The prize money for Euro 2020 has been revealed: How much may England take home from the tournament?
England and all of Gareth Southgate’s predecessors have failed to win the European Championships or the prized Henri Delaunay Trophy.
Last time out, Portugal won their first major competition at Euro 2016, thanks to Eder’s extra-time winner against hosts France.
Eleven cities will host 51 games after it was confirmed in 2012 that the competition will be staged around Europe as it celebrated its 60th year in 2018.
The pandemic led UEFA to postpone the championship until March 2020, yet Euro 2020 will kick off this weekend, 15 months later.
On July 11, all three of England’s group stage matches, two round of 16 matches, the semi-final, and the final will be held at Wembley Stadium.
Scotland is one of the host nations seeking to advance further in the event as they compete in their first major event since 1998, while Wales will be attempting to repeat their semi-final performance from five years ago.
To advance to the knockout stages, England will have to overcome Croatia, Scotland, and the Czech Republic.
The top two teams from each Group A-F will go to the knockout stages at the round of 16 stage, and four of the third-placed teams in those groups will be granted a second opportunity in the competition as the best-third placed team, similar to championships in France.
In comparison to 2016, the prize money for this year’s competition has increased.
Portugal received €8 million (£6.8 million) for their victory in Paris, but the winner of this summer’s event will receive an additional €2 million, bringing the total to €10 million (£8.6 million).
Qualification: €9.25 million (£7.9 million) for each team
Group Stage: €1 million (£850k) for a win, €750k (£600k) for a draw.
Round of 16: Each team in the last 16 receives €1.5 million (£1.2 million).
Quarter-finals: €2.5 million (£2.1 million) for each of the final eight teams.
Semi-finals: €5 million (£4.2 million) for each of the final four teams.
€7 million (£5.9 million) was awarded to the runners-up.
Champions: €10 million (£8.7 million).
Maximum Potential Earnings: €32 million (£27 million).
England is one of the favorites to win the tournament, and if they make it all the way, they will not only win but also pocket the prize money. The summary comes to a close.
