That With the Champions League final taking place in Paris tonight, as the teams and fans gear up you might be wondering what the winning team will get – apart from glory of course.

This year’s finalists Liverpool and Real Madrid are keen to lift the coveted Champions League trophy.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds could complete an impressive treble of trophies in one season with victory at the Stade de France, while Carlo Ancelotti’s side will hope to capitalize on the club’s impressive tally of 13 UCL titles.

But you know what we’re really talking about here: prize money.

So what do you win?

How much prize money do the Champions League winners get?

Teams earn more prize money as they advance in the competition, with champions receiving an additional £3.8m for winning the final.

The sums on offer for a win – either for Liverpool or Real Madrid – are huge.

If Liverpool won, the Merseyside club would save a total of £93m from the competition, according to the Mirror.

And that’s certainly a lot of money, but Real Madrid would collect even more.

Even if they lose, Ancelotti’s side will have amassed around £98m in total from the competition, £5m more than the figure Liverpool will earn if they lift the trophy.

So a win with the £3.8m bonus would put them over the £100m mark.

A team’s respective Champions League earnings are influenced by their past performance in the tournament.

Liverpool have reached the final in three of the last four seasons, while Real have won it four outrights in the last 10 years.

All 32 clubs that reach the group stage will receive a base payment of £13.1m plus another payment based on their coefficient.

Each group stage win was worth £2.4m, with a draw £784,000.

Qualifying for the knockout rounds meant a further £8.1m for teams, a further £9m for reaching the quarter-finals and £10.5m for reaching the semi-finals.

The finalists will then each receive £13.1m, with a further £3.8m for the winners.

A seventh UCL title would net Liverpool just under £100m, while a win would see Real Madrid break the £100m mark.

This revenue does not take into account matchday or broadcast revenue, which can inflate the numbers significantly.

Liverpool vs Real Madrid will kick off at 8pm tonight. Watch the action on BT Sports 1 or stream the game foright for free via the BT Sport YouTube channel.
