Harambee Stars players will earn Sh120 million if they win the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations title, Football Kenya Federation (FKF) president Nick Mwendwa has said.
This is part of the paying package the national team has put in place ahead of the bi-annual tournament that is set to be staged in Egypt from June.
The national team on Tuesday welcomed another partner, Betin Kenya who pumped in Sh20 million sponsorship deal ahead of the tournament.
With the government also setting aside Sh244 million plus additional Sh48 million from Caf, the federation will part with Sh7 million bonus for every win in Cairo.
“The federation has agreed to give players Sh7 million for every win and Sh120 million should they win the tournament,” Mwendwa said during the Betin sponsorship unveiling.
Stars are set to take on Ghana in a formality Afcon qualifying match away in Accra on March 23.
Sebastien Migne will then depart for his native country-France with the rest of the squad in May, for a two-week camp ahead of the championship.
Kenya has lined up at least two build-up matches with West African opponents as part of the team’s preparation.
Stars will be returning to the continental stage for the first time in 15 years, having last appeared in 2—4 in Tunisia under the tutelage of Jacob ‘Ghost’ Mule.
