CECAFA prize money announced

28 May 2014, 10:14

Nairobi - The Sudanese government has revealed prizes for winners at the ongoing Council for East and Central African Football Associations (CECAFA) Nile Basin tournament in Khartoum, Sudan.

Winners of this year's tournament would walk away with $30 000 (about Shs2.5million), losing finalists will pocket $20 000 (about Kshs.1.72million) while second third team receives $10 000(about Kshs860 000) respectively.

Former Premiership champions, AFC Leopards, are representing Kenya.

They are now among the favourites to claim the top prize.

The prize money seems to have motivated the side whose form was poor initially but has turned around following two convincing victories against Tanzania's Mbeya City, whom they beat 2-1.

They later dismissed Rwanda's Etincelles Football Club, whom they thrashed 2-0.

The two victories have left AFC Leopards as the Group B log leaders while Tanzania's Mbeya City lies second,  Entincelles of Rwanda on third spot.

Academie Tchite of Burundi anchors the log.
