All 32 participating clubs will receive a starting bonus of 15.64 million euros.

Part III: UEFA Coefficient Ranking

One part will be distributed on the basis of a UEFA ten-year ranking. Each share corresponds to 1,137,000 euros. The worst placed team receives a share, with an additional share for each rank. The best placed team with 32 shares receives 36.384.000 Euro.

Part IV: Market Pool

This sum will be distributed pro rata to the relevant association according to the value of the television market represented by the clubs participating in the UEFA Champions League and then distributed to the clubs concerned. This means that the amount to be distributed varies from country to country.

The sum of the market pool to be distributed is divided into two parts.

Market Pool Part 1: 150,15 Million Euros (50%)

These are distributed among all national associations with at least one club in the group phase. However, not in equal shares but proportionally according to the respective value of the respective television market of the individual associations. Means: Italian clubs earn more than German clubs despite the equal number of participating clubs, since the value of the television market is higher.

This share is then distributed among the clubs of the association according to their performance in the national competitions of the previous season. The exact distribution within an association depends on how many clubs participate.

The distribution:

Third Place20,00%20,00%
Fourth Place10,00%

In Germany for example there are 4 clubs in the 2021/2022 season with Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig and VfL Wolfsburg.

Market pool part 2: 150,15 million euros (50%)

The remaining 150,15 million Euros are based on the matches played in the current Champions League season.

Also here proportional to the respective value of the respective television market of the individual associations. For example, if clubs 1 and 2 are eliminated in the preliminary round and club 3 wins the Champions League, the market pool is distributed as follows:

  • Club 1 and 2: 6/25 each (6 preliminary rounds matches/total matches of all clubs of the association) = 24% each
  • Club 3: 13/25 = 52%
