Conference League prize money 2022/2023: how much does the winner get?



UEFA Europa Conference League Trophy

It doesn’t have the power nor the undertone of elitism like the Champions League. It’s not as widespread as the Europa League. However, the Conference League offers financial benefits that will give it a special touch, especially for “smaller” clubs with low budgets that come from not so attractive leagues, even though the newly formed UEFA competition is greeted with suspicion as such.


According to the latest information, based on data from last season which was the first for this competition, the European House of Football has prepared awards in the same range as those from the previous cycles of the Europa League. In certain stages, even richer. Minimal, but richer.

Clubs that start the competition from the second qualifying round are guaranteed 350,000 euros. In previous seasons, that item in the Europa League was worth 260,000 euros. Just like for participation in the third elimination round (550,000 euros), they consider that UEFA valued that position in the Europa League at 280,000 euros. Participants in the Conference League playoffs will receive 750,000 euros each, while in the Europa League, participation in the final stage before the group stage costs 300,000 euros until the 2020/21 season.


It is logical to conclude that UEFA wants to use the money to draw attention to the new competition and to give it importance. Still, the prize mou for Europa League and Champions League participants are raised for the rich teams to be more motivated and focused on these competitions.


As for placement in the group, each of the 32 teams will receive 2,940,000 euros, 20,000 more than was previously the case in the Europa League. Each victory in the Conference League will bring 500,000 euros and a draw of 166,000 euros.


The prize list is slightly lower than in the second most valuable UEFA competition (190,000 for a draw and 570,000 for three points per game). Winning first place in the Conference League group will bring each club 650,000 euros (in the Europa League, it was around 1,000,000). The difference is also noticeable for the second-placed teams (325,000 compared to 500,000).


Participants in the playoffs for placement in the spring phase of the Conference League (second-placed in the group play for passage with the third-placed from the Europa League) will be awarded 300,000 euros. Participants in the round of 16 will receive 600,000 euros, quarter-finalists 1,000,000, semi-finalists 2,000,000, finalists 3,000,000 each, and the winner will receive 5,000,000 euros.


For example, until now, UEFA awarded 500,000 euros to the participants of the round of 16 of the Europa League, 1,100,000 to the clubs in the round of 16, 1,500,000 to the quarter-finalists, 2,400,000 to the semi-finalists, 4,500,000 to the finalists, and 4,000,000 million euros to the winner. Plus, an additional 3,500,000 for participation in the European Super Cup.


However, besides the money earned from UEFA, the participants and the winner also get money from tv-rights, sponsors, tickets sold, etc. Italian giant Roma won the first edition of this competition, and this team earned nearly 20 million euros.
