The Warriors are set to receive US$260,000 from the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to finance their preparations for the 2019 Afcon which kicks off on June 21.

The continental football body is paying the money to all the countries participating in the tournament. However, the payments are from the premiums to be received by each country at the end of the tournament.

Teams that will be eliminated at the group stage will receive a total of US$ 475,000 while the winners will take home US$4.5 million. Runners-up will pocket US$2.5 million, semifinalists US$2.0 million and US$800,000 is for those teams that finished in the quarters.

The Warriors have never gone beyond the group stages in their three appearances at the tournament. They are in Group A alongside hosts Egypt, DRC and Uganda.
