A new coefficient-based prize pool will be created, which allocations therefore a larger share of prize money towards historic performance rather than just the geographical broadcasting contributions. The coefficients pool is calculated on each individual clubs performance in the Champions League and Europa League over the preceding 10-year period with also further recognition for historic European trophy wins. It is shared between the 32 competing clubs based on their coefficient ranking order, so the club with the highest coefficient will received 32 times more than the club at the bottom of the coefficient. I think of it similarly to the Premier League merit payments in terms of finishing positions. Currently we sit fifth in the coefficient table, and we are the leading English club at the moment. Overall, we will need to wait until UEFA announce what the actual prize fund will be to determine the impact for us.
