The FAI Board of Management have confirmed the prize money allocated to the 2010 Airtricity Premier and First Divisions.

The combined total for both divisions totals €911,000; with top prize in each division is €200,000 (Premier Division) and €50,000 (First Division) respectively.

In a statement released yesterday (March 5th), the FAI confirmed; “Despite a 25% reduction in budgeted wage costs at clubs, this year's prize fund will maintain much of the increase that was made in 2009, as well as remaining 11% higher than in 2008 and 128% higher than before the FAI took over the management of the Airtricity League.
Prize money in the Airtricity League Premier Division will stand at €700,000 in 2010, while €161,000 will be allocated to Airtricity League First Division clubs. An additional €50,000 in live television money brings the total fund to €911,000.”
