HAGL ended the 2022 AFC Champions League journey with relatively impressive results. While falling into a group considered “death” with participation from Yokohama Mariners (Japan), Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors (South Korea) and Sydney FC (Australia), HAGL still has 5 points and finished 3rd in the final round .
Returning to the mainland for the first time in 17 years, HAGL’s performance is very encouraging. In addition to the praise from the regional media and the love of the audience, the Nui Street team also won a huge bonus after playing 6 games.
Specifically, the total amount received by HAGL is over VND 4.5 billion. Among them, the Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) bonus is 900 million VND. For each draw, HAGL will receive VFF 200 million VND, 1 win is 500 million VND. In addition, HAGL received a bonus of VND 500 million from sponsors.
In addition to the above hot rewards, the teachers and students of head coach Kiatisak Senamuang also received a total of 130,000 US dollars (about 3 billion VND) from the Asian Football Federation (AFC). HAGL was awarded $60,000 for each team that entered the tournament. In the group stage, a tie will receive a $10,000 bonus and a $50,000 win bonus.
Therefore, after 6 games, with 1 win, 2 draws and 3 losses in this year’s competition, Pho Nui team received a bonus of US$70,000 (about 1.6 billion VND) from the AFC. This figure is even higher than the prize money (1.5 billion VND) of the team that won the 2022 V.League runner-up.
HAGL’s results also helped Vietnam Football achieve 5.0 points, securing the 12th place among Asian clubs with a total of 31,513 points. At present, the Vietnamese team’s ranking has far surpassed China with 5064 points, ranking 15th, only one level behind the Thai Football Association with 1303 points.
However, the gap with Thailand could widen when BG Pathum United take first place in Group G to win tickets to the Round of 16.
