The UEFA Champions League is a great competition in which top European sides fight for the glory but also to strengthen their accounts.
The importance of this international competition for clubs is definitely relevant not only for a club like Roma but for the entire world of soccer. Real Madrid collected another victory a few days ago against Liverpool in Kiev demonstrating their ability to cope with pressure and the immense technique of their roster.
Although the ‘Blancos’ celebrated their fourth cup in the past five years, Florentino Perez‘s club is not the one that earned the most in the period that goes from 2012 to nowadays.
According to the data meticulously provided by the Italian outlet ‘Calcio e Finanza’, Real Madrid’s revenue from the UEFA Champions League suffered a reduction due to the contemporary presence of other three Spanish sides in this European tournament.
This is the reason why, in the span 2012-2018, Juventus is the club that earned the most, €462 million with an average per season of €77m. Agnelli‘s side is ahead of Real Madrid (€406.7m), and PSG (€342.8m).
The Giallorossi sit in the 10th position of this ranking having collected €209 million since 2012. This represents an enormous amount for the club of the Italian capital. Pallotta‘s side is struggling to diversify their revenue stream albeit the situation seems to be improving thanks to the new remunerative sponsorship deal recently signed with Qatar Airways.
Roma, therefore, made an average of €52.2 million per season thanks to the participation in the Champions League. The incredible performances of Di Francesco‘s crew in the edition 2017-18 brought extra €81 million in the Roma coffers. Revenue from the stadium is not taken into consideration.
