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: 146 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.

In Germany for example there are 4 clubs in the 2019/2020 season with Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen.

Market pool part 2: 146 million euros (50%)

The remaining 146 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%
