According to the newspaper The Team, the club which will finish the season second in Ligue 1 and which will qualify directly with PSG for the next group stage of the Champions League will pocket a nice jackpot. Depending on his identity, the dolphin of the Parisians will receive between 35 million and 50 million euros, without even winning a match (2.8 million euros per victory) or even taking a single point during the group stage.
According to the sports daily, UEFA has three criteria for distributing the prizes. In addition to the participation bonus which is 15.64 million euros for all, TV rights and commercial revenue vary according to the number of qualified countries per country. The sum allocated according to the UEFA coefficient will be calculated according to the European performances of the clubs during the last ten seasons.
