'If It's Football, It's Vital'

100 Million Jackpot!

If any proof is needed of just how financially enticing participation in the Champions League is, then look no further than below.

In beating Barcelona and reaching the Champions League Final, Chelsea Football Club will receive a mind-boggling 45 million purely from television coverage rights.

There will also be a further 2.8 million thrown into the pot if we beat Bayern.

But it is also reckoned that an appearance in the Champions League is enough lucrative enough for the above money to be doubled via other revenue streams such as merchandising.

Time to fill your boots Chelsea!

Wow. That's a lot of money. We should play in the final every year from now on. Haha. Nothing seems impossible nowadays

As well as the 100m, there's also the opportunity to add more trophys next season ie super cup and the club world cup. That's an amazing 7 trophies we could play in.

after the season we had im ecstatic just to get into the CL final and FA cup final haha.We got such a good chance to win both but i wont get too confident just yet!
bluenath86
Money, money, money. Gimme, gimme, gimme!! We could sign 4 or 5 really good players for that kind of money. I really hope we win the CL just to get the money to fund our squad overhaul.
blu4life
Torres transfer fee repaid !! Almost !
varun.trueblue
With all that money we could sign Messi ???? LMAO.. do we want him? Is he good enough to play at Chelsea???
Blue_Mel
I mean he cant even score a penalty .LOL LOL

Adidas is the main winner here!

So last season we earned 36 million by reaching the quarter final of the champions league but yet we recorded losses of 67.7 million.remember we spent 71million in january for torres and luiz.so cancelling the losses of 67.7 million with the 71 million.But this seson we would earn 45 million for showing up in the final alone and it can be doubled by others like merchandise,ticket sales etc.,so considering we atleast earn 90 million,also we didnt spend big in january,do we have any chance of breaking even.can anyone light me.

new kit for the final? that should bring the dosh in!
merlin
Torres got us 45mil back so in a way he cost us 5 mil (ya i knw it was a team effort but still)

let me get this straight..is the 45m just for getting to the final or is this out of the total loot for this seasons champions league campaign from UEFA..my impression is that it is the former meaning there is still the money UEFA pays us for playing in the tournament separate from the TV rights money for reaching the finals..This is the big reason why participating in this tournament yearly quickly seperates the boys from the men..the money earned is just stupendous and it is why that loveable miser Arsene Wenger has winning trophies as secondary in his list of priorities. As he is such a stickler for balancing the books he has made it his mission to keep the gunners in the Champions league all 16 yrs he has been with them and it is pretty certain he,ll pull it of again despite their horrendous start to the season. We have to qualify for next years tournament by any means possible..ideally by getting a top 4 finish but failing that we have to win the final come may 19..the consquences of no champions league football for even one year for a club like ours are best only imagined.

Imagine the amount of managers we can hire and fire. Tons of opportunities. Wait, I have an idea. Maybe our board can be wise with the money for once.
stamfordblues5
Yes, d board would be wise this time. it is an opportunity to spend big on rebuilding & still balance d book cos of FFP. but we must get signings right, it is very important.... thinking of paying spurs 30mil for modric would be foolish now, there are better options. sigurdsson on loan at swansea would be a great buy, he is talent but i guess we overlook such players until man utd get them for cheap & he turns to another valencia.
Chelz Akamz
I hope we win bcos winning has many advantages such as financial,bragging rights..Winning will make our players add value when we sell them as champions league winners! And besides we will attract more world class players..But can bayern be beaten?
Desmondadonis
Bayern can be defeated @DESMOND but not by defending 90 minutes...time for RDM to prove his worth
@Mq
We can always go all the way and be among the best.
