After beating PSG, Bayern Munich won the Champions League and is waiting for a huge bounty for their success.
UEFA introduced a new income system last season in which Bayern Munich, as well as all the teams participating in the Champions League group stage, were guaranteed a fixed amount of 15.25 million euros.
Kingsley Coman was chosen to start the Bayern Munich squad in the final instead of Ivan Perisic. This decision by coach Hansi Flick received great results when the French winger scored the only goal with his header in the second half.
Both Bayern Munich and PSG created many chances to score in the first half that Lewandowski, Neymar, Mbappe all missed. But in the end, Coman was the one to break the deadlock from Kimmich’s tectonic line.
With this strike, Coman became the fifth French player to score in a Champions League final after Basile Boli (1993), Marcel Desailly (1994), Zinedine Zidane (2002), and Karim Benzema (2018).
Winning the final makes Bayern’s income in the Champions League continue to increase. The Bavarian side earned 82.45 million euros for the results obtained in the tournament and about 32 million euros thanks to the ranking factor.
Winning the Champions League also means Lewandowski and his teammates will compete for the European Super Cup, guaranteeing an additional 3.5 million euros. In total, Bayern pocketed 117.95 million for success this season.
In terms of bonuses for tournament results, the criteria are the same as last season. For each group stage victory, the team received €2.7 million and €900,000 for a draw.
By the eighth round, they received 9.5 million euros, the quarterfinals 10.5 million and the semi-finals were 12 million.
In the end, the two teams who won the right to compete in the final received 15 million euros, the champion alone had 4 million more. The winning team will qualify for the European Super Cup, guaranteeing them 3.5 million.
Last season, champions Liverpool pocketed £70 million for the results and a total of 109 million for the awards.
