How much prize money do you get for winning UEFA’s Europa League?
Although Rangers and Frankfurt supporters are much more focused on winning the trophy and prestige, it’s worth noting the prize money on offer.
The Spanish city of Sevilla is ‘enjoying’ early summer temperatures this year and that means that huge volumes of fans from Scotland and Germany will be sure to get gallons of liquid into them to stay hydrated for the Europa League Final 2022. Wednesday 18 May sees Glasgow Rangers and Eintracht Frankfurt clash in the finale to UEFA’s second continental competition - the Champions League final pitting Liverpool against Real Madrid on 28 May - and there is more than just silverware at stake for the clubs.
Prize money breakdown for Europa League 2022
The prize money for clubs in the Europa League is divided into fixed payments based on participation and results, and clearly the further a team continues into the tournament, the more they will recoup. That said, how big a club’s television market is will also have a bearing on what extra, variable payments are made.
This season, 2021–22, will see either Frankfurt or Rangers pick up €8,600,000 ($9,028,108) for winning the title. As runner-up, the other club will take home just above half of that, €4,600,000 ($4,828,988).
For those clubs already eliminated, the fixed values range from a base fee of €3,630,000 to €2,800,000 for making it to the semi-finals. Here is a full breakdown of the Europa League prize money in 2021-22:
