Queretaro board offering players cash reward for vital win

Needing a victory to help the team's survival push, the board of directors is putting its money where its mouth is.
Queretaro players could be in for a very large bonus should the Gallos Blancos defeat Atlas - a direct rival to stay in Liga MX - this weekend.

The board of directors of the team is offering a prize of 12 thousand U.S. dollars for every member of the squad that suits up this Saturday at La Corregidora, mediotiempo.com reports.

With Atlas having a standout campaign, currently in third place in the table, Queretaro has fallen nine points behind its closest rival in the percentages table that determines who stays in the Liga MX.

A loss on Saturday would likely mean the end of hopes for survival, while a victory would mean that Queretaro can continue hoping to extend its nearly five year stay in the top division.
