If there wasn’t enough incentive already for Celtic to make it to the Champions League – UEFA has just raised the financial stakes further.

The news coming out of UEFA headquarters is the Champions League revenue passed onto clubs will increase by 50% from next season onwards.

The way UEFA plan to distribute this cash means Celtic could earn a cool £40million for reaching the group stages next term.

The club could even earn more if they put some victories on the board and get increased win bonuses with £2.36million for a win and just under £800,000 for a draw.

Celtic can take nothing for granted though and have four qualifiers to play to reach Europes premier competition.

Celtic have benefitted greatly from participating in the Champions League the past two seasons and will look to defy the odds to get their again.

Should Brendan Rodgers and his men manage the feat, it will land the club it’s biggest ever European purse.

Now there’s something to think about.

Celtic will soon learn their first round opponents with the games taking place mid-July.
