Where the money goes

Although the revenue distribution system in place for the 2010/11 UEFA Champions League will only be confirmed later in the summer, last season's figures are available.

The revenue distribution system in place for the 2010/11 UEFA Champions League will be confirmed later in the summer.

Each of the 32 clubs that featured in last season's group stage received a participation bonus of €3.8m plus a match bonus of €550,000 per group game played. On top of that, clubs benefited from performance bonuses of €800,000 for every win and €400,000 for every draw in the group stage.

The 16 teams that reached the first knockout round all collected €3m, the eight quarter-finalists €3.3m apiece, and the four semi-finalists €4m each. Winners FC Internazionale Milano pocketed €9m and the runners-up FC Bayern München €5.2m. It follows, then, that any side winning all six group-stage matches would have been entitled to €11.9m, a figure that would have risen immediately to €14.9m because that club would also have qualified for the last 16.

Last term a fixed amount of €413.1m was destined for teams in the UEFA Champions League from the group stage onwards and in the UEFA Super Cup. FC Barcelona, as winners of the 2009 UEFA Super Cup, picked up €2.5m and runners-up FC Shakhtar Donetsk €2m.

Some €55m was allocated exclusively to the UEFA Champions League play-off round, meaning each of the 20 sides participating in the play-offs earned a fixed amount of €2.1m. As in the 2006-09 cycle, €10.3m was also reserved for solidarity payments to clubs eliminated in the qualifying phase of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.
