This is the money that Real Madrid gets for going to the semifinals and what they can still win

It was an agonizing night but the whites achieved their goal and are now in the quarterfinals. A pass that not only represents a sports prize but also a considerable financial income.

How much money does Real Madrid get for their place in the Champions League quarterfinals?

According to data provided by UEFA at the start of the new season, each of the 32 clubs that have reached the group stage receives 15.64 million euros, divided into an initial payment of 14.8 million euros and a balance of 840,000 euros.

How much does each team earn for winning or drawing a Champions League match in the group stage?

Once the group stage has started, several million euros are at stake in each match. Specifically, each club receives:

– 2.8 million euros for each victory.

– 930,000 euros for each tie.

As for each tie around one million euros remains undistributed compared to if a victory had had to be paid, this undistributed amount generates a type of “pot” and is redistributed among all the clubs in the group stage proportionally to their victories.

UEFA Champions League: prizes for passing the phase

Once the group stage is over, the knockout stage begins. And here the prizes begin to be more succulent. Thus, we have:

– Go to the round of 16 (1/8) final: 9.6 million euros per club.

– Go to the quarterfinals (1/4) finals: 10.6 million euros per club.

– Go to the semi-finals: 12.5 million euros per club.

– Go to the final: 15.5 million euros per club.

– Be champion: The team that lifts the UEFA Champions League trophy (or commonly still called the European Cup) will receive an additional 4.5 million euros.

That is, as the payments are cumulative, the team that wins the Champions League receives an income close to 80 million just for sporting merits: 15 million for participating, 50 million euros for going through the playoffs and between 12-18 million for the victories. and group stage ties.

That is to say, Real Madrid pockets the not inconsiderable amount of 10.6 million euros after passing in extremis against a Leipzig that deserved more. An amount that must be added to the 79,892,421 million euros that Ancelotti's men had already pocketed before reaching the quarterfinals. And the fact is that the almost €42M achieved between the total number of victories (€16.8M); plus the pass to the round of 16 (€9.8M); plus the €15.6M for playing the group stage, the club chaired by Florentino Pérez adds more than €36.38M for the maximum of the succulent amounts that are distributed by coefficients (the accumulated performance in the last ten years). Real Madrid is the leader of the ranking so it takes the maximum possible.
