Ready to play: Northern Ireland players arrive in Southampton yesterday for the start of their Euro 2022 adventure

Belfast’s four Women’s Premiership clubs are set to benefit to the tune of a whopping €130,000 on the back of the Women’s Euro 2022 finals — but only after a key decision made by UEFA.

Thanks to the European governing body doubling the financial pot from €8m at the 2017 tournament to €16m this time around, clubs, as well as national associations, will now pick up welcome cash boosts, with current Premiership leaders Cliftonville Ladies set to profit most, with a cool €60,000 (£51,600) coming the way of the Solitude outfit.
