Banyana Banyana players have been promised a whopping R400,000 each (around US$30,000) if they win a first Africa Women’s Cup of Nations title in Morocco next month.
Desiree Ellis’ charges have made it to the final of the WAFCON five times in the past.
The South Africans have however failed to lay their hands on the coveted trophy having lost in all the games.
Three of the defeats came against defending champions, the Super Falcons of Nigeria, the team they will be facing in their opening game in Morocco.
South Africa Football Association (SAFA) president, Danny Jordan, and CEO Advocate Tebogo Motlanthe made the promise during their visit to the players and their officials on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Banyana Banyana will depart for Rabat, Morocco, on Tuesday for WAFCON 2022.
Debutants, Botswana and Burundi are the other teams they will be facing in Group C.
Morocco will host the competition from July 2-July 23.
