Uefa women’s prize money doubled
A full statement from their executive meeting held yesterday
The UEFA Executive Committee met yesterday in Chişinău, Moldova and approved a substantial increase in the amount distributed to the participating teams, along with a new distribution model, ahead of the start of the highly anticipated UEFA Women’s European Championship final tournament in England in summer 2022.
The 16 qualified teams will share a total of €16 million, double the amount of the total prize money of €8 million distributed at UEFA Women’s Euro 2017 in the Netherlands. The financial distribution will include increased guaranteed amounts and performance-based bonuses for the group stage.
In addition, the UEFA Executive Committee approved the introduction of a club benefits programme, for the first time, making available a significant total amount of €4.5 million to reward European clubs releasing players for the UEFA Women’s Euro final tournament for their contribution to the success of the event.
The increases in financial distributions and introduction of a club benefits programme are key strategic initiatives of UEFA’s Women’s Football Strategy – TimeForAction, ensuring that more money than ever before is distributed across the women’s game.
Full details of the financial distribution scheme will be made available in the coming days.
