Exact FA Cup prize money won by every club as Man City face Man Utd in final

Then there were two. This season’s FA Cup began on the first weekend of August with 416 clubs competing in the extra preliminary round and will conclude at Wembley this afternoon when Premier League champions Manchester City meet rivals United.

And while the minnows who triumphed in the opening qualifying round banked £1,125 for their work, the eventual victors later today will end up banking £3.9m from the FA’s prize fund.

That may not be a huge sum compared to the estimated £170m City have earned for winning the Premier League and the more than £100m they banked for winning last season’s Champions League - but the revenue split from a total pot worth just under £20m is far more balanced for those lower down the pyramid.

It has been a campaign full of shocks - from Championship Coventry City’s run to the semi-finals and their almost historic comeback against United, to Maidstone shocking Ipswich at Portman Road.

Here is the complete guide to this season’s FA Cup prize money from those opening games involving teams in the eighth division to the big prize being fought for by Manchester’s biggest rivals.
