The UEFA Champions League will distribute bonuses to participating clubs in the 2022/2023 season. More than 15.6 million euros are earmarked for each professional club that participates in the competition. However, the exact amount of bonuses depends on various factors, such as the team's success on the field. For example, there are bonus payments for reaching the group stage, the round of 16, the quarterfinals, the semifinals, or the finals. In addition, TV and marketing revenues also factor into the distribution. Overall, approximately 2 billion euros will be distributed to clubs in the 2022/2023 season.

The revenues in the UEFA Champions League 2022/23 are distributed across four pillars: performance-related bonuses, starting bonuses, market pool, and UEFA coefficient ranking.

Column 1: Performance-related bonuses are awarded based on the sporting performance of the clubs in the Champions League season 2022/23. The bonuses are 2.8 million euros per win and 930,000 euros per draw in the group stage. The total amount is 600.6 million euros.

  • Starting fee per club: 15.65 million euros

  • Prize money per win in the group stage: 2.8 million euros

  • Prize money per draw in the group stage: 0.93 million euros

  • Prize money for reaching the Round of 16: 9.6 million euros

  • Prize money for reaching the Quarter-finals: 10.6 million euros

  • Prize money for reaching the Semi-finals: 12.5 million euros

  • Prize money for the Runner-up: 15.5 million euros

  • Prize money for the Winner: 20 million euros

Column 2:

Starting bonuses are awarded to all 32 participating clubs. Each club receives a bonus of 15.64 million euros. Of this, 14.8 million euros will be paid out and 840,000 euros will be withheld due to the impact of the COVID pandemic in the 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons, and paid out gradually until 2023/24.

Column 3:

The market pool is distributed proportionally to the respective association based on the value of the television market represented by the clubs participating in the UEFA Champions League. The sum is divided into two parts: Market Pool Part 1, amounting to 150.15 million euros (50%), is proportionally divided according to the value of the television market of the individual associations and then distributed to the clubs within the association. Market Pool Part 2, also amounting to 150.15 million euros (50%), is based on the games played in the current Champions League season.

Column 4:

The UEFA coefficient ranking is used to award an additional bonus of 600.6 million euros to the participating clubs. This bonus is awarded proportionally based on the position on the ranking.
