Each club retains its receipts from the sale of match tickets and bears all its expenses. The visiting club assumes its expenses for travel, board and lodging, unless the two clubs concerned agree otherwise. If necessary, the provisions of Paragraph 27.06 and Paragraph 27.07 must be observed. In the event of a match being moved for any reason whatsoever, the UEFA administration decides who assumes any expenses incurred by the visiting club as a result.

The exact amounts that UEFA pays to the clubs, as per the provisions of Paragraph 61.03, are determined by the Executive Committee before the start of the competition.

  2. the organisational and administrative competitions costs, as validated by UEFA and the UEFA Club Competitions SA, are deducted.

  2. 93.5 % to clubs participating in the UEFA Champions League as from the group stage (with an amount set aside for the UEFA Champions League play-offs and the UEFA Super Cup) and in the UEFA Europa League as from the group stage in the following proportion:

    1. 80% to UEFA Champions League;

    2. 20% to UEFA Europa League.

61.05

From the UEFA Champions League club share calculated in accordance with this article, €50m are deducted and added to the UEFA Europa League club share and €10m are deducted and added to the amount available for solidarity payments to clubs eliminated in the qualifying rounds of the UEFA Champions League or UEFA Europa League.
