The FA Cup, which boasts the best tradition, is ‘honor’ rather than ‘money’.
The top topic of the 2022-2023 season FA Cup Round 5 (round of 16) is Grimsby Town, a 4th division team, advancing to the quarterfinals. On the 2nd (hereafter Korean time), Grimsby produced a great change by beating Southampton of the English Premier League (EPL) 2-1 on an expedition.
The FA Cup participation allowance is also a hot topic. It’s practically a pittance for EPL teams. The winners of round 5, such as Manchester United and Man City, are paid £225,000 (approximately 350 million won).
Antoni Martial (Man United), who is always attracting attention for his high ransom compared to his performance, has a weekly wage of 250,000 pounds (approximately 400 million won). That’s not enough to pay Martial’s weekly wages.먹튀검증
On the other hand, teams that failed to advance to the quarter-finals, such as Tottenham, which reached Southampton and Sheffield United in the second division, receive 120,000 pounds (approximately 190 million won).
But Grimsby is different. John McArty, the highest earner, earns only £4,100 a week (about 6.4 million won).
Grimsby’s £225,000 is a huge bonus. As they are in 16th place in the 4th division, it is expected to open up new opportunities next season in terms of finance.
Grimsby will meet EPL’s Brighton in the quarterfinals on the 19th. If another miracle occurs, the participation fee rises to 450,000 pounds (approximately 710 million won).
