The winners of the 2023 Copa Libertadores final will receive a payment of just under $20 million - on top of the prize money they have already accrued throughout the 2023 edition of South America’s elite club tournament.
Argentinians Boca Juniors meet Brazil’s Fluminense in Rio de Janeiro, with Boca chasing a joint-record seventh Copa Libertadores triumph and ‘Flu’ aiming to lift the trophy for the first time ever.
Copa Libertadores prize money: the breakdown
According to information provided by CONMEBOL, South American soccer’s governing body, the 2023 Copa Libertadores champions are to be paid $18 million for winning the final in Brazil.
The runners-up, meanwhile, will pocket $7 million for reaching the showpiece event.
These sums are to be paid out in addition to the following amounts: $3 million for competing in this season’s group stage; $300,000 per group-stage win; $1.25 million for reaching the last 16; $1.7 million for making the quarter-finals; and $2.3 million for qualifying for the semi-finals.
In all, this year’s nearly-$208 million Copa Libertadores prize pot is just over one-fifth larger than 2022′s fund, CONMEBOL says.
How much money could Boca earn?
Having won four matches in the group stage, Boca stand to make a total of $27.45 million if they secure another Copa Libertadores title. If they’re losing finalists, they’ll receive $16.45 million for their continental campaign.
How much money could Fluminense earn?
Fluminense won three group Games, so their maximum prize money is slightly lower than Boca’s. The Brazilians will earn $27.15 million overall if they’re crowned South American champions, and $16.15 million if they lose the final.
