UEFA distribute £25M to European leagues

UEFA is distributing €43.2 million made from the 2006-07 Champions League to European soccer leagues.

UEFA said that leagues with clubs playing in last season's Champions League will receive a combined €36 million, while leagues without participants in the competition will receive €7.2 million.

UEFA said the payments are aimed at supporting youth development in professional soccer.

Payments to leagues are made through the national associations, which are required to transfer the full amount to its top league. The league is responsible for distributing the money to its clubs.

Associations without a recognized league are responsible for the distribution of the money to the clubs.

To be eligible to receive a share, clubs must have an approved youth development program. However, clubs that took part in the group stage of the Champions League are ineligible.
