UEFA has released the amount of money that clubs received last season as part of the UEFA Champions League. Bayern Munich earned a cool €64,391,000 for their trip to the competition’s semifinals, and even though they finished in the top four, they finished eighth in earnings.
The clubs that earned more money than Bayern from the Champions League: Manchester City (€83,853,000), Real Madrid (€80,067,000), Juventus (€76,256,000), Paris Saint-Germain (€70,803,000), Atletico Madrid (€69,665,000), Chelsea (€69,174,000), Roma (€68,461,000).
The big difference between the clubs is the “Market Pool”. You’ll remember that this is the television revenue distributed to the clubs based on their nation’s market share of ratings.
How did the other Bundesliga clubs fare? Wolfsburg earned €50,292,000 for their trip to the Quarterfinals, while Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Mönchengladbach brought home €26,675,000 and €27,164,000 respectively.
A total of €1,345,258,00 was award to the clubs that completed in the Champions League from the Playoff Round to the Final.
