FA Cup Prize Money

FA Cup Prize Money

With Liverpool safely into the 4th Round of the FA Cup, LFC - Back On Our Perch takes a look at how much money the Reds could make, from a successful run in the FA Cup?

After defeating Arsenal in the third round last weekend, Liverpool have been rewarded with a comfortable looking home tie in the next round of the FA Cup.  But how much money could Liverpool win if they go deep into the competition?

Every club that enters the FA Cup wins some form of prize money.  Even the lowest ranked teams, that lose in the very first preliminary round, earn £375.  From then on, the prize money for each round gets progressively larger, with the winners of the Cup earning a £2million prize.

By beating Arsenal in the 3rd Round, Liverpool won £105,000, and stand to win £120,000, if they are victorious in the 4th Round.  Should Liverpool go all the way and win the competition, they will bank a total prize pot of £3.9million.

Of course, the prize money on offer pales in comparison to the prize money available for winning the Premier League, or Champions League, but the history and glamour that goes with the FA Cup, means the prize money is of little consequence - atleast to a club the size of Liverpool's.  For smaller clubs, a successful cup run can mean the difference between staying afloat or going bankrupt, which is why it is great to see so many lower league teams do well in the competition each year, rather than the Premier League big boys always reaching the latter stages.
