Upon making it into the group stages of the 2022/23 CAF Champions League, Vipers SC has been guaranteed at least $550,000 in prize money.
That is the reward for teams that fail to make it beyond the group stages of the competition.
This implies that if the Kitende-based outfit goes a step further, the money will always increase at every different stage.
Converted to Ugandan Shilling, the above sum of money is in the region of a lucrative UGX2 billion.
The Uganda Premier League champions eliminated African giants TP Mazembe in the qualifiers in the Democratic Republic of Congo on Saturday.
Vipers qualified after winning the penalty shootouts 4-2 following a goalless draw on aggregate.
It will be the first time that the five-time UPL winners play at this stage in their history.
It is important to note that National Associations receive an additional equivalent share of 5% for each amount awarded to clubs.
