Real Madrid top Champions League income table

Los Blancos received €57.4 million for securing their 10th European title with a 4-1 extra-time win over city rivals Atletico Madrid in Lisbon back in May

Uefa has revealed that Champions League winners Real Madrid received the largest share of revenue from the competition for the 2013-14 season.

Los Blancos, who defeated city rivals Atletico Madrid 4-1 after extra time to claim their 10th European title in Lisbon in May, received €57.4 million for their triumphant run.

Despite going out at the quarter-final stage to Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain were awarded the next highest total, receiving €54.4m. Losing finalists Atletico were given just over €50m.

Manchester United – who will not participate in next season’s Champions League – received €44.8m, a higher figure than 2013 winners Bayern Munich (€44.6m), Barcelona (€41.9m) or last season’s semi-finalists Chelsea (€43.4m).

Manchester City received €35.4m for their run to the round of 16, while Arsenal were awarded €27.2m.

A total of €904.6m was distributed among the 32 Champions League clubs, with the size of each club’s share determined by performance level and the ‘market pool’ – the value of the TV market of the association represented.

Europa League winners Sevilla received €14.6m, just over €3m more than Czech side Viktoria Plzen earned for finishing bottom of their Champions League group.
