UEFA Reveal How Much Money Newcastle United Made From Europa League
UEFA have announced details of where they have shared their £200m+ out between all the clubs competing in last season’s Europa League
Various formulas are used to dictate what each club gets but these are the major factors;
The further you go in the competition the bigger the bonus.
The stronger (richer) your country’s TV deal is, then the more that nation’s clubs will get.
The better the other clubs from your country do, the more they get and the less you get.
So how much did England’s four contestants make (paid by UEFA) from the Europa League last season?
Newcastle United: €5,302,106 (around £4.5m)
Thanks to the various calculations it was actually Turkish club Fenerbahce who walked away with the most dosh if not the glory, pocketing €11,181,270, thanks to the failure of other Turkish clubs etc.
In contrast, the fact Newcastle were one of three English clubs to get to the quarter finals worked against them, though at least they managed to get a fraction more than Liverpool.
Newcastle’s total was made up of a number of parts and by qualifying for the quarter-finals it gave them an extra €450,000, though Chelsea picked up a €5m bonus for winning the trophy as part of their overall total.
Not peanuts but not great riches either for Newcastle, though unlike Mike Ashley and Alan Pardew, a competition that we are in with a chance of winning has the fans clamouring for more….
Not, Alan Pardew’s ‘Thank God we aren’t in Europe this year’. If we aren’t here to dream of glory then what is the point?
