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.
