday they’ll receive may help soothe their pain…
 
 
The Brazilians climbed to the top of the Absa Premiership this week with a 2-0 win over Golden Arrows as Pitso Mosimane looks to turn his attentions domestically following their exit from the CCL at the hands of familiar foe, Wydad Casablanca.
 
As previously confirmed by CAF, any club reaching the semi-finals of the CCL wins $875,000, meaning that the reigning South African champions will be laughing all the way to bank with their winnings worth around R12.5m at the current exchange rate.
 
 
Had Pitso Mosimane's side not lost 2-1 on aggregate and reach the final then they would have been guaranteed about R18m as a runner-up, while winning the tournament is worth a whopping R36m after the governing body increased the prize money ahead of the 2017 edition of the competition.
 
Meanwhile, Orlando Pirates’ exit in the group stages after finishing third in their group means that they didn’t go home completely empty-handed, picking up $550,000 in prize money, the current equivalent of around R8m.
