Manchester City earned 83.8 million euros ($92.6 million) in Champions League prize money last season to top the table of UEFA payments to clubs.

Although Man City lost in the semifinals to eventual winner Real Madrid, its share of lucrative British television rights lifted it above Madrid’s 80 million euro ($88.4 million) share of the 1.345 billion euro ($1.48 billion) UEFA prize fund.

Juventus was third with 76.2 million euros ($84.2 million). Despite losing in the last 16, the Italian champions got the largest TV rights share.

Of the 32 group teams, Maccabi Tel Aviv’s 16.7 million euro ($18.4 million) share was lowest.

The payments were the first in a three-year cycle of Champions League broadcast and sponsorship deals.

UEFA predicts a 30 percent revenue rise for the 2018-21 seasons.
