Manchester City receive huge cash windfall through UEFA payment as final figure confirmed



| Last Updated:


Premier League champions Manchester City have been boosted by the confirmation of their UEFA prize money from winning the Champions League last season.

Pep Guardiola and his players completed what was arguably the main aim placed on the Catalan coach when he first arrived at the Etihad Stadium back in 2016 by claiming Europe’s premier prize in Istanbul.

It was a single goal from defensive midfield mainstay Rodrigo in the second-half of the contest against Inter at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium that not only claimed the Champions League title, but also completed a historic Treble.

Aside from the trophy itself, and the history and prestige of winning the UEFA Champions League, Manchester City have received a staggering sum of money from European football’s governing body as a reward for their successes.

As per published figures from UEFA concerning the 2022/23 Champions League prize money, Manchester City have received a figure of €134.9 million following their route through to an Istanbul final and eventual success over Inter.

That figure also means Manchester City received the highest sum of prize money among the British clubs to have participated in the Champions League last season.

  • €134.9 million, Manchester City
  • €95.9 million, Chelsea
  • €84.3 million, Liverpool
  • €65.7 million, Tottenham Hotspur
  • €30.5 million, Celtic
  • €21.4 million, Rangers

Manchester City cruised through the ongoing UEFA Champions League season’s group stage last year with six wins from a possible six, booking themselves a place in the last-16 of the tournament and a meeting with FC Copenhagen.

Pep Guardiola and his players travel to Denmark on Monday afternoon as they finalise preparations for the first-leg of the two-legged affair with a team that progressed into the knock-out stages despite group competition from Bayern Munich, Manchester United, and Galatasaray.
