Qualifying fee €3.6m
Group stages
Each win €630k
Each draw €210k

Win group €1.1m
Runners up €550k

Qualify for R16 €1.2m
Qualify for QF €1.8m
Qualify for SF €2.8m
Runner up €4.6m
Winners €8.6m

So winning group with (say) 10 points and winning competition = €20.6m plus market pool and UEFA coefficient (which will be low, each team is ranked out of last 10 years in Europe and given €132k per place)

Those figures don’t include matchday income (£6-700k net per match) in group IMO and sponsor bonuses.

Cost of increasing the squad size to be able to play Sunday—Thursday football will consume most of the prize money unless get to final stages.

Winning the Europa League is worth a lot more in reality as it comes with a place in the following seasons Champions League Group Stage. That in itself is worth £30million before any prize money for winning games etc is taken into account.

That's probably not great for TB compared to the costs of squad depth strengthening.......

but its kudos, its European Competititon, it increases profile of the club, and for us fans it's priceless

Do you think that increasing the squad size will help us compete in the Prem, by increasing our ability to plug gaps, thus perhaps achieving a higher final position, and therefore more PL prize money?

I think it might.

We would have if we’d beaten Utd in 83.
Palace would have qualified in 1990 had English clubs not been banned (3rd in league)

It's bound to be raised with us.

Saints are gone. And 2 from Leicester, Everton, Leeds will go too, there's a few of the better players in those teams who'd be well worth a look and would be decent additions...... plus I think Albion will mightily attractive compared to a midweek away trip to Plymouth.

If you were really helpful you would have converted it into pounds

The prize money itself is almost irrelevant compared to PL money. The attraction of European football, however, is priceless.
