Juventus earned more from the UEFA Champions League than any other club last season.
The Serie A champions were beaten by eventual winners Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals, but still made €65.3million from the competition – around €10m more than the German side.
This is mostly due to the Italian side gaining much of the TV money in their own country, with FIFA explaining that “monies from the market pool were divided according to the proportional value of the national TV market each individual club represented”.
According to the organisation, “the amounts given varied from country (or national association) to country”.
Bayern – who also won the Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal in 2012-13 – took home €55m after they beat fellow Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the final at Wembley. Juergen Klopp’s side earned €54.16m, thanks partly to the reward for winning four of their six group stage games, which brought in €1m per match.
Milan and Barcelona were the next biggest earners, gaining €51.3m and €45.5m respectively, even though the latter beat the former in the last-eight stage.
In total, €904.6m was handed out to 32 clubs, while in the UEFA Europa League the overall fund was €209m.
Semi-finalist Fenerbahce were the biggest earners from in the competition with €11.18m, while winners Chelsea made €10.7m.
