#HOUSEYARNS – NPFL CHAMPIONS TO EARN 40 MILLION NAIRA PRIZE MONEY
The new champions of this year’s Nigeria Professional Football League will win 40 million Naira (less than $100,000) prize money, according to the League Management Company (LMC).
Enugu Rangers look poised to win this year’s competition as they are two points clear of closest rivals Rivers United and only need to avoid defeat at home to El Kanemi on Sunday to win a first major trophy in 32 years.
A total of 200 million Naira will be shared by the 19 clubs in the league after Giwa FC were expelled for breaching competition rules and regulations. Last season, champions Enyimba pocked 30 million Naira as prize money, while what the clubs earn has also increased with every season.
The lowest placed team this season will therefore get up to 55 million Naira from all payment centres.
