York City and AFC Wimbledon chasing £70,000 FA Cup replay prize
MONDAY'S FA Cup replay is likely to be worth £70,000 to the winners.
York City and hosts AFC Wimbledon are already guaranteed £32,000 each due to the match being screened live by ESPN, but whoever prevails will also receive £18,000 in prize money.
Minstermen chairman Jason McGill said progress to the second round would be worth an estimated additional £20,000 as well.
“You could get that amount from the shared gate receipts from another match in the competition,” he pointed out.
