European number 16 will be the most expensive. The participating national teams will share 331 million euros, 30 million more than in France 2016.
The winner of Euro 2020 will receive 30 million euros, while 9.5 million will be guaranteed to each of the 24 participants. But that is not all. In groups, a victory is worth one million euros and a draw of 500 thousand euros.
Passing to the second round guarantees 1.5 million, the quarterfinals 2.5 million and the semifinals 4 million. 5 million euros for those who go to the finals. In total, UEFA’s figure for the European will reach two billion euros with the aim of achieving a profit of over 850 million euros.
But if the pandemic has not affected the financial and reward side, there is fear on the sports side. Infections of the players, although with drops, have caused most of the teams, especially the contenders, to notify other players, who will be waiting in case any one gets infected.
The biggest fear is mass infection. Sweden is keeping Zlatan Ibrahimovic in tone, but he has not yet recovered 100%. Let’s hope we only talk about the game and not about Covid-19.
