62.01

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.

62.02

The provisional amounts that UEFA pays to the clubs, as per the provisions of Paragraph 62.03, are determined by the Executive Committee before the start of the competition.

62.03

From the gross revenue received by UEFA from media and sponsorship contracts (including licensing and merchandising) for all centralised phases of the UEFA Champions League (play-offs onwards), the UEFA Europa League (group stage onwards) and the UEFA Europa Conference League (group stage onwards), and from the sale of tickets and hospitality packages for the UEFA Champions League final, the UEFA Europa League final, the UEFA Europa Conference League final and the UEFA Super Cup:

  1. 4% to clubs not participating in the UEFA Champions League or the UEFA Europa League or the UEFA Europa Conference League group stage are deducted;

  2. 3% to clubs eliminated in the qualifying rounds of the UEFA Champions League or UEFA Europa League or UEFA Europa Conference League are deducted;

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

  4. a fixed fee of €10 million allocated to the UEFA Women's Champions League distribution scheme is deducted.

62.04

The net revenue after the aforementioned deductions is allocated as follows:

  1. 6.5% to UEFA.

  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), in the UEFA Europa League as from the group stage and in the UEFA Europa Conference League as from the group stage.

62.05

On the basis of Paragraph 62.03, and taking into account the running commercial contracts, UEFA issues a circular letter at the beginning of the season indicating the amounts available for distribution for each competition and to all parties involved per competition.
