Cup win brings windfall

Dale were given a double financial boost following the victory over Millwall on Tuesday evening.
The FA Cup has already been very profitable for Dale this season, with a figure of around £184,500 coming our way from prize money for the first three rounds as well as income from the televised game at Slough. But it was given a huge boost following the Millwall win. We will receive a cheque from the FA for £90,000 for being fourth round winners.
Not only that, with the game against Spurs or Newport being televised by the BBC on the Sunday afternoon, we will receive £247,500 from the FA, with no doubt record gate receipts to follow as well from the expected sell out crowd.
Even ignoring gate receipts, this means that the FA Cup this year has brought us £522,000 in total so far.
