Clubs competing in the Champions League, Europa League and Uefa Super Cup this season will receive a share of 3.25bn euros (£2.9bn).

Champions League winners Liverpool will face Europa League champions Chelsea in the Uefa Super Cup in Turkey in August.

  • Coefficient ranking: Based on a 10-year period, the ranking list will see the lowest group-stage team receive a c (£1m) share and same amount will be added on to each position.
  • Market pool: Clubs will also receive a share of 292m euros (£262m), which is distributed in accordance with the value of each national television market.
