Real Madrid not only secured a prestigious trophy and the 14th trophy for its collection with last year’s Champions League victory, but also helped the club’s coffers. For the victory, it collected €133 million from UEFA.
Today, at the UEFA Congress in Lisbon, where Petr Fousek was elected to the executive committee, among others, the official economic report for last season was published.
The European organisation sent the most money to Madrid, with local Real earning 133.7 million euros for their success. The second biggest amount was cashed in by the second runner-up, Liverpool received 120 million euros.
Bayern Munich, despite being knocked out in the quarter-finals, received the third largest amount. UEFA sent €109 million to the Bavarian side.
Real Madrid received 11.6% more money than the last winner. Chelsea earned €119.8 million for the 2020/21 season, where they beat Manchester City in the final.
The amount that Los Blancos cashed in is made up of the following:: €15.64 million is the base amount that all clubs in the group stage receive. €36.3 million Real received for their position as leaders in the UEFA rankings for the last 10 years.
A further €15.1 million was earned by Benzema and co. for their results in the group stage and €52.7 million for their results in the play-offs.
The last item is the ‘market pool’. This is the amount UEFA allocates to the teams in each country based on audiovisual revenue, which is then distributed to the teams in that country based on their domestic league position in the previous season and the number of matches played in the Champions League in the current season.
