Kazakhstan to Reduce Fee for Participation in Its Football Championship

The Super Cup will get a prize fund

The Kazakhstan Professional Football League is ready to ease financial conditions for clubs because of the reduction of their budgets.

The fee for the Championship-2021 will be lower than the fee was in 2020. For top division members, it will be 35 million tenge ($83,650) which is much lower when compared to $119,500 last year; for the First League – 15 million ($35,850) instead of 20 million ($47,800); and for the Second League – 5 million ($11,950) instead of 10 million ($23,900).

According to league officials, the reason for that move is simple – amid the pandemic, the Kazakhstani government has cut the funds for professional clubs and they need some support.

To make future championships more attractive, a new prize fund will be established. Thus, the total prize fund for Kazakhstan’s Super Cup, which will be held from March 2 to March 8, is about 40 million tenge ($95,600). The championship will host four football teams from Kairat, Tobol, Astana and Shakhter Karagandy clubs.

Participants of Kazakhstan’s Cup also have a new stimulus; teams that will be involved in the challenge will fight for a total prize fund at 250 million tenge ($597,500). The top division clubs will be rewarded by direct payments from sponsors. The Football Federation of Kazakhstan will not be engaged in these payments.
