FA Cup 2021-22 prize money: In another dramatic finish of a final, Liverpool defeated Chelsea in the finals of FA Cup 2021-22 to keep their sextuple hopes alive. The club has already won two domestic trophies, a milestone they last achieved in 2001.

FA Cup is one of the oldest tournaments in the football world and around 700 teams take part in it. However, in the end, there is only one winner and this time Liverpool clinched the trophy. So, let’s have a look at the rewards these big teams earn after achieving the milestone.

How Much Prize Money Did Liverpool Receive For Winning The FA Cup 2021-22

Liverpool defeated Chelsea at Wembley in the finals. The score went 0-0 till extra time and the winner was decided in penalties. Furthermore, it was Mason Mount’s penalty which cost Chelsea the trophy as he missed.

This was the second time in the season where Liverpool defeated Chelsea in a domestic cup final, that too in a penalty shootout.

With this win, Liverpool grabbed a shining silverware along with a huge amount of prize money. However, the amount is not very big for a team like Liverpool, but an add-on bonus is always welcome.

Liverpool cleared 5 rounds and the semifinals to reach the finals. There is a reward for teams for clearing every stage of the tournament. Here they are as follows:

  • Third Round Winner: £82,000
  • Fourth Round Winner: £90,000
  • Fifth Round Winner: £180,000
  • Quarterfinals Winner: £360,000
  • Semifinals winner: £900,000

This means Liverpool and Chelsea both earned around £1,612,000 for making it into the finals of FA Cup 2021-22. However, there was a separate reward for winning the finals and for appearing in the finals.

Liverpool bagged a huge amount of £1.8 million for winning the finals. Moreover, Chelsea made £900k for making it into the finals.

Semifinalist Crystal Palace and Manchester City made £445k each for appearing in the top 4.

Can Liverpool Complete Sextuple

Liverpool have already bagged 2 trophies and are in the finals of the Champions League. However, the Premier League trophy looks difficult with 2 matches to go. Manchester City have a 3-point lead over Liverpool.

In this case, Liverpool needs to win both of their games and hope Manchester City lose or draws one of their matches.

The road to sextuple looks not very easy for Liverpool but with the kind of form they are in, it’s also not that difficult.
