Tuesday, 12 12 2017



ECA Finance Working Group discuss issues related to club finance, including Financial Fair Play

UEFA has redistributed all fines imposed for breaches of the Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations to clubs who participated in the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League (UCL) and UEFA Europa League (UEL).
 
In line with the agreement between ECA and UEFA, 80% of the amounts withheld due to non-compliance
with FFP rules have been distributed equally to clubs that played in the group stages of the UEFA
Champions League and UEFA Europa League, and 20% of the amounts withheld have been distributed
equally to clubs eliminated during the qualifying stages of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa
League. Clubs that had ongoing settlement agreements or were under FFP disciplinary measures in
2016/17 were not entitled to receive these amounts.
 
For the 2016/17 season, the total amount of money withheld was 6,363,000 and this has been
redistributed as follows:

  • 80% (5,090,400) for UCL/UEL group stage clubs (65) = approximately 78,300 per club
  • 20% (1,272,600) for UCL/UEL qualifying phase clubs (149) = approximately 8,540 per club
