Revealed: The six-figure cash boost heading to Chorley FC after stunning FA Cup win against Derby County
Chorley FC are set to enjoy a financial boost – courtesy of the FA Cup’s prize fund.
Chorley FC pulled off a stunning upset to win 2-0 against Derby County in the FA Cup third round on Saturday.
The victory will be rewarded with a healthy financial boost to Chorley's coffers - with more money up for grabs if they progress further.
Although the FA confirmed the prize money fund will be reduced this season after the pandemic caused financial havoc, winners in each round are able to benefit from a substantial pot of cash.
The fund sees £61,500 on offer to the winners of third-round ties.
That means Chorley have scooped that amount following their victory over the Rams.
Apart from the normal prize money, clubs also receive a fixed payment every time their match is on TV.
As the clash was shown on BT Sports 1, both sides will net a cool £75,000, which takes Chorley’s total for the third round to £136,500.
Indeed, Chorley could pocket the club another cash boost if they win again in the fourth round, with even more on offer if the game is selected for television.
