South African male footballers

Before the quarter-finals match that eventually got the Bafana Bafana players 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 is 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.
