Did you know that the Europa League helps UEFA to fund football development across Europe?
UEFA uses revenue generated by the EURO, Europa League, Champions League and Europa Conference League to stage 13 other competitions: Women's EURO, Women's Champions League, the European Under-21 Championship, the men's and women's Under-17 and Under-19 Championships, the Youth League, the men's and women's Futsal EUROs, the Futsal Champions League, the Under-19 Futsal Championship and the Regions' Cup.
By keeping overheads to a minimum, over two-thirds of our net revenue is distributed to the 200-plus teams taking part in UEFA men's club competitions. Payments also go to clubs eliminated in the qualifying rounds, and to non-participating clubs to invest in young players. We also reward associations whose national teams take part in the men's and women's EURO, European qualifiers and Nations League.
From 2020 to 2024, UEFA will invest more than €1bn in football development projects – profits specifically from the men's EURO fund our HatTrick programme, which provides associations with, on average, €195m each season to invest across the game, from grassroots to elite level.
From 2024, that total will rise by a further 21%, ensuring that by 2028, HatTrick will have channelled €3.5bn into European football – giving more and more people the chance to enjoy the beautiful game.
