Super Eagles

If the Nigerian Super Eagles squad wins the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast, they will get $7 million (N8.9 billion).

After a score of 1-1 after 120 minutes of play at the Stade de la Paix in Bouke, Nigeria defeated South Africa on penalties to advance to the 34th AFCON final.

With $4 million already secured, the Eagles will advance to the championship game.

Prior to the competition, Confederation of Africa Football President Dr. Patrice Motsepe had declared a forty percent increase in prize money.

The announcement, which was posted on the football regulatory body’s website on January 4, states that the champions of the competition would take home $7 million, which is $2 million more than the prize money awarded in the previous event in Cameroon.

The African showpiece event’s runners-up will now receive $4 million (N5 billion), the losing semi-finalists, South Africa and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, will each receive $2.5 million, and the four quarter-finalists will each receive $1.3 million.

“In the last two years, CAF has increased the prize money for all of its major competitions, including the AFCON,” stated Motsepe.

“The AFCON winner’s prize money has been upped to USD 7,000,000, a 40% increase over the previous AFCON prize money.

“I have no doubt that a percentage of the prize money will help advance football, benefit all football stakeholders, and support our Member Associations in their administrative endeavors,” he continued.
