UEFA executive committee met in Paris on Wednesday 7 February to approve a strategy from 2024 to 2030 called “United for Success”. So how much money will clubs now receive for more than just playing in European cups?
The ‘United for Success’ strategy is intended to provide a clear direction and roadmap for the organisation itself and the wider European football landscape.
The aim of this strategy is to empower football in every country. As part of the strategy, the Executive Committee of the European Football Union also approved a reward system for Champions League clubs.
Needless to say, the world’s most prestigious football competition will expand to 36 teams from next season. Each of them will play two more matches than at present. Eight games instead of six.
UEFA will distribute a minimum of 2.46 billion euros between the clubs. The Europa League participants will receive a total of 565 million euros in prize money. The Conference League clubs will receive €285 million.
The winner of the Champions League currently earns 130 million euros. Meanwhile, UEFA will distribute two billion euros a year, to clubs playing in Europe’s most prestigious competition from 2021.
UEFA has also earmarked money for women and the youth Champions League
In terms of annual revenue, UEFA is counting on an amount of 4.4 billion euros. And as the official UEFA statement also says, ten percent of this amount, or €440 million, will go to solidarity.
In other words, seven percent, or 308 million euros, will go to clubs that do not qualify for the European Cup at all. The remaining three per cent, €132 million, will go to teams that are eliminated in the preliminary rounds.
In addition, the European Football Union has also earmarked €25 million for the Women’s Champions League and the Youth League.
