South African players to earn R520k (N13m) each after defeat by Nigeria at AFCON
Before the quarter-finals match that eventually got the Bafana Bafana team of South Africa knocked out from the
2019 African Cup of Nations, they had a payment plan for their campaign.
For reaching the last eight of the 2019 AFCON in Egypt after a 1-0 victory over Egypt on Saturday in Cairo, each
player had a guaranteed R520,000.
Here’s the breakdown of the bonus payment plan as guaranteed by the South African Football Association;
– R320 000 for reaching the last 16
– R520 000 for the quarter-finals
– R670 000 for the semi-finals
– R920 000 for winning the tournament
They however couldn’t hit the R670,000 jackpot, as their journey in the 2019 AFCON was cut short by the Super
Eagles of Nigeria.
