PSG’s beautiful run in the Champions League also arranges the club’s finances, which will swell by a little more than 110 million euros. Less than in 2020, but more than expected.
PSG missed the march to another Champions League final in a row and fell to Manchester City (defeating 1-2, 2-0). A painful finish after a remarkable journey in the final phase with dividends against FC Barcelona (1-4, 1-1) and Bayern Munich (2-3, 0-1). Sporting emotions will be added to a nice jackpot for PSG. According to L’Equipe, the club was to receive 110 million euros. The total amount is even slightly higher according to the club’s estimates (112).
It will logically be lower than the 2019-2020 season ended in the final against Bayern Munich (1-0). Paris had even recorded greater fallout than its Bavarian executioner throughout the European season with 126.8 million euros in cash. Despite the decline this season, control from the competition will be higher than expected as the club had targeted a route to the quarter-finals to set its budget.
A journey of 57 million euros
PSG thus receives 57 million euros for its sports campaign: 15.25 million participation bonus, approximately 11 million euros for its points in pools (four wins rewarded with 2.7 million each), 9.5 million for qualification in the eighth, 10.5 for the quarterfinals and 12 for the semifinals. Qualifying in the final would have brought an additional 15 million to Paris (the final winner will receive a bonus of 4 million).
In addition, the fallout from television rights, which L’Equipe estimates at 28 million euros. The only French team in the final phase, Paris will share less than last season, as the Olympics qualification for the semi-finals resulted in a larger distribution. To complete the sum, PSG will receive a bonus for their placement in the UEFA coefficient, estimated at between 25 and 30 million euros.
This massive entry will not compensate for the club’s deficit, which is estimated at 200 million euros due to the absence of an audience at the Parc des Princes. The transfer window can therefore act as an adjustment variable next summer.
