Juventus Earned 27m More Than Anyone Else In Champions League Last Season

Champions League trophyUefa has announced that the 32 clubs that competed in the Champions League last season shared almost €988m in payments from UEFA, an increase of €36m from the 2013/14 season.

Usually the winner takes home the lions share of the money but that was not the case last season as runners-up Juventus were the big winner, earning €89.1m, while winners Barcelona only got €61.27m.

The reason behind Juventus’s windfall was due to the fact that there were only two Italian clubs in the competition and Roma went out in the group phase. So Juve got the keep the bulk of the money for Italian teams.

Barcelona on the other hand had to share the Spanish market pool with the other sides who took part in the tournament, which was why their share was much smaller.

On a league basis, La Liga was the big winners with there four teams sharing €180.6m, followed by the Premier League (€154.8m), Bundesliga (€140.7m), Serie A (€135m) and Ligue 1 with €108.4mh te
