The Champions League is the most important international competition for clubs also due to the bonuses it pays to the top European sides.
Yesterday’s win against CSKA Moscow is a very important step for Roma toward the qualification for the next round of the Champions League. Roma are in the second position of the GROUP G behind Real Madrid for goal difference but the giallorossi have hit another record in this European campaign. The club of Trigoria collected three consecutive wins on the European stage.
But this competition is also special for the group stage performance bonuses paid for each match. Having already won three games out of four, the giallorossi have already banked €8.1 million from UEFA. This figure is not inclusive of revenues from stadium and TV rights.
As highlighted on the UEFA official website, “Group stage performance bonuses will be paid for each match: €2.7m per win and €900,000 per draw.”
In order to qualify for the knockout stage, Di Francesco‘s men need to collect only one point in the last two matches. If the group were to do it, the club would cash out extra €9.5m. The Lupi will face Real Madrid at the Stadio Olimpico on November 27, 2018. With a stadium sold out and a precious loot available, Pallotta‘s side could significantly increase its revenues.
The Champions League makes clubs rich. Exciting challenges and golden waterfalls for a show of rare beauty.
