In a significant financial boost for Arsenal, they have already secured a whopping £31 million in Champions League prize money after confirming their place in the round of 16. The North London club’s position atop Group B is secured following a resounding 6-0 victory over Lens.
Under the UEFA distribution model for the 2023/24 season, Arsenal’s advancement to the round of 16 has earned them £8.3 million. This prize fund is in addition to the £13.5 million reward for progressing to the group stage.
Each of Arsenal’s four wins in the group stage was worth £2.4 million in prize money, contributing an extra £9.6 million to their earnings. With one more group stage match against PSV on the horizon, Arsenal could potentially increase their earnings even further. A win would add £2.4 million to their prize pool, while a draw is valued at £800,000.
In total, Arsenal has already accumulated £31 million from UEFA’s prize pool for their European progress this season. This figure excludes any additional market pool payments based on UK broadcasting rights or additional coefficient payments.
Currently, Arsenal ranks 14th in UEFA’s 10-year coefficient table. The lowest-ranked team in the tournament earns around £1 million, while the top-ranked team receives £32 million. As Arsenal advances through the Champions League’s knockout stages, their prize pool will continue to grow. A quarter-final berth, for instance, would earn the club an extra £9.1 million each.
Should Arsenal reach the semi-finals, they would pocket £10.7 million, and finalists are each awarded £13.4 million. This financial windfall is a testament to Arsenal’s performance and progress in this season’s Champions League, providing a welcome financial injection to the club.
