Champions League: PSG received the largest allocation from UEFA last season

According to UEFA’s financial report for the 2019-2020 season, PSG received nearly € 127 million for their Champions League run last year. It’s a bit more than Bayern Munich.

PSG European champion … endowments. Unhappy finalist of the 2019-2020 Champions League, the capital club can take comfort (a little) by saying that he was the best paid for his adventures in C1. According to the UEFA financial report published in recent days, Paris has indeed received 126.8 million euros for its journey on the continental scene. It’s more than Bayern, the big winner (125.5), it’s also more than Barça (100.3), Manchester City (94.7) and all the others.

The health crisis having gone through there, like the closed doors and the shortened Final 8, UEFA recorded a significant decline in income for its club competitions compared to the 2018-2019 financial year. But the allocations for participants have only been reduced by 3.5% in the Champions League, and 3% in the Europa League. What makes a loss of endowment of 4.4 million euros for the PSG.

91 million for OL

The final endowment, in C1 as in C3, depends in part on the course of the club, but also on its results in the group stage, its coefficient, and the television market in each country. It is on this last point that PSG (25.5 million euros) widens the gap with Bayern (12.5).

This is also why OL (91.2 million in total), semi-finalist of the last edition, is well ahead of RB Leipzig (68.7), which also reached the last four. The Lyonnais are 6th in the endowment ranking.

For the Europa League, the winner Seville (34.6 million) touched much less than the other finalist, Inter (61.4), who had participated in the Champions League at the start of the season. Rennes and Saint-Etienne, released from the group stage of C3, still received 14.4 and 12 million euros.

In another register, the report also specifies the salaries paid to top UEFA executives. President Aleksander Ceferin thus received 2.42 million Swiss francs for the 2019-2020 financial year, or 2.2 million euros.
