A BREAKDOWN of how this year’s prize money for the SSE Airtricity League Premier and First Divisions has been revealed.

At the recent league launch, FAI Director of Competitions Fran Gavin announced that there would be an increase of 50% on last season – from €315,500 to €475,500 — due in part to the TRACKCHAMP live-streaming deal.

On the eve of the new campaign, the FAI has released a statement detailing how much each of the 20 clubs will pick up depending on their final league position.

Of the €475,500, €371,500 will go to Premier Division clubs, with the champions earning €110,000 and the bottom-placed side picking up €17,000.

The remaining €104,000 will be divided up between the First Division outfits from €30,000 to €8,000.

The breakdown of the Premier Division prize money

1 – €110,000
2 – €55,000
3 – €35,000
