After the tremendous financial losses in two years Corona pandemic, Bayern is also a great deal of money for FC Bayern in the Champions League against Red Bull Salzburg.
The entry into the quarterfinals on this Tuesday (21:00 pm / Amazon Prime) would be rewarded by the European Football Union (UEFA) with another premium of 10.6 million euros.
After the group stage with six victories and the eighth place in Europe, the German Champion had already taken 78.42 million euros in UEFA premiums in Europe’s premier. There is also a double-digit million amount from the so-called market pool, whose sum is not until the end of the season, as well as viewer’s revenue.
A semi-final push would be rewarded by UEFA with another 12.5 million. The final winner on May 28 at the Stade de France of Paris then receives 20 million euros again. The Bavaria could therefore redeem well over 100 million euros in this season.
With the Champions League revenue, the Bayern bosses around Oliver Kahn also gain scope for upcoming contract negotiations with top players such as Robert Lewandowski or Serge Gnabry.
Board Chief Kahn had announced corresponding calls for the spring at the weekend. He emphasized that the association is now included in the “very crucial period of the season” revenue.
