CAF reveals vast increases in Champions League, Confed Cup prizes

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) announced on Friday that the prize money for the CAF Champions League and Confederation Cup will be increased by 40 percent.

The move is in line with CAF President Patrice Motsepe’s commitment to making African football competitions more competitive and self-sustaining, according to a statement by CAF.

“In the CAF Champions League, the winner will receive USD four million, an increase from the previous prize of USD 2.5 million,” CAF said in their statement.

“In the CAF Confederation Cup, the prize money for the winner has increased from USD 1.25 million to USD two million,” the statement added.
