Juventus tops Champions League earnings table

Juventus earned more from the Champions League than any other club last season.

The Serie A champion was beaten by eventual winners Bayern Munich in the quarterfinals, but still made 65.3 million euros from the competition - around 10m euros more than the German side. 

This is mostly due to the Italian side gaining much of the TV money in their own country, with FIFA explaining that "monies from the market pool were divided according to the proportional value of the national TV market each individual club represented."

According to the organization, "the amounts given varied from country (or national association) to country."

Bayern - which also won the Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal in 2012-13 - took home 55m euros after it beat fellow Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the final at Wembley.

Jurgen Klopp's side earned 54.16m euros, thanks partly to the reward for winning four of its six group stage games, which brought in 1m euros per match.

Milan and Barcelona were the next biggest earners, gaining 51.3m and 45.5m euros, respectively, even though the latter beat the former in the last eight stage.  

In total, 904.6m euros was handed out to 32 clubs. In the Europa League the overall fund was 209m euros.

Semifinalist Fenerbahce was the biggest earners from the competition with 11.18m euros, and winner Chelsea made 10.7m euros.
