AFCON AFCON 2023 : If Bafana Bafana lose, they get nothing – SAFA president says

Bafana Bafana AFCON 2023

South Africa Football Association (SAFA) president Danny Jordaan said Bafana Bafana will get nothing as prize if they don’t win the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Côte d’Ivoire.

After days of discussion bewteen the FA and a group of players led by captain Ronwen Williams, both parties agreed that Bafana Bafana will receive US$7M each should they win AFCON 2023.

However, if they failed to lift the trophy, they will get nothing no matter where they get eliminated in the tournament.

“We have to get the team to focus. We have to clear everything – and if they win, they get USD7-million, and if they lose, they get nothing. We want the team to focus and to perform,” Jordaan said, as per SABC Sport.

“Over a period of time, we have settled this team and we don’t want to waste time on discussing unnecessary stuff. I am here to make sure that every box has been ticked and that there’s nothing outstanding.

“We want them to give us the kind of performance that will make the nation to take a deep breath and say ‘we have a team’. I think this AFCON is going to be one of the most competitive – it’s going to be challenging, but I think we have a team that can compete. They must focus and work hard and I am sure everything will go well with them.”

In addition, Hugo Broos and his men share Group E with Tunisia, Namibia and Mali which is their first opponent in the competition.
