How does the UEFA distributes the revenues in the Champions League season 2022/2023?

Part I : Performanced Based Bonuses

The bonuses in part 1 are based on the performance of the club in the Champions League 2022/2023 season, where the following distribution applies:

Performance-related Bonuses
  in Euro Total in Euro Clubs
Group Stage – Win 2.800.000   32
Group Stage – Draw 930.000   32
Group Stage – Rest 930.000   32
Group Stage – Total   268.800.000 32
Round of 16 9.600.000 153.600.000 16
Quarterfinal 10.600.000 84.800.000 8
Semifinal 12.500.000 50.000.000 4
Runners-Up 15.500.000 15.500.000 1
Winner 20.000.000 20.000.000 1
Total   592.700.000  
Supercup Runners-Up   3.500.000  
Supercup Winner   4.500.000  

 

The winner will receive 2.8 million euros per match. The remaining amounts (930,000 euros per draw) will be distributed at the end to all participating clubs according to the number of matches won in the group phase.

Part II: Starting Bonus

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:

Distribution Market Pool Part 1 4 Clubs 3 Clubs 2 Clubs 1 Club
Champions 40,00% 45,00% 55,00% 100,00%
Runners-Up 30,00% 35,00% 45,00%
Third Place 20,00% 20,00%
Fourth Place 10,00%
Total 100% 100,00% 100,00% 100,00%

In Germany for example, there will be five clubs in the 2022/2023 season: Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig, Bayer Leverkusen and Eintracht Frankfurt. If the winner of the UEFA Europa League qualifies and does not qualify via the league, it will not participate in the market pool. Means: Eintracht Frankfurt will not receive any distributions from the market pool part 1.

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%

NOTE: As the distributions of the country-specific market pools are only announced after the season, we calculate here on the basis of the figures from the 2020/21 season (last currently published figures from the UEFA Financial Report).
