The windfall Portsmouth receive for their progress into EFL Trophy second round
Pompey are through the second round of the EFL Trophy following last night’s 2-2 draw with Oxford United.
Kenny Jackett’s men claimed the bonus point on offer by winning the penalty shootout and ensured they finished top of Southern Group B with eight points.
It means the Blues are guaranteed a home draw in the last 32 of their defence of the silverware.
The run to EFL Trophy glory gave the Fratton Park coffers a welcome boost.
And already this season, the Blues have received a windfall of £45,000 in prize money.
Each Football League club competing in the competition is given a £20,000 participation fee before a ball is kicked.
In the group stages, £10,000 is awarded per victory and £5,000 for a draw.
So far, Jackett’s troops defeated Crawley 1-0 and delivered a 3-1 success over Norwich under-21s, while they were held to a stalemate by Oxford at the Kassam Stadium.
Prize money then increases in the knockout stages as followed:
Round two: £20,000
Round three: £40,000
Quarter final: £50,000
All amounts are unchanged from last season.
Any game that is selected to be broadcast on Sky Sports is worth £20,000.
