Aleksander Čeferin has approved the plan for the distribution of income among the clubs participating in its competitions. The total prize pot rises to 4,400 million euros and will be distributed between 2024 and 2027, as revealed by Uefa in a statement.
Of the total, up to €440 million will be allocated to solidarity projects, while €308 million will be distributed among Clubs not participating in Uefa competitions and €132 million for clubs in the qualifying rounds. In addition, €25 million is set aside for the Uefa Women’s Champions League and the Youth League.
Of the total amount available to be distributed among the participating Clubs (€3,317 million), up to €2,467 million, almost 75%, will be distributed among the clubs competing in the Champions League and the European Super Cup. €565 million will be shared between Clubs competing in the Uefa Europa League and €285 million among Conference League teams. The ratio between the three competitions has remained at the same level as in the current cycle between 2021 and 2024.
Uefa will distribute almost 75% of the capital among the clubs participating in the next editions of the Champions League
At today’s Executive Committee meeting in Paris, European football’s governing body also approved the United for Success 2024-2030 strategy. As Uefa reveals in the statement, “the strategy provides a clear direction and roadmap to guide both Uefa and the wider European football community and aims to enhance the place of football in all communities in Europe, preserving the integral link between grassroots football and elite competitions.”
At the end of 2023, Uefa approved a new format for the Uefa Women’s Champions League, consisting of an eighteen-team league stage with three home and three away matches, followed by knockout rounds. In addition to the creation of the Women’s Europa League.
It will be interesting to see the reaction from Clubs and how they budget for this when European places are decided at the end of the 2023/24 season.
