Eredivisie clubs to share Uefa prize money with domestic rivals

Eredivisie clubs have decided to share a portion of prize money earned in Uefa competitions with their domestic rivals in a bid to close the financial gap between top-tier teams.

From next season, Dutch clubs who qualify for the Champions League or Europa League will give five per cent of the group-stage prize money to clubs who did not compete in Europe.

Based on the earnings last year of Feyenoord, which played in the Champions League, €1.25m would have been allocated to non-qualifying clubs.

The Eredivisie also plans to give hundreds of thousands of euros in solidarity payments toward youth training at second-tier clubs.
