Performances bonuses for Banyana players

Banyana are looking to win the competition for the first time in their history and, should they do this, the players will share a performance bonus of R2 520 000, which is R160 000 per player. 

The senior women's team, who have finished as runners up in the competition four times, will share a performance bonus of R1 575 000, which is R75 000 a player, if they come second again.

A third-place finish would see the players sharing a performance bonus of R1 260 000, which is R60 000 a player.

Going into the tournament, the participation fee for the players stands at R840 000. That's R40 000 a player, so there's a lot more to play for when it comes to bonuses.

Finishing in the top three guarantees Banyana a spot in next year's FIFA World Cup, set to be played in France.

Having qualified for the Olympics on two occasions previously, Banyana are now looking book themselves a spot at the World Cup for the first time.

They certainly have a squad with loads of potential to achieve the goal.
