How much money Chelsea made beating Man City to win the Champions League
Winning over Manchester City in the Champions League final last night was worth more than £ 95million in cash prizes for Chelsea, with the team set to share a £ 10million bonus after becoming Kings of Europe for the second time in the club’s history.
The 1-0 came thanks to Kai Havertz’s goal in the first half and a defensive masterclass from Thomas Tuchel.
And the players, who would have earned another £ 5million if they had lost to Pep Guardiola, are now set to share a healthy sum after reaching a collective deal early in the season that would see the entire squad rewarded. .
While key players will receive a larger percentage of the pot, unused team members will receive a portion of the bonus. This means that Tino Anjorin and Tammy Abraham will earn some extra money despite only competing in the group stage. Twenty-four players have been used by the Blues throughout the European campaign.
Although winning the final was only worth € 4million more (£ 3.45million) than if they had been beaten, their total income for the campaign reached € 110.8million (95 , £ 2 million), according to coefficient-football.
This figure does not include UEFA’s market pool money, essentially their broadcast income, which stood at € 292million (£ 250million) this season. Chelsea will get 10% of the share owed to Premier League clubs.
Winning the Champions League also means the West London club are set to make more money from competing next season due to a rise in the coefficient.
Meanwhile, head coach Thomas Tuchel is expected to extend his contract until 2023, with the option of an additional year, after having his first conversation with owner Roman Abramovich during celebrations on the pitch last night.
