Barcelona's Champions League Elimination To Cost Club $6.8M In UEFA Prize Money

After Barcelona's elimination from the quarterfinals of the Champions League, the club will lose at least €4.9M ($6.8M) that it would have received from UEFA for qualifying for the Champions League semifinals, according to the EFE. Additionally, had the "club competed in the Champions League finals," it would have earned  €10.5M ($14.5M) with a win or €6.5M ($9M) with a loss. It "is worth remembering that the last time Barcelona won the Champions League -- the '10-11 season -- the team's players and coaches collected a total" of €27M (EFE, 4/10).
