Liverpool Go Home With 108m Euros

Liverpool are €108.9 million richer following their UEFA Champions League triumph over Tottenham Hotspur in Madrid , Spain , on Saturday.

Finalists Tottenham Hotspur are also smiling to the bank as they earn €104 million for their achievement.

UEFA’s distribution formula shows that Liverpool will get €15.5m participation bonus , €8.1 million for winning three group games , €35.3 million from the market pool , €9.5 million for reaching the Round of 16.

Liverpool will also get €10.5 million for reaching the quarter-finals and €12 million for reaching semi-finals and €19million for reaching the finals and winning it.



Only €4million separates the two finalists in prize money.

A total €1.95bn is estimated to be distributed among clubs from Group Stage onwards.

UEFA last year announced several major changes for the 2018-19 Champions League season and that included around 30 percent increase in prize money and how the revenue would be actually distributed among participant clubs.
