How much each Champions League club will earn from the 2021-22 competition
The Champions League returns
After a busy summer, domestic football has once again resumed and the Champions League, the jewel in the crown of European football, is set to get underway once more this week.
Chelsea are the current competition title holders, having beaten Manchester City 1-0 in the Estadio de Dragao in May thanks to a Kai Havertz goal, and will be looking to retain their title for the upcoming campaign.
For their part, Manchester City will be looking to go one better this time as they search for the elusive European crown that would symbolise the dominance they have experienced in England over the last decade, while Liverpool will be hoping to go further than they did last season, where they were knocked out in the quarter-finals by Real Madrid.

Simply for playing the six games in the group stage, clubs will be awarded 15.64 million euros, irrespective of results. For each win they chalk up in this stage, they will be paid a further 2.8 million, with 930,000 euros awarded to each side for a draw.
