Juventus were given more prize money than any other team in the Champions League last season, according to sportsbusinessdaily.com
The total amount distributed to teams in Europe’s premier club competition was £781m, with the Serie A champions pocketing £56.3m, despite losing to the eventual Champions Bayern Munich in the final.
What helped The Old Lady was the fact that AC Milan were the only other Italian team to reach the group stages of the competition, giving Juve a higher share of Italian broadcast rights.
They were given over £38m for reaching the group stage, and every club that advanced to the knockout stages was handed£3m, on top of the minimum £7.4m given to every team in the Group Stage.
The teams were also awarded€1m (£863 000) for every match they won, and half that amount for every draw.
Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund received a combined payment of £47m for reaching the final at Wembley Stadium,while Real Madrid and Barcelona were given a total of £81m for reaching the semi-finals, due to their attraction for the TV market pool.
