UEFA has distributed €23.1 million to Inter Milan and AC Milan for participation in the Champions League quarterfinals and semifinals.
This according to Italian news outlet Calcio e Finanza, who report that the Nerazzurri and the Rossoneri have both taken in the additional prize money after European football’s top governing body made the funds available from the two rounds of the competition.
Inter’s earnings from the Champions League have kept rising as they’ve beaten a path through the knockout rounds. The Nerazzurri are set to earn over €100 million.
Even more could be on the way should the Nerazzurri go all the way by winning next month’s final against Manchester City.
Now, Inter have received all of the payments for participation except those for the final.
