Although beaten in the final of the last Champions League by Bayern, it was PSG who received the biggest prize.
According to financial report published by UEFA, PSG is the club that received the most money among the teams entered in the Champions League last season.
Unhappy finalist, PSG touched 126.806 million euros and is ahead of Bayern, winner of the event (125.468 million euros) and two clubs eliminated in the quarter-finals: Barça (100.251 million euros) and Manchester City (94.748 million euros).
If PSG won more money than Bayern, it is because of several criteria: the results during the group stage, the club’s UEFA coefficient, the amount of TV rights. And it is on this last point that PSG made the difference. The Parisian club received 25.5 million euros against 12.5 million for Bayern, the TV rights of the C1 being higher in France than in Germany.
In the report, we learn that Olympique Lyonnais, eliminated in the semi-finals by Bayern, received 91.213 million euros and that RB Leipzig, who fell at the same stage of the competition against PSG, earned 68.675 million d ‘euros.
UEFA also unveiled the endowments paid to clubs involved in the Europa League. Winner of the event, Sevilla FC received 34.606 million euros, and Inter Milan, beaten in the final, collected 61.394 million euros. This difference is explained by the initial presence of the Italian club in the group stage of the Champions League, a competition much more lucrative than the Europa League, competition in which it was then transferred.
Concerning the two French clubs which took part in the Europa League last season, Rennes touched 14.396 million euros and Saint-Etienne 12.036 million euros.
Finally, UEFA has communicated on the salary of its leaders and in particular that of its president, Aleksander Ceferin. The Slovenian received 2,421,539 Swiss francs for the 2019-2020 season which amounts to roughly 2.2 million euros. UEFA specifies that it has not received any bonus.
