National cup prize money

My current task is to implement individual round prize money rather than just prize money to the winners and runners-up.

When I first built the game I planned on the reward to be the extra gate money but in 'real life' there is also increased prize money the further you get in the tournament so I am going to replicate this idea.

At the moment there is £2,500,000 to the winners and £1,000,000 to the runners-up. This is going to be removed and replace with a value per round.

I'm not sure what I will do in terms of the European tournaments yet but for the National cup rounds I am going to deliver the following prize money.

For winning the final: £2,000,000
For winning the semi-final: £1,000,000
For winning the quarter final: £400,000

Then the lower rounds depend on how many rounds there are before the quarters but it will vary between £20,000 and £200,000. I shall display the values on the cup schedule page.

Obviously this means there is more money coming into the game but the new youth academy will need funding once I bring it in and I shall be re-evaluating other aspects when I get the chance also - I'm just trying to give you a bit more to think about!
