Manchester City to receive a huge financial boost from UEFA, Real Madrid to drop to second.

As the Champions League champions and new top team in Europe, Manchester City will receive a significant financial boost from UEFA. Real Madrid will drop to second place.

According to a recent report, Manchester City will gain significantly from a significant revision to UEFA’s coefficient funding system in the upcoming seasons.

The Champions League championship was won by Pep Guardiola and his team for the first time in their history last season as part of a historic campaign that was rivaled only by Manchester United.

The Etihad club went on to defeat Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium in addition to winning the Premier League for the third time in a row, eliminating competition from Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal.

Both of those championship victories came before the true highlight of their campaigns, when Manchester City defeated Serie A powerhouse Inter in the Champions League final in Istanbul on the strength of a lone goal from Rodri.

In terms of their standing in European football and the money they get from the organization that governs football in Europe, Manchester City is now likely to reap even greater rewards due to their consistency in the competition along with their recent victory.

According to a recent article by Martyn Ziegler of The Times, Manchester City will stand to benefit the most from UEFA’s new Champions League funding formula starting with the 2024–25 season.

It is explained in detail that UEFA is altering the coefficient funding system, which determines how much clubs are paid based on past performances in Europe.

The amount will be computed over the last five seasons rather than the last ten years.

As a result, according to The Times, Manchester City will replace Real Madrid as the top-ranked team in Europe, and Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester United are the other three English teams that are among the top seven clubs based on the five-year ranking.

But how much more prize money from UEFA’s Champions League competition could Manchester City receive?

According to Martyn Ziegler, UEFA projects a 33% increase in revenue for its club competitions.

Should Manchester City win the first redesigned Champions League in 2025, revenues would increase from about £120 million last season to over £160 million.

Later this month, Manchester City will face Serbia’s Red Star Belgrade in Group G, kicking off their defense of their UEFA Champions League championship.

This will be the first time in the histories of both clubs that they have faced one another.

Josko Gvardiol and RB Leipzig will reunite earlier than perhaps either party could have anticipated, and City will face a second brand-new foe in the same group stage campaign in the form of Swiss club BSC Young Boys.
