The winners of the Nedbank Cup final will pocket a cool R7 million this weekend.

Beaten semi-finalists Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs were handed R1m each for their efforts in the competition.
The quarter-finalists picked up R400 000 apiece; teams that reached the last-16 got R200 000, while the last-32 losers banked R100 000.
With added participation fees, total prize money for the tournament is R20.3m.
The Nedbank Cup champions will join Chiefs - who finished third in the league in 2017/18 - in the CAF Confederation Cup next season.
