R1 Million Afcon Bonus For Bafana Stars

The Siya crew can reveal that Bafana Bafana players will earn over R1 million each, should they lift the 2013 African Cup of Nations trophy!

National team players, the coaching staff and SAFA management have been in negotiations on the matter of win bonuses. 

 

Traditionally quite a sticky area between all the parties, Soccer-Laduma sources have confirmed that players and management came to an amicable agreement on their financial rewards for participating in the tournament. 

 

Exact figures, which we are currently verifying, will be published in Wednesday’s issue of Soccer-Laduma, but it can be confirmed that the agreement is a first for the national team and it’s broken up into three potential bonus stages.

 

Players will receive a bonus if they advance through the group stage, and have agreed to pocket nothing should they fail in this task!  Another bonus will be paid out should the team win the quarter-final, but they have agreed to skip another bonus for the semi-final stage! 

 

Players have the chance to cash in on a huge third bonus, however, should they go on to win the tournament, equaling six figures in total per player!

 

This is one of the first times ever that players, the technical team and management are said to have been happy with the way negotiations were handled, a very good sign going into the tournament, and is a good indication of the spirit and determination in the camp!
