All knockout teams are ranked from one to 32 by coefficient points and bonus points for winning the competition.
The lowest ranked team will be given an additional £1m on top of their eventual prize money for progression.
The share is boosted by £1m per ranking.
E.g. 32nd ranked team will earn a £1m bonus, 1st ranked team will earn a £32m bonus.
Champions League market pool money
Over £250m will be split between teams based on a number of factors as a final aspect of prize money.
The fund is predominantly based on the value of each TV market represented by clubs in the tournament.
Factors including European performance and domestic achievements will contribute to how the money is split.
This fund will be shared between all group stage teams, not just those who progressed to the knockout rounds.
