Scottish FA To Net Minimum Of $15M If National Team Qualifies For Euro 2016
Scottish football will land a minimum £9M ($15M) jackpot if the national team qualifies for Euro 2016, according to Mark Guidi of the Scotland DAILY RECORD. Scottish FA CEO Stewart Regan "wants to use the money to leave a legacy for the next generation." Ireland boosted its coffers by £6.5M when it made it to Euro 2012 and Regan "believes our game could benefit from an even bigger cash injection." He said, "You can’t say for definite what it is going to be worth. Budgets and prize money haven’t been communicated by UEFA but if you base it on previous tournaments it is a multi-million pound prize just for being there and the further you get the more the numbers go north" (DAILY RECORD, 2/23).
