The financial rewards of the FA Cup will be of little concern to both Crystal Palace and Manchester United in today's final.
A winners' prize of £3.4m – a relatively paltry sum when compared to the vast riches on offer in the Premier League – will do little to add extra motivation to a Palace side aiming to win the club's first major trophy, not a Manchester United closing in on £500m in revenue for the year.
The eventual winners may end up taking over £4m home in total once TV bonuses are added up as the FA gives each club £144,000 every time they're broadcast live.
Yet that pales in comparison to prize money of just under £24m earned by Leicester for winning the Premier League, while winning the Champions League is worth over £40m.
Last season's FA Cup winners Arsenal pocketed just £4.3m from their FA Cup run – 1.2 per cent of their £344.5m turonver for the season.
