sp cup - increasing prize money

What about increase prize money for SP cup winning rounds? (I would recommend at least five times)

Last year, I played six rounds of SP cup and all of them outside, typically with teams which have very small number of seats. As I counted my profit and loss, I was almost -600k. To be honest, I have no motivation to play SP cup because of definite huge loss.

I guess, this discourages many SP players for meaning SP cup seriously. Alternatively, I would rather attend some friendly cups.

look what it's happening right now in SP:

Ever since we increased the extra prize money, the SoccerProject economy has suffered from inflation. We tried to lower this effect, for example by increasing the staff wages, but this turned out not to be sufficient. Therefor we have decided to take extra measures.
- Tax will be held on friendly cup prize money [10%].
- Player wage demands will be increased [1%], and players will no longer accept a new contract within 30 days after they accepted the previous one.
- A Players agent will get a bigger share of the transfer price [1%].
These measures will be introduced at the start of the new season and should enable us to increase the number of stadium advertising boards as soon as they start having the desired effect.

I see and it is fair and have it in mind generally, but really if I suffer a huge loss in SP each year, it is a the best for me to lose the first round of the SP cup and this should be against the whole concept of SP cup.

Don't be scared of SP Cup, Pavel! Maybe it will be You who will play all the six round at home next season. You'll make +800K and You'll be proud of it. :-)

P.s.: SP Cup draw system was changed this season a little bit.
