Wimbledon top London FA Cup prize money list – but where did Tottenham come?

Tottenham Hotspur were knocked out of the FA Cup in the fourth round this year, after Pochettino named a severely weakened team against Crystal Palace.

Spurs lost the tie 2-0 after an early Connor Wickham tap in, and an Andros Townsend penalty after some bizarre Kyle Walker-Peters handling in the box.

The Lilywhites have made it to the semi-final for the past two seasons, but missed out on the multi-million pounds worth of prize money available if they had made it there again this time around.

However, Tottenham still took home some prize money from their very short FA Cup run this campaign, after beating Tranmere 7-0 in the third round.

Spurs pocketed £135,000 for this thrashing, but that’s as far as their earnings go for 2018/19.

Wimbledon are currently top dogs of London, scooping up £405,000 in prize money from four rounds so far this season (Football London).

The London table looks like this:

AFC Wimbledon – £405,000
Millwall/Crystal Palace/Chelsea/Watford – £315,000
Barnet – £250,000 so far
Brentford and QPR – They have both earned £135,000 so far, but would earn an additional £180,000 with victory in the fourth round
Tottenham/Arsenal/West Ham – £135,000
Charlton Athletic – £36,000
Fulham/Reading – £0
