The Chinese side will be playing in the second tier next season, with their efforts in 2017 earning those involved considerable financial reward

Meixian Techand have been celebrating promotion to the Chinese second tier in style, with their players rewarded with mountains of cash.

The riches on offer in the Chinese Super League have made plenty of headlines in recent times, with some top talent lured to Asia from Europe and South America.

Carlos Tevez, Oscar, Hulk, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Demba Ba are just some of those to have landed lucrative contracts in the Far East.

Financial rewards are not solely restricted to those at the top of the football pyramid in China, though, with the cash flow trickling down to the lower tiers.

Meixian Techand have stepped from the third rung to the second, and those involved in that success have toasted their achievement with stacks of cash.

A solitary effort from Ye Weichao wrapped up a 3-1 aggregate success in a promotion play-off.

It had been reported that the Meixian Techand players had been incentivised by the offer of a £2.86 million bonus if they were able to emerge triumphant.

Those in charge of the club have made good on that promise, with the money duly delivered on the back of a historic victory.
