Finishing in the play-offs is a valuable ambition for Stenhousemuir.
Not only would Brown Ferguson’s team earn more than £57,000 in prize money, it would also give them the chance of a much healthier prize pot next season too.
Currently the Warriors sit outside the post-season fixture shake-up and a present fifth placed finish would reap £55,000.
Each position above is worth either £2,000 or £3,000 but the reward at the end is perhaps more important to the Warriors.
A finish in the play-offs and subsequent success would propel them to League One with bigger clubs and a bigger prize pot next season.
The bottom side in league One this season will receive £66,000 with survival equating to a £71,000 reward.
So every point and position is pivotal for Stenhousemuir.
SPFL Chief Executive Neil Doncaster said: “This season’s revenue distribution is the highest prize fund in the history of the Scottish game and a record windfall for all SPFL clubs.
“The SPFL is committed to continually growing our game in the financial interests of all 42 member clubs. A new and improved deal with title sponsor Ladbrokes and other commercial deals helped us to do just that.”
League prize money is paid in addition to parachute payments, UEFA solidarity, Betfred Cup prize and TV money, IRN-BRU Cup prize and travel money, and clubs’ match accounts from cup games at neutral venues.
