The winners of this year’s FA Cup will land a payday of nearly £7million.
While the final itself holds a payday of £3.6million, that amount would be nearly doubled with the money accrued throughout the other rounds.
It is a tidy incentive for some of the Premier League’s lower-ranked teams to go all the way in the country’s senior cup competition.
The competition is quickly heading towards the first round proper, where Football League clubs enter the fray, after the second qualifying round draw was made on Monday.
Prize money has been doubled for the 2018/19 season, in a move which will benefit every team competing in the competition at every level.
Winners of the third qualifying round will pocket £15,000.
