Wits CEO Talks Absa Premiership Prize Money

Bidvest Wits CEO Talks Absa Premiership Prize Money

By Soccer Laduma - May 18, 2017 09:24 AM

Bidvest Wits secured their first Absa Premiership league title in the history of the club last night and the club’s CEO, Jose Ferreira, has revealed that the prize money will be shared among the team.

Just yesterday, Wits were two points ahead of second-placed Mamelodi Sundowns on the league standings, however, after the final whistle in last night’s encounters, the Clever Boys went four points clear at the top and were subsequently crowned 2016/17 Absa Premiership champions.

The Clever Boys have now bagged R10 million in prize money, and the club’s CEO, Ferreira, has revealed that the money is set to be shared amongst the team, however, the extent is yet to be discussed.

“Yes, we will be sharing the prize money with the team, however, the extent of it is yet to be decided. I will sit with the board and we will decide,” Ferreira told the Siya crew.

Head Coach, Gavin Hunt, has pulled off a memorable cup double with his side, winning the 2016 MTN8 competition earlier this season and now being crowned 2016/17 Absa Premiership champions.

Securing the league title means that Wits have automatically booked their spot in next season’s CAF Champions League campaign.

Good money for Wits players to share and Hunt must improve Wits when playing for Caf as they dissapoint for the past.

I am not sad.. Our team (Masandawana) has made us proud already in the last season. We will come back strong next season. We can't win everything.. But congratulations to Wits.

The best CEO in the league. He won the league with Sundowns, supersport and now bidvest. Maybe its about time he replace this Mato madlala because she doing nothing to improve our PSL. Big up Jose

It is amazing how Chiefs comes up time and time I all what other teams achieves. That shows you how influential this brand is in SA. I mean no one talks about Wits win without mentioning Chiefs!!! Now even Wits are looking forward to getting the guard of honor from the greatest team in Africa. Yes it's a great honor to be bestowed on a small team like Wits, enjoy the ride, they deserve the guard of honor from the mighty Amakhosi and yes we will give it to them that's why Chiefs is such a great brand.
