Biggest prize purse in the history of South Africa franchise cricket on offer.

Tuesday, 20 December: The inaugural Betway SA20 is set to break barriers in every aspect of South African cricket with a record amount of prize money on offer in the competition this summer.

The total prize is R70 million – the biggest prize pool in the history of South African franchise cricket – which underlines SA20’s long-term commitment to investing in South African cricket and its players.

SA20 is set to be an action-packed tournament that fuses sport and entertainment on a scale yet to be seen in a South African sporting landscape. It is set to attract not only the cricket fanatics, but also a broader spectrum of South Africa’s diverse society. 

Betway SA20 League Commissioner, Graeme Smith said: “We have worked hard to offer a rewarding and unprecedented incentive in the first season of Betway SA20. This is a first for South African cricket, we have never had this type of competitive incentive in our domestic cricket and it is a further indication of SA20’s ambitions to positively impact South African cricket.”
