KAIZER CHIEFS EARNINGS ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD

The 2023/ 24 DStv Premiership was another unkind experience for Kaizer Chiefs. Find out how much money Amakhosi won in all competitions.

The South African premier division football offers generous opportunities to win silverware. Kaizer Chiefs lost enormous cash but still managed to bank from the Carling Knockout and Nedbank Cup tournaments.

Most domestic leagues around the world only offer the league competition and one cup tournament. In Mzansi, we have the DStv Premiership as well as three cup competitions: MTN8, Carling Knockout and Nedbank Cup. Finishing in the top two adds the CAF Champions League, while winning the Nedbank Cup offers the CAF Confederation Cup.

For Kaizer Chiefs, last season offered opportunities to win the MTN8, Carling Knockout and Nedbank Cup. The deeper a club goes into a competition.

Unfortunately for Amakhosi, things did not go well at all. Kaizer Chiefs lost to Mamelodi Sundowns in the MTN8 semi-finals. In the Carling Knockout, the Glamour Boys lost to AmaZulu in the opening round of 16, before falling to Motsepe Foundation Championship side Milford FC in the opening round of the Carling Knockout.

Nevertheless, some money was made for appearing in the Carling Knockout and Nedbank Cup. Additionally, finishing 10th in the DStv Premiership was financially better than finishing 11th or lower.

CALCULATIONS

MTN8 last 8 prize: R800 000

Carling Knockout last 16 prize: R550 000

Nedbank Cup last 32 prize: R100 000

DStv Premiership 10th position prize: R850 000

Total: R2, 275 000.

NEW COACH ON THE WAY

Meanwhile, former Kaizer Chiefs interim coach Cavin Johnson finished his term on the final day of lat season with a 2-0 loss to Cape Town Spurs. Amakhosi were then hotly linked with the likes of Pitso MosimaneJose Peseiro and Alexandre Santos.

According to the latest reports, Kaizer Chiefs have reached a verbal agreement with Nasreddine Nabi. The Tunisian caught the eye after winning two domestic doubles with Tanzanian giants Young Africans. Reports say that Amakhosi are waiting for Nabi to play his final league match with Moroccan giants AS Rabat.
