Real Madrid to pocket at least 6.8 million euros from the Supercopa de Espana

13 Nov 2019

Valencia are guaranteed just 2.5 million euros when they participate in the new-look Supercopa de Espana in January.

Los Che have complained about their amount of prize money, with Real Madrid guaranteed to pocket 6.8 million euros from taking part.

Luis Rubiales, the president of the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), has now revealed that Valencia president Anil Murthy agreed to a lower amount of prize money during a dinner in Mallorca.

“When I’m hearing that Valencia are only guaranteed 2.5 million euros from the same person [Murthy] that asked for 1.5 million in that dinner, it’s strange,” Rubiales said.

The prize money is broken down into three parts. The first (0.8 million euros) is awarded for participating in the tournament. The second is determined by how well teams do in the tournament.

The third is determined by previous honours won by the club, in which Valencia will earn 1.7 million compared to Real Madrid‘s six million.

As a result, Valencia have decided to request an arbitration to make sure that they’re given a fair amount of prize money.
