How much prize money Spurs could earn from the Champions League

It would be difficult for anyone to argue that Tottenham have not had a successful season in the Champions League this year.

Despite not spending a penny on transfers, and being hit hard with injuries, Spurs have made it all the way to their first ever semi-finals.

After three games of the group stage, Spurs had just one point and looked extremely unlikely to qualify for the knockout stages.

However, wins against PSV and Inter Milan, as well as a point away to Barcelona, were enough to secure second place qualification.

Tottenham followed up by beating then German League leaders Borussia Dortmund in the round of 16, and then Premier League leaders Man City in the quarters.

But how much prize money have Spurs acquired in their most successful ever Champions League run?

Every club that qualifies for the group stage is handed £13.2 million, with wins at this stage worth £2.3m each, and draws £776,000 (Express).

Spurs had two wins and two draws in the group stage, along with that initial £13.2, making a total of £19,352,000.

Each Champions League club then gets £8.2m for making the round of 16, £9.1m for the quarter-finals, and £10.3m for the semi-finals.

That means that Spurs have already earned a grand total of £46,952,000, enough for a decent player in the summer if they choose to reinvest.

If Tottenham make the final, they will be granted another £12.9m and an extra £3.5m for winning the whole competition.

That makes a possible £63,352,000 windfall for Spurs this season, if they go all the way.

Spurs Web Opinion:

Regardless of whether they make it any further in the competition this season, Spurs earning almost £50m should be a huge boost to the club. If they could consistently reach the quarter-finals in the Champions League each season, they would have a large sum of prize money to reinvest each transfer window. I hope to see Tottenham using this nearly £50m on one big name this summer.
