How Much Prize Money Will the Euro 2020 Winners Receive?

Like most other football tournaments, the team that advances the furthest in Euro 2020 will receive the most prize money.

On top of winning this trophy, the winners of Euro 2020 will net S$16.0 million (€10 million) on the day of the final alone.

Whereas the runner-ups will only get S$11.2 million (€7 million).

But, both teams would have accumulated a substantial amount on the road to the final.

As mentioned above, the most a team could receive in prize money from Euro 2020 is S$54.6 million (€34 million).

But to get this amount, the winners of Euro 2020 will have to win all three qualifying group-stage matches and all the knockout games.

Even the participation trophy is quite decent as each team in Euro 2020 will receive about S$14.8 million (€9.3 million) just for qualifying.

Also, all Euro 2020 teams will receive S$2.4 million (€1.5 million) for each group-stage win and S$1.2 million (€750,000) for each group stage draw.

When teams progress further in Euro 2020, they will earn substantially more for making it deeper into the tournament.

Here is how England and Italy are faring so far in terms of Euro 2020 prize money.

England Euro 2020 Prize Money

Since England won two and drew one match in the group stages, they currently qualify for about S$37.3 million in prize money.

If they win the final, they will stand to win about S$16 million more for a total of S$53.3 million.

Italy Euro 2020 Prize Money

Whereas for Italy, their team won all three matches in the group stages. This means that they currently qualify for S$38.5 million in prize money.

If they win the final, they will stand to win S$16 million more for a total of S$54.6 million.

England vs Italy Euro 2020: Who Will Win Based on Squad Value

But who will win the final?

The folks over at Transermarkt might have a clue.

England Euro 202 Squad Worth

England Squad (Total Market Value): S$2.02 billion (€1.26 billion)

Median Player Worth: S$68.2 million (€42.5 million)

Most Valuable Player: Captain and Striker Harry Kane who is worth S$192.6 million (€120 million)

Italy Euro 2020 Squad Worth

Italy Squad (Total Market Value): S$1.2 billion (€751 million)

Median Player Worth: S$35.3 million (€22 million)

Most Valuable Player: Central Midfielder Nicolò Barella who is worth S$104.3 million (€65 million)

Based on the value of their squads, England look like the favourites.

But football is never that simple.

Anything can happen during the game.

We don’t have to look too far for an example as in the Euro 2020 round of 16, underdogs Switzerland (population of about 8.6 million) managed to beat tournament favourites France.

Although Italy has a lower-valued squad, they have a spine of experienced and proven winners like Juventus defenders Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci.

Whereas England has a younger and hungrier squad with exciting young attacking talents like Raheem Sterling, Mason Mount and Jadon Sancho.

Whatever the case, I am super excited for the Euro 2020 final and will be watching and cheering England on.
