The prize money for Real Madrid after winning the 2021/22 LaLiga title has been revealed.
Real Madrid, on Saturday, clinched the LaLiga title after beating Espanyol 4-0 to become football champions of Spain for the 35th time.
However, winning the title doesn’t bring in a cash prize for the club that wins Spain’s domestic top-flight league, unlike what happens in Europe’s biggest club tournament, the Champions League, where there are cash amounts specified for each round a team advances in the competition.
In LaLiga, the teams are competing for the honour of being the champions of Spain.
According to AS, Real Madrid stands to bank some $80 million (€66 million) for lifting the 2021/22 LaLiga title.
The report added that the major part of that cash comes from the TV rights for LaLiga, which in total come to a prudent estimate of some $1.7 billion (€1.4 billion).
The amount also included the $14 million the Los Blancos will earn as LaLiga Champions from the Champions League market pool, some four million more than the runners up on $10 million.
