Champions League Final 2021: prize money

As stated by UEFA, the European Leagues' net revenue is €2.73bn. 93.5% of this money asset goes to the participating clubs, while 6.5% stays in the House of the European football. The complete amount available is €2.55bn, of which €2.04bn is then distributed to the clubs competing in the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Super Cup, and the left €510m goes to the clubs taking part in the UEFA Europa League.

Like in any other commercial-driven competition, the League's winner is entitled to the most significant chunk of the prize money. That is the primary incentive for the clubs to compete and perform. But it all starts at the beginning, where for just entering the group stage phase, the clubs are entitled to a startling €15,25 million. The next incentive comes in the form of bonus money for every win (€2.7 million) and a draw (€0.9 million) during the group stage clashes.

It does not end there because the knockout phase is where the significant amounts come into play. Each stage brings more prize money for the clubs involved: €9.5 million for the Round of 16, €10.5 million for the quarterfinals, and €12.5 for the semifinals.

At the very end, Champions League winner Chelsea gets the incredible sum of €19 million and runners-up Manchester City receive €15 million, on top of what they have earned along the way to the final.
