FA Cup Prizemoney

Post by QuakerPete » Mon Jul 30, 2018 4:09 pm

David Johnston interviewed by Ray saying getting through 3 rounds of the FA Cup would be worth around £100,000 to the club. Good money even at these early stages

Sorry but does this add up? if we enter at the same stage Chester do, see link (don't we?) winning 3 rounds would only generate £49,000 wouldn't it? I have been wrong once already today so am prepared to be corrected again!

Yep, bga, 49k if we win the first three ties, not 100k. DJ's getting a bit carried away :thumbup:

If a conference north team gets into first round proper there is a high likelihood they will be televised.

I think £70k was what Warrington took from their appearance a few years ago.

Not listened but surely Johnston would also be taking into account any extra gate receipts, sponsorship from 4 games minimum if we got through 3 rounds.

This would all mount up to an expected 100k, which is irrelevant anyhow as just winning one game has been a bridge too far for us.

I thought I’d read somewhere that prize money had pretty much doubled this year

It has hence 49k for getting into 1st round proper, win that and its an extra 36k prize money. A cup run really would help us massively wouldn't it.

Not if they draw another non league team.

I think we'd need some pretty favorable draws to get through to the first round proper of the FA Cup. Even when we've played lesser ranked teams, we still seem to struggle, like South Shields last season.

It's only 2 rounds from where we come in, it's more than achievable. To get to the 3rd round you need a bit of luck. :thumbup:

That's how winning is done!"

*Three rounds, but the point is a fair one.

When was the last time we won in three rounds of the FA Cup in the same season I wonder?

I'm guessing the first Conference season - 89-90. Runcorn 4th qualifying, Northwich 1st round, Halifax 2nd round.
