Group Stages £10,000 per win £5,000 per draw = £960,000

Round Three £40,000 per win = £320,000
Round Four £50,000 per win = £200,000
Runners Up £50,000
Winners £100,000
Total £1,950,000


So if we win the whole thing, having played 8 matches, we'll make about as much money as we did from the one game against Man Utd, or from selling Carruthers. Doesn't seem worth it.

But we'd have won a trophy at Wembley, only the 2nd cup in our history (and very unlikely to win any bigger cup). Since when was money the only thing some fans were interested in? And since when was over £100,000 small fry to the lower league clubs?

To be honest, any excuse to go to Wembley and have a few beers in the area is fine with me.

3rd trophy. (4th if you count the 2nd place pointless trophy for coming 2nd in league one) League 2 winner JPT winners and Checkatrade Trophy winners 2018 ;)

Plus it is more than just £100,000 if we win the thing. Surely it would be £250k ish if we won the whole thing? You get £100k just for winning it.

Myself and most other football fans. Don’t do it just to stick it to the man. I don’t like the competition because it’s a shit competition worth fuck all and absolutely irrelevant prize money
When in the situation we apparently are in, no prize money is irrelevant. The Premier League has added additional money to allow their underage teams to play and the prize money for this competition is now greater than it has ever been.
I can’t temember exactly how much prize money there is but literally the prize money is about absolutely pointless and would help us in no way whatsoever it’s that small
This is how the prize money was distributed for last season from a £1,950.000 kitty. This season the kitty has been raised to £3m. and we earned £20k for topping our group but I don't know how much we got for winning/drawing each game. However, with a competition increase over more than £1m it has to be much more than for last season. Each club also gets 45% of match receipts.

Round Prize Money Total

Group Stages £10,000 per win £5,000 per draw = £960,000
Round Two £20,000 per win = £320,000
Round Three £40,000 per win = £320,000
Round Four £50,000 per win = £200,000
Runners Up £50,000
Winners £100,000
Total £1,950,000

As I said before, hardly irrelevant!.
That's split between 48 clubs at the beginning though. Under £2m between 48 clubs is pants.

Wasn’t the original point how much prize money we’d earn by winning it? It’s upwards of 200,000, not £2m/48.

Add total gate receipts net of match costs, and it’s half a million. And what price would one put on another willy-waving entry in the trophies won list?

I do recall going to a meeting at Stadium MK a few years ago when PW was asked this question. His reply was something along the lines of, in the early stages we lose money but in the latter stages it is certainly worth being in it. (It was of course the JPT then).

Just one further point, the JPT was my first game watching MK Dons, a mate of mine asked me if I wanted to go. The next season I bought a season ticket and have had one ever since so if you put that into the equation there maybe others like me, who knows?

Aw, Yeovil 2-0 AFC. What a shame, they won't be going to Wembley (until the FA cup tie, that is).
