The Black Stars of Ghana will pocket $4.5 million in prize money if they are able to win the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

The Confederation of African Football confirmed in April 2019 that a total of $14.2 million would be shared between the best eight teams at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in the form of prize money.

If a team gets knocked out from the quarter-final, such a country will be rewarded with $800,000.

The beaten semi-finalists who contest the third-place play-off will share $4m, with each getting $2m.

The 2019 AFCON final is a $7m game and the winners will be paid $4.5m with the runners-up pocketing $2.5m.
