Good news: CAF loads millions on Pirates account, see more

The Orlando Pirates have reason to celebrate after reaching the CAF Confederations Cup finals, and their success on the pitch has also brought them huge bucks. The ream has beaten Al Ahli Tripoli 2-1 on aggregate at Orlando Stadium on Sunday, despite a 1-0 loss in the Leg-2 semifinals.

Their 2-0 victory in Benghazi paved the way for the final of the CAF Confed Cup in Nigeria on Friday, where they will face RS Berkane. The Moroccan team defeated TP Mazembe 4-2 in total, thanks to an impressive 4-1 victory at home on Sunday night, after losing the first leg 1-0 in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The Pirates have also reaped decent financial rewards for their performances this season, having already amassed an unexpected 10.2 million rand. Both finalists were guaranteed 10.2 million rupees ($625,000) for reaching this stage of the tournament, but double that for playing 90 minutes in Uyo on Friday.

The winner of the competition will receive R 20.4 million ($ 1.25 million), which is twice as much as the runner-up.
