It’s seems rather crass to attempt to put a price on Wales Euro success, how can you evaluate the magical days and nights in Lille, Toulouse and in financial terms ?
Years of heartache finally put to the sword by this wonderfully humble group of men, have not only resulted in our emotional and spiritual fulfilment, but due to the financial rewards this competition provides, Wales have also been victorious in providing a considerable financial legacy for one of the poorest football associations, who last year made a profit of £20,000
Wales have already bagged over £12 million force their heroics in France
£6.4 million for taking part in the tournament
£812,000 for each victory in the pool stages
£2 million for reaching the quarter finals
£3.2 million for reaching the semi finals
The knock on effect of packed houses in Cardiff , for World Cup qualifying matches, will boost the coffers even further, starting with the visit of Moldova on September 5th ,which should be a huge welcome home party .
In the meantime we all have a semi final against Portugal to look forward to….Priceless !
