Their cash entitlements was confirmed by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) as it was revealed that the CHAN Eagles will earn $400,000 instead of the widely touted $750,000.
Official figures released by CAF show that hosts and champions Morocco will receive the sum of $750,000 while semi-finalists Sudan (eventual bronze medallists) and Libya will pocket the sum of $250,000 each.
The four quarter-finalists namely Namibia, Zambia, Angola and Congo will receive $175,000 each, while the third-placed teams in each of the four preliminary groups will pocket $125,000 each.
The bottomm teams from each of the four groups will get $100,000.
On the cash entitlements, NFF President and CAF Executive/Emergency Committee member Amaju Pinnick said via nff.com said: “CAF has spread the monies in such a way that each of the 16 participating teams at the finals would benefit. No team has received its share yet, but once the finance and audit people conclude their work in a number of weeks, the teams would be paid.”
The CHAN Eagles will be smiling to the bank very soon as it has already been established that the team will get 30% of the bonus.
