Champions League Earnings Revealed for Top Serie A Teams

Juventus have managed to out-earn fellow Serie A rivals Milan, Inter and Napoli, once again, in terms of participation money income in the UEFA Champions League. The four Italian heavyweights will participate in this year’s edition of the elite continental competition for the second successive season.

La Gazzetta dello Sport has revealed how much each of the four top dogs have earned by qualifying for the group stages of the 2022/23 Champions League.

Juventus, despite finishing fourth in Serie A last season, will bag the highest income of the four. The Bianconeri will pocket €50M. The reason for this is their 8th position in the UEFA coefficient ranking – the highest among their compatriots. They were also one of the two Italian teams – apart from Inter – to go farthest into the tournament before being eliminated in the Round of 16.

Napoli are the second highest earners with €40.1M, followed by the two Milan giants. Milan have bagged €37.2M and Inter €36.4M.

Having won Serie A, the Rossoneri will be in pot one in the Champions League draw, alongside Europa League winners Eintracht Frankfurt and fellow European domestic champions. Juventus will take their place in pot two with heavyweights Chelsea, Barcelona and last year’s runner’s-up Liverpool. Napoli and Inter will both be in pot three.

The group stage draw will take place in Istanbul on August 25th. The first Champions League group stage games will kick off on September 6th and 7th, with the knock-out phase being scheduled for February 14th after the World Cup.
