Manchester City disappointingly exited last season’s Champions League in the Round of 16 at the hands of an exciting Monaco team, but earned a pretty penny from their involvement in Europe’s leading club competition.
The Blues earned a total of €50,204,000, as revealed in UEFA’s financial distribution document released today.
The revenue breakdown is as follows:
Participation bonus: €12.7m
Performance bonus: €4.95m
Market pool: €24.55m
Round of 16: €6m
City received the third-highest income of the four English clubs in the 2016/17 Champions League, with Premier League champions Leicester netting a cool €81.68m, their status as champions entitling them to a bigger cut of the Market pool. Arsenal earned €64.57m, while Tottenham took in €43.28m.
The highest earners of the overall competition were Juventus who earned a staggering €110.43m, even more than winners Real Madrid who profited to the tune of €81.05m.
