AC Milan collected €14.6million from participation in last season’s Europa League, a study by Calcio e Finanza has revealed.
It was a campaign of disappointment for the Rossoneri as they did not even make it out of the group stages in the competition as they lost a crucial final game against Olympiacos.
After wins against F91 Dudelange and the Greek side to kick off the group it seemed as though Milan would qualify comfortably, however they won just one of their remaining four group games to crash out.
UEFA has published the financial data that lists the distribution of revenue from the 2018-19 edition of the Europa League, and in Serie A it was Lazio who collected the most as they brought in €15.3 million.
Milan were not far behind with €14.6million, while Inter and Napoli – after dropping from the Champions League – grossed €6.7m and €3.2m respectively.
In the competition as a whole it was winners Chelsea who unsurprisingly amassed the most (€46.3m), followed by fellow finalists Arsenal (€38.9m) and semi-finalists Eintracht Frankfurt (€27.3m).
