PSG are already reaping the financial rewards of their Champions League campaign, having received significant payments from UEFA.
After spending approximately €300m during the summer transfer window, PSG have started refilling their bags through some early UEFA payments.
As champions of France last season, PSG secured qualification for the current Champions League campaign. UEFA, at the start of the season, began disbursing participation bonuses and coefficient-based money to each qualified club, according to information shared by sports media outlet Sportune.
All 32 teams in the UCL proper share a portion of UEFA's €473m fund, amounting to nearly €16m each. By mid-September, UEFA had already distributed €15m to each participant, with the remaining million scheduled for transfer in Oct. 2024.
Beyond the participation bonus, UEFA also awards a coefficient-based bonus based on the past decade of results. PSG, ranked fifth, received a bit more than €30m, contrasting with Real Madrid's €36m fee.
With these bonuses alone, PSG have already been able to recoup €45.5m only for participating and qualifying for the ongoing UCL. The next payment, scheduled for Nov. 3, will be based on the team's performance in the group stage, with ever win earning almost €3m and draws expected to pay €900k.
