With Liverpool reaching the final of the 2021/22 Champions League season, a lot had been said about the Premier League clubs in the competition.
The Reds went 1-0 down to Real Madrid in the game but the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United, and Manchester City were in the competition before in the earlier stages.
According to Twitter’s very own football finance expert Swiss Ramble, every club that participated in the group stage of the competition was guaranteed a sum of €15.6million, with each win in the group stage worth an additional €2.8million and each draw worth €930,000.
Teams that qualified for the round of 16 received €9.6million, for the quarter-final, €10.6million, and for the semi-final, a further €12.5million. The team that lost in the final, Liverpool, added €15.5million to their total, while the winners Real Madrid banked €20million.
The reports estimate that €68.1million in TV revenue was shared between the four Premier League clubs in 2021-22, with half of that money split based on the four teams’ Premier League placing the previous season and the other half divvied up based on their progress in the 2021-22 Champions League.
