Celtic have landed a potential £30million-plus jackpot after booking their place in the Champions League group stages.

Here we look at the breakdown of the cash that could be heading into the Parkhead coffers.

PRIZE MONEY

Celtic will bank a straight-up fee of £10.2 million for being involved in the group stages. They have also secured a £1.7 million bonus for winning their play-off against Hapoel Be’er Sheva.

PERFORMANCE BONUS

Brendan Rodgers’ men will earn £1.27 million for every win they manage during the six-game round-robin phase, with UEFA paying out £425,000 per draw. There is a further £4.7 million on offer if Celtic can reach the last 16.

TV MONEY

The UK clubs receive around £85 million as a result of the broadcast deal with BT Sport and ITV. Under an agreement with UEFA, Scotland’s sole representative in the competition will get a 10 per-cent share, so that’s another £8.5 million, which is several times what they receive for domestic broadcast agreements.

TICKET SALES

The last time the Hoops qualified in 2013, they banked £6.4 million after selling out Parkhead for clashes with AC Milan, Barcelona and Ajax.
