Here's The Seismic Amount Dundalk Have Earned After Historic Night In Tallaght

Here's The Seismic Amount Dundalk Have Earned After Historic Night In Tallaght
By Conor Neville Updated

Dundalk have defeated BATE Borisov 3-0 to overturn a 1-0 deficit in the Champions League qualifiers.

Having won the tie, they now progress to the Champions League playoff round. From there, the worst case scenario is a place in the Europa League group phase. Should they win the playoff round, they will go where no LOI team has gone before and will reach the Champions League group phase.

Financially, there is an enormous amount at stake.

Before kicking a ball, Dundalk earned €300,000 for participating in the second round of Champions League qualifying. Had they exited then they would have received another €250,000.

Winning that guaranteed them another €630,000.

Victory tonight ensures they will receive €4.2 million more. At worst. They will receive €3 million for turning up in the Champions League qualifier round and should they lose that (though no one is in the mood to hypothesis on failure) they will get another €1.2 million for participation in the Europa League group phase.

Victory in the playoff and their resultant (and historic) participation in the Champions League group stage will see them get €10 million more.

To put all this into context, they earned € 110,000 for winning the 2015 League of Ireland title.
