Hammers and Europe – the financial benefits

West Ham will be keeping everything crossed that David Moyes can lead the club into a top four position  given the huge footballing and financial achievement it would represent.

In very difficult times the financial boost for qualification would be a very big deal indeed and offer extra funds for player signings.

The Champions League is where the real money exists but a Europa League qualification would also be a big benefit to the Hammers.

Each Champions League finalist gets €15m, with a winners’ bonus of €4m. So decent progress could help the club’s finances  considerably and although extremely unlikely,  should we win it 🙂 we’d pick up at least €76m – totally eye watering!

Last season the Europa League competition winners received €8,500,000 (£7.5m/$10m).

The runners-up earned €4,500,000 (£4m/$5m) and group stage participation saw teams picking up a base fee of €2,920,000 (£2.5m/$3.5m).

Each win in the group yielded €570,000 (£515k/$680k) and a draw €190,000 (£170k/$230k)

  1. I hope Hugh champions league is a dream , we have a few difficult games coming up , if we can beat Man Utd & Arsenal we have a great opportunity. I know there are difficult games after that with our rivals but surely winning the next two would give us the belief for the rest of the season . Why not look how well we’ve done already and no pressure as still no one is expecting us to make top 4 , would be great for the lads to prove them wrong COYI ⚒
