Revealed: LFC’s prize money for winning the Champions League

Posted by

Liverpool were crowned Champions of Europe last night in Madrid following a 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

It’s not the first thing you think of, but the football club is a business venture for our passionate owners and the prize money is a definite bonus.

Goals by Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi have delivered the Reds their sixth Champions League title – with number five now being 14 years ago.

So, how much will the club earn from lifting ol’ big ears?

Simply put – £17million. This figure is added to what the club have already earned by getting to the final in Madrid in the first place.

That figure then rises to around £66million from the Anfield to the Spanish capital. It’s hardly a figure to stick your nose up at.

Champions League sides share a prize fund of £1.7billion. The group stage is worth around £13million, with performance bonuses also paid out for each match that is won or lost.

For just reaching the final, both Spurs and Liverpool already guaranteed a nice £13million windfall.

It’s worth noting that these figures do not include anything made from television rights. If we’re to add this then the Reds have earned a whopping £98million from partaking in the Champions League this season.
