Hoffenheim Aus: Bavaria and Leipzig cash in
After losing to Liverpool, 1899 Hoffenheim is out of the top division. The Bavarian and Leipzig RBs benefit from the Kraichgau region. The bitter outcome of the TSG 1899 Hoffenheim against FC Liverpool in qualifying for the Champions League brings an advantage for FC Bayern and RB Leipzig. 1.32 billion euros, which the UEFA distributes to the clubs each year during the Champions League, will be distributed in a complicated system. In addition to starting fees for each team, prizes for victories and the achievement of the next round, there are also distributions from the so-called “market pool” for the participants of individual nations. According to kicker information, the Bundesliga will receive 68.5 million euros from this money. The money will be distributed at 50 percent based on the ranking of the clubs in the last season. Due to Hoffenheim’s retirement, the Bavarian champions will receive 45 percent instead of 40 percent and the Leipzigers 35 percent instead of 30 percent. The share for Borussia Dortmund remains the same at 20 percent, with Hoffenheim holding the ten percent share of the champions and vice-champions. Both clubs will receive 1.71 million euros more than originally planned, with Bavaria accounting for a good 15.4 million, Leipzig for 12 million and BVB for a good 6.8 million euros, while the other 50 percent of the national TV pool will be distributed according to sporting success.
