Champions To Receive Almost $50,000 as CPL Prize Money

CPL Prize Money

Prize money for the recently started Cambodian Premier League has been announced in a document released to clubs by the CPL. And with the figures released it looks like being a bumper year for those who hit the highs this season.

As well as large cash prizes for the top 4 in the CPL, there are a number of individual awards ranging from best coach, even down to best referee, something not previously seen in Cambodian football.

The news comes on the back of a number of sponsorship deals announced by the CPL, which one assumes has gone towards the pot.

How much do you get for winning the Cambodian Premier League?

You get $47,500 for winning the Cambodian Premier League, which drops almost half if you finish second and drop to $15,000 if you finish fourth.

  • Champions – $47,500
  • Runner-up – $25,000
  • 3rd place – $17,500
  • 4th place – $15,000

This means that unlike other leagues, such as the English Premier League, you do not get prize merely for merely taking part. As things stand it is understood there is no paid broadcasting deal for the CPL

Individual CPL prize money

The CPL are also offering a swath of individual prizes, which range from $1000 – $2500 and even include a “best referee team” award.

  • Best referee team $2500
  • Fair play team (best disciplinary record) $2,500
  • Best goalkeeper $1000
  • Best coach $1000
  • Top scorer $1000
  • Best player $1000
  • Best hosting team $2000

It is not known exactly what “best hosting team” means, but one assumes it probably translate as best match day experience (see below). 

What other CPL prizes will be offered?

Aside from the aforementioned, which will receive cash, there will also be other awards, presumably presented at the end of season CPL awards, which will consist of trophies, rather than USD.

You can read about the CPL awards here.

  • Team of the season (11 players)
  • \Best young players
  • Best attendance
  • Best pitch
  • Best attendance
  • Best match day experience

Alas, once again no “goal of the year”. Which last year of course would have been won by Bruno of Next Step FC.

And the CPL 2 prize fund?

This has as of yet not been released to clubs, but with teams 6-10 of CPL 1  not receiving anything one would assume it will be considerably smaller, if offered at all.

Yet on the bright side and considering the Cambodian League Cup did not even pay expenses, let alone prize money, this is indeed a step in the right direction for the clubs taking part in the CPL.
