(WFI) The 32 teams of the Champions League Group stage will share $1.22 billion in prize money.

Each team receives a participation allotment, then accrues bonuses for each win and draw in the group stage, then at each subsequent stage the team progresses to.

Real Madrid will receive $78 million for winning the 2013-14 Champions League.

Bonuses are also allocated from the market pool, which the “proportional value of the national television market” determines the bonus according to UEFA.

French club Paris St. Germain received the second largest bonus at $74 million despite only reaching the quarterfinals. Due to only two French clubs making the group stage, PSG benefitted from a large share of the market pool.

Atlético de Madrid, Manchester United, Juventus, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Barcelona all topped $54.4 million in bonuses.

Belgian club RSC Anderlecht received the lowest bonus out of all the group stage teams earning only $16.6 million.

The list of full payouts from UEFA can be found here, which include deductions made for Financial Fair Play violations.

Notably, Manchester City and Paris St. Germain were punished for flouting Financial Fair Play regulations.
