Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool will face off in Madrid on Saturday in an all-English final.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side will take part in their first Champions League final while Liverpool are looking to win the European trophy for the sixth time.
If Liverpool triumph in Madrid they will pocket an English record £98.1m in prize money from UEFA if they win and £94.6m if they suffer defeat (totalsportek).
Spurs in comparison will earn £93m if they win, and about £89.5m if they lose.
The money is calculated from a number of aspects ranging from fees generated for making the group stage (£13.5m each) to performance bonuses for group stage wins and draws (£7.9m for Liverpool versus £6.9m for Tottenham) to extra payments for reaching the last 16 (an extra £8.4m), the last eight (£9.2m more), the semi-finals (£10.6m more) and the final (£13.2m more).
The difference between winning and losing the final is just £3.5million in prize money.
