UEFA has increased its prize pool for 2018/19 by a staggering 62.7%, and the big clubs stand to win big.
UEFA is filthy rich and Bayern stand to benefit. Without playing a game, Bayern is already guaranteed €48.5 million, thanks to UEFA’s new revenue distribution process that rewards the top clubs for past successes.
Next season, UEFA is anticipating a gross income of €3.25 billion, of which €2.55 billion will be distributed to the clubs competing in the Champions League and the Europa League, as well as the UEFA Super Cup.
The lion’s share of that money is destined for the participants in the Champions League: €2.04 billion will be divided between the 32 competitors and the participnts in the Super Cup. The teams vying in the Europa League win the remaining €510 million.
Bayern Munich could win well over €100 MILLION EUROS next season.
