HÀ NỘI — The champions of the upcoming Asian Cup will win a cool US$5 million, according to the Asian Football Confederation (AFC).

The AFC will also reward the runner-up $3 million, and two second runner-up teams $1 million.

The prize money for the winners tops that of the Africa Cup of Nations 2017 by $1 million, though is dwarfed by the 25.5 million euros ($29 million) secured by Portugal for winning the 2016 European Championships.

The Asian Cup will start on January 5, with Việt Nam in Group D with Iran, Iraq and Yemen.
