By reaching the final of the African Football League (AFL), Mamelodi Sundowns has secured a minimum of R56 million from the league.

The Brazilians held Egyptian champions Al Ahly to a 0-0 tie on Wednesday and advanced with a 1-0 aggregate triumph. As finalists, Sundowns and Wydad, who defeated Esperance in the other semi-final, will each win $4 million.

Sundowns, on the other hand, is aiming for the top reward of R74 million, which they may win if they defeat Wydad and become the inaugural AFL champions.
