More than €411.1m in payments from UEFA have been shared by the 56 clubs that took part in the UEFA Europa League group stage and/or knockout phase in the 2015/16 season, a huge increase on the €240m distributed in 2014/15.
The 48 clubs that participated in the Europa League group stage and the eight clubs that joined after finishing in third place in their respective Champions League groups benefitted from a global amount higher than in the previous season.
The clubs receiving the highest amounts were Liverpool FC (€37.8m), Tottenham Hotspur FC (€20.8m), Villareal CF (€16.4m) and S.S. Lazio (€15.3m).
The figures in the table do not include solidarity payments to any of the clubs – including those involved in the group stage – participating in the qualifying rounds, totalling €77m, nor do they include any additional solidarity payments made to leagues for clubs' youth development projects, totalling €120m.
