How much Liverpool have earned from this season's Champions League


Liverpool sits top of Group E Champions League table with 2 draw and 1 win  in three fixtures.

Liverpool have already earned more than £15million in prize money from their Champions League campaign this season.

And they will be set for a major windfall should they progress to the knockout stages of the competition.

Jurgen Klopp's side currently sit top of Group E after their record-breaking 7-0 thrashing of Maribor in Slovenia on Tuesday night.

The Reds have earned five points from their three games so far, and with UEFA's prize pot handing out 500,000 euros for each point gained in the group stage, it means they have pocketed 2.5m euros from their first three games.

Each of the 32 teams competing in the group stage of the Champions League are guaranteed a minimum mixed payment of 12.7m euros, while Liverpool also earned a 2m bonus for progressing through the play-off round.

That brings their total to 17.2m euros, which amounts to £15.4m.

The Reds would be handed another 6m euros for reaching the last 16, with it increasing to an extra 6.5m euros for the quarter-finals, 7.5m euros for the semi-finals, 11m euros for finishing runners-up and 15.5m euros should they win the competition.

However, the real value will come with Liverpool's share of the market pool, which is distributed according to the proportional value of each television market.

It explains why Leicester City, who reached the quarter-finals last season, earned more money (£73.4m) from the Champions League than eventual winners Real Madrid (£72.6). Runners-up Juventus, with £98.9m, took home the most.

Leicester were the only English team to reach the last eight, with Real hampered by Atletico Madrid and Barcelona both reaching the quarter-finals and taking a larger proportion of the Spanish share of the market pool.

So if Liverpool progress to the knockout stages, the fewer English teams follow them the better in terms of financial reward.
