Over €6m worth of fines have been redistributed by UEFA to clubs participating in Champions League and Europa League competitions.
The fines imposed for breaches of Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations over the 2016/17 season totalled €6,363,000.
The payments are in line with an agreement between the European Clubs Association (ECA) and UEFA, which sees 80% (€5,090,400) of the amounts withheld due to non-compliance with FFP rules distributed equally to clubs that played in the group stages of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.
20% (€1,272,600) of the amounts withheld are distributed equally to clubs eliminated during the qualifying stages of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.
65 clubs playing in the group stages of both competitions will receive approximately €78,300 whilst 149 clubs who were eliminated in the qualifying phases will receive approximately €8,540 each.
Clubs that had ongoing settlement agreements or were under FFP disciplinary measures in 2016/17 were not entitled to receive these amounts.
