French Club Paris Saint-Germain was second in the revenue share, getting 54.4M€($74.2 M) despite losing in the quarter-finals stage of the Champions League competition. The reason for this is that PSG has big share of French television rights money. However, UEFA is withholding 20M€ ($27.3 M) as a fine for overspending.

Spanish Football Club Atletico Madrid, finalist & sub-Champion, was third with 50M € ($68.2M). UEFA reports that Manchester United, Juventus FC, Bayern Munich, Chelsea FC & FC Barcelona (41,97M€) all earned around 40M€ ($54.5M).The other Spanish Football Club Real Sociedad received 17,28M€, not bad at all.

Lastly, UEFA concluded that the 32 teams which qualified for the group stage shared a total of 904M€ ($1.23 billion) in prize money and bonuses. As you can see & understand why, most European Clubs strive to qualify for Champions League & once in attempt to remain at all cost. Participating (& winning) in Champions League is a priority objective & an obsession for some Clubs. The rewards are obvious & very, very lucrative.
