Multimillion Pay Out, Bafana Players’ Afcon Debt Settled

Danny Jordaan, the SAFA president, has confirmed that the federation has made payments to Bafana Bafana players as reward for reaching the quarterfinals of the Africa Cup of Nations under then coach Stuart Baxter in July. 

Prior to the tournament in Egypt, the association had confirmed a detailed bonus structure for the players depending on how far they got in the Afcon, with R520 000 each the dangling carrot for reaching the quarterfinals.

Bafana suffered a 2-1 defeat to Nigeria, and Jordaan told the Siya crew on Monday that the players had been paid after SAFA received the $800 000 (around R12-million at the current exchange rate) from the Confederation of African Football.

Jordaan said: “To my knowledge, we received the money from CAF and the players have already been paid out. But you can check with Russell (Paul, the acting SAFA CEO) to be certain.” 

Paul confirmed to the Siya crew that the players have since been received the pay-out as promised by the association before the Afcon. 

Bafana players are currently in camp ahead of their friendly match against Mali in the Nelson Mandela Challenge in Port Elizabeth on Sunday.
