That can mean a lot for a small market team in terms of getting new players.
Oh no doubt making the CL brings with it a whole host of other revenue boosts, from sponsorship, to merch sales, gate receipts, concessions, add fan interest, more good will from local authorities when it comes to stadium remodeling, etc. I just wanted to clear up what the Uefa pay out is cause that's the only increase that's consistent from team to team, while all of those other factors vary greatly.
