The prize money Leicester City will earn after winning the 2020/21 FA Cup trophy has been revealed.
The FA Cup reached its conclusion on Saturday evening, with Leicester crowned champions after beating Chelsea 1-0 in the final.
Youri Tielemans scored the only goal of the match in the second half at Wembley Stadium to ensure Leicester defeated Thomas Tuchel’s side.
Chelsea left-back Ben Chilwell’s goal was controversially ruled out by VAR during the encounter.
The victory against Chelsea was Leicester’s first-ever FA Cup in the club’s history.
However, according to the Mirror, the total prize fund for the FA Cup is £15.9 million, which is distributed among all 188 teams that entered the competition.
Leicester pretty much doubled their total prize money by winning the final against Chelsea.
The Foxes received a lump sum of £1.8 million, which brings their total earned in the competition to £3.4 million, while Chelsea received £900k, taking their total prize money to £2.4 million.
