In the Europa League clubs also receive money for the results they achieve. Four wins, one draw and one defeat brought €2.47m to Milan, plus another €1m to add for first place in the group.
Finally, €500,000 more is added for the mathematical qualification for the Round of 32, which was obtained on the fifth day of the group stage. Milan will also receive revenues from the UEFA maket pool, but that will recalculated and paid out later due to the crisis due to Coronavirus.
