UEFA has released details of the estimated revenue distribution to clubs who participated in European competition in the 2017/18 season.
The New Saints will receive €800,000 from their participation in the UEFA Champions League. This breaks down into the following amounts per round played:
- Q1 - €220,000
- Q2 - €320,000
In addition, TNS will also receive the €260,000 awarded to any domestic champion which does not reach the group stage of the competition.
The three JD Welsh Premier League sides that played in the UEFA Europa League, Connah's Quay Nomads, Bangor City and Bala Town, will each receive €215,000 for playing in the First Qualifying Round of this season's competition.
UEFA prize money is calculated from the combined gross commercial revenue from the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League, 2017/18 UEFA Europa League and 2017 UEFA Super Cup, which this season is estimated at about €2.35bn.
Out of the estimated gross amount of €2.35bn, 12% (€282m) will be deducted to cover organisational/administrative competition-related costs and 8.5% (€199.7m) will be allocated to solidarity payments. Of the resultant net revenue of €1.86bn, 8% will be reserved for European football and remain with UEFA, and the other 92% will be distributed to the participating clubs.
On the basis of the above-mentioned revenue forecast and set allocations, the total amount available for distribution to participating clubs in 2017/18 is €1,718.7m, of which €1,318.9m will go to clubs in the UCL and the UEFA Super Cup and €399.8m to clubs in the UEL.
