City net massive FA Cup windfall

Last updated : 07 January 2003 By Michael Morris
The report in the Echo today also says that City get £50,000 for beating Margate and Tranmere, £50,000 gate receipts from Ninian park on Saturday and £70,000 estimated gate receipts from Highfield Rd next week City are on a reported £435,000 from the FA Cup so far this season.

A win against Coventry would earn another £50,000 and a further win over Rochdale would see another £75,000 prize money in the coffers.

What football club can afford not to take the cup too seriously?
