Bannsiders cash in again!

BT Coleraine

Coleraine has landed another welcome cash windfall!

The Bannsiders had to charter a flight to Slovenia for Thursday’s famous Europa League victory against NK Maribor.

Initially, it was believed the club would have to foot the entire bill out of payments due to them for qualifying.

But UEFA, because they do not want anyone using commercial flights due to the COVID issues, has agreed to subsidise all trips.

Although it still cost the club a considerable of money for the midweek trip, UEFA’s gesture is nevertheless certainly welcome.

The subsidy is estimated in the region of 40,000 Euros.

On top of that, Coleraine – and every Premiership club – are to receive a further £20,625 after FIFA decided to release cash to all its member Associations.

In turn the Irish Football Association is giving each top-flight club a similar payout.

By qualifying and subsequently winning two ties – with the draw for the second qualifying round taking place on Monday – the Bannsiders have earned an estimated 660,000 Euro’s!
