Donostia – Three days after having experienced football at its best, savoring a whole title, it seems frivolous to talk here about economics and finance. But drawing the picture in a complete way requires dealing with the monetary issue, as part of the importance of entering European competitions also resides in it. The fans look forward to them, as is logical. Playing on the continent is always special, and the months of October, November and December, when the leagues will be played, bring hope that by then you can travel with the team. However, it should also be noted that, in times of pandemic, UEFA’s extra revenue is an invaluable balm for a club’s coffers.
If we rewind three years and look at the 2017-18 season (the figures for the current season have not been announced yet), we see how that Real de Eusebio that was eliminated by Salzburg in the round of 32 earned 9.6 million euros with Europa League motive. 5.1 corresponded to the prizes related to their results on the grass, and the remaining 4.5 to the known market pool, a figure that varies depending on the television market of each country. It is not necessary to be very knowledgeable in mathematics to conclude that the commented numbers would alleviate around 50% of the annual losses in which the Real assessed the effects of the health crisis last year. Then he spoke that 20 million were stopped entering because of the covid.
