Manchester City and Inter Milan are ready to do battle in tonight’s Champions League final in Istanbul.
Pep Guardiola’s side are just 90 minutes away from becoming just the second English club to secure the treble after arch-rivals United did so in 1999.
Their Italian opponents, meanwhile, are eyeing their fourth title in the famous tournament having last stood on the top step of European football in 2010.
But whilst the players are competing for so much more than just money, it is also true that the victors will walk away substantially richer than when they started the night.
Let’s look at the Champions League prize money awaiting either Manchester City or Inter Milan with millions set to watch back home on TV.
How much do the Champions League winners get?
The Champions League winners can expect to earn £17 million in prize money for their efforts from the game alone.
The runners-up, meanwhile, will be consoled with around £13 million in prize money.
However, the two finalists will walk away with significantly more money than this in their bank accounts.
This is because prize money is handed out as teams progress through each stage of the competition.
Around £2.4 million is handed out for every win in the group stage, meaning that Manchester City and Inter Milan will earn somewhere between £50 million and £60 million in total prize money from their run in the Champions League.
And this is not including revenue from TV, which adds yet more money to club coffers.
The TV pot is worth somewhere in the region of £260 million and is split between teams based on market value and past results in the competition.
As such, the winning team on Saturday will be given over £80 million when prize money is added to TV revenue.
How much will the players receive in bonuses?
It is standard practice for players to have Champions League winning bonuses inserted into their contracts.
According to the Daily Mail, leading Manchester City players such as Kevin De Bruyne are in line to receive payouts in the region of £1 million should they emerge victorious in the Turkish capital.
The City squad would already have received bonuses for winning the Premier League and FA Cup so far this season.
