The quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League will be decided this Tuesday, April 16 and Wednesday, April 17 with participation, and all possibilities of qualifying for the semifinals intact, for both Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Atlético de Madrid.

We are in the quarterfinals and the biggest teams in Europe dream of qualifying for the semifinals, but only 4 will be the ones that make it to the round. The reputation that advancing in the Champions League table offers you is very important and is a great attraction for teams because of the huge prizes they can achieve. But not only for clubs. Referees also long to participate in this competition and those who manage to direct in these football matches receive a succulent amount of money as a salary, higher than other competitions.

UEFA, the body chaired by Aleksander Ceferin, distributes 2,032 million euros among the 32 clubs that are part of the Champions League. Just for participating in the group stage, teams receive 15.6 million euros. Playing in the round of 16 provides income, added to the previous ones, of 9.6 million. The top eight teams receive 10.6 and the semi-finalists 12.5. There is only 5 million difference between the winner and the runner-up. The runner-up gets 15.5 million and the champion 20, which ends up providing an income of more than 80 million in total. Although previously the teams were distributed this half money, today we tell you how much money the referees of the competition receive.

Not only do the players of the two teams that face each other on the field take part in the matches. On the other side, the referees are located. The job of referee is surely the most complicated in the world of football. Despite doing a good job, there will always be some fan of a team who thinks that they have done badly or that they have acted premeditatedly to harm one of the two teams. They receive insults, they are not valued and they have even been physically attacked. However, it is true that the competent organizations are managing to reduce such violence. It was September 1, 2020 when they began to be considered professional athletes. However, for many years before they had already been paid as such.

How much does a Champions League referee earn per game?

As with teams, referees have strong financial incentives to officiate a match in the UEFA Champions League. UEFA classifies its referees into four classes. This is based on your previous experience, the number of matches refereed and other official evaluations related to your job performance. The groups are:

Elite.Elite development.First.Second.

Depending on this classification, the referees receive one remuneration or another. An elite referee, that is, with five or six years of experience in the competition, who acts as the main referee, pockets 9,680 euros per match. The linemen of the same category 2,906, and the fourth referees 968 euros. Referees in the second group, with 3 to 5 years of experience, earn 6,300 euros per game if they are main referees. The sideline referees 1,900 and the fourth referees 775 euros.

Salaries in the following groups are greatly reduced compared to the first. The referees in the First group receive 2,900 euros per match and their assistants 725. If you are in the Second group, that is, you are new to the competition, you receive 1,900 euros per match, and the assistants 525. In both groups the Referees do not receive any type of remuneration.
