Ghent wants to move towards more lucrative CL: ‘Starting premium is almost twice as high’


KAA Gent faces a tough task on Tuesday evening. In Kiev it has to make up for a 1-2 home defeat to get into the Champions League. The financial differences between CL qualification and the Europa League safety net are large.

The Ghent board made it a top priority of the Champions League last summer. No less than 15.7 million euros was invested to put together a core that could compete on three fronts: Jupiler Pro League, Crocky Cup and European.

With the win against Rapid Wien, Ghent already secured a nice pocket money. Should Ghent fly out against Kiev, they will be caught in the Europa League. However, Ghent will hope for a Ukrainian miracle, as the financial differences between both competitions are large.

So know Sports Football Magazine that qualification for the Champions League group stage entitles you to a starting premium of 15.25 million euros. That amount can of course still add up considerably per point that is taken. In the Europa League, the premiums are also not small, but the difference is considerable. For example, Ghent is certainly entitled to 8.17 million euros should it eventually play in the Europa League. Financial stakes are therefore high in Kiev.
