Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal has donated African Nations Cup holders Egypt one million Egyptian pounds ($180,400) before their final against Cameroon on Sunday at 1700 GMT.
"This gesture was in support of the team reaching the finals after winning their match against Ivory Coast," said a statement from Kingdom Holding, owned by the Arab world's wealthiest man.
The Pharaohs are hoping to win a sixth title when they face four-times champions Cameroon.
Both teams head into the match at the Ohene Djan stadium following remarkable semi-final results. Egypt thrashed favorites Ivory Coast 4-1 and Cameroon knocked out hosts Ghana 1-0.
The Pharaohs have the psychological edge on Cameroon after beating them 4-2 in their opening group game on Jan. 22. Egypt also inflicted on the West Africans their only defeat in a Nations Cup final in 1986.
"We made individual mistakes but now we have corrected them," said Cameroon captain Rigobert Song, who will play his 33rd Nations Cup match, of their losing start to the tournament.
Cameroon midfielder Alexandre Song, who missed training on Saturday, is doubtful with a leg injury although coach Otto Pfister said he would be fit.
Egypt will be at full strength if striker Mohamed Zidan fully recovers from a knee injury.
