Juventus got the biggest UEFA payment from the 2012-13 Champions League, collecting more than €65.3 million (NZ$108 million) despite losing in the quarterfinals to eventual winner Bayern Munich.

UEFA published figures today showing that Bayern got €55 million (NZ$91 million) in prize money and bonuses, edging beaten finalist Borussia Dortmund (€54.16 million).

UEFA shared €904.6 million (NZ$1.496 billion) euros in group-stage payments to 32 teams in the first of a three-year cycle of commercial contracts.

Juventus was helped to the top by a near-€45 million (NZ$74.4 million) share of Italian broadcast rights.

AC Milan, beaten in the last-16 by Barcelona, collected €51.4 million as only two Italian clubs reached the group stage and shared the TV payments.

Real Madrid got €48.4 million, Barcelona got €45.5 million and Paris Saint-Germain, received €44.7 million.

Manchester United, another last-16 loser, topped English clubs in the Champions League with €35.5 million.

However, Chelsea earned more in total when its UEFA payments for a winning run to the Europa League title were added. Chelsea got €30.777 million from the Champions League and, after failing to advance from its group, added an extra €10.7 million from joining the second-tier competition.

Chelsea had been the biggest Champions League earner the previous season when its title run earned €59.9 million.

Arsenal collected €31.423 million for reaching the Champions League last-16 round.

Manchester City, which finished last in its group, received €28.777 million from UEFA.

The lowest earner among Champions League teams was Dinamo Zagreb which failed to win a match and collected €10.5 million.

BATE Borisov received €10.89 million, including a relatively tiny €290,000 as its share of TV payments from the Belarus rights deal.

All 32 teams got a basic €8.6 million fee for reaching the group stage, and then earned €1 million per win and €500,000 for each draw. Payments steadily increased for each knockout round.
