The last season final was played by Manchester City and Chelsea. In the Champions League, you earn money as you move across the stages, the two finalist Manchester City and Chelsea have pocketed a total of $75.2 million and $73 million respectively.

This was accumulated based on their performance before the final the final is actually the most rewarding stage with each team pocketing $18.3 million, but the winner will net an additional $4.88 million for automatically qualifying for the UEFA Super Cup, a one-off match against the UEFA Europa League winners, Villarreal CF. At the end of the day the winner will have pocketed $98.38 million and the runner up $91.6 million. The Premier League is more profitable than UEFA Champions League.
