UEFA’s Executive Committee yesterday approved the award and distribution criteria of the UEFA EURO 2024 Club Benefits Programme, which – every four years – is based on an amount generated by the UEFA EURO final tournament and paid out to clubs that have contributed to the successful organization of all UEFA national team competitions by releasing players for those matches.
The amount available for the 2020/24 cycle is €240 million, as set out in the Memorandum of Understanding signed by UEFA and ECA in February 2019.
The schedule includes matches from the UEFA Nations League, the European Qualifiers and the UEFA EURO 2024 Final Tournament and the distribution system remains largely unchanged compared to UEFA EURO 2020.
€100 million will reward the release of players for the UEFA Nations League 2020/21 and 2022/23, as well as the European qualifiers for EURO 2024. This is an increase of €30 million compared to EURO 2020 and will increase solidarity with a very large number of European clubs.
The amount secured for the release of players for the EURO 2024 final tournament will also be increased from €130 million to €140 million.
After UEFA EURO 2020, €200 million was paid to 697 clubs from all 55 member associations.
