UEFA award Real Madrid €88.6m for Champions League win

The UEFA announced that Real Madrid earned €88.6m as prize money for last season’s Champions League triumph

The football governing body confirmed payments that have been made to clubs who participated in the 2017/18 Champions League on Thursday morning.



And it’s been announced on the UEFA website that Real have emerged as top earners with over €88m.

Under Zinedine Zidane, Los Blancos won their third successive European title after defeating Liverpool 3-1 in the final at Kiev in May through a brace from Gareth Bale and another from Karim Benzema.

While they didn’t claim the top prize last season, Liverpool will still receive €81.2m in total from UEFA for their final appearance.

Real’s city rivals Atletico Madrid earned €16.1m for their Europa League triumph last season and a further €31.7m for their participation in the Champions League, while beaten finalists Marseille got €23m.

Roma, who were semi-finalists, received the second-highest windfall of €83.8m because they picked up a bigger share of the TV rights money, while runners-up Liverpool pocketed €81.2m.

Uefa awarded €12.7m to each of the 32 teams who reached the group stage, plus bonuses for results and a share of the TV rights money.

All clubs that competed in the Champions League group stage received a minimum of €12.7m.
