With the end of the season just around the corner, Liverpool and their likely amount of prize money to be received has now been revealed.

It has been a mixed season for the Reds in Jurgen Klopp’s final campaign.

At the turn of the year, it looked like Liverpool were invincible and were ready to take the Premier League title race by the horns.

It was also almost expected that the Reds would make it to at least the final of both the FA Cup and the Europa League.

Spirits were high at Anfield and rightly so, as it looked like Jurgen Klopp’s men would be able to defy expectations and deliver a magical ending to the German’s nine-year tenure.

However, as we are all aware, it did not pan out that way – with many fans pinpointing Liverpool’s FA Cup exit at the hands of archrivals Manchester United as the main turning point in the season.

Indeed, since the FA Cup defeat, the Reds drew with the Red Devils 2-2 in the Premier League and lost 1-0 to Crystal Palace in the following weeks – while also suffering a heavy 3-0 defeat to Atalanta at Anfield in the Europa League.

It was a poor April that just saw Jurgen Klopp’s men run out of steam at a critical stage, disappointing but understandable considering the standards that Manchester City set.

Arsenal are now experiencing it, with one having to be pretty much flawless from December to beat Pep Guardiola in a title race.

Despite the disappointment of how the campaign has ended, it has still been a decent season for Liverpool as a whole.

The Anfield club are back where they belong in the Champions League, and the season will not end trophyless.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at Liverpool and their potential prize money earned for the 2023/24 season.

How much did Liverpool earn in prize money this season?

Victories by Arsenal and Manchester City this weekend have confirmed Liverpool’s third place standing in the Premier League table for the 2023/24 season.

Although they were unable to stick it out in the title race until the end, Luckily, Liverpool will benefit from a significant boost in prize money as a result of their third-placed finish.

As the wealthiest league globally, the Premier League distributes approximately £2.5 billion among all 20 clubs, with payouts increasing for higher placements according to the Liverpool Echo.

Last season, Liverpool earned an estimated £161.2 million for their fifth-place finish in the league.

While the exact amount for this season has not yet been finalized, the team that finished third last year received £165 million.

Additionally, with their run to the Europa League quarterfinals, Liverpool is estimated to have added around £27 million, bringing their total prize money to just over £190 million before the summer transfer window.

Arne Slot and the recruitment staff should therefore have a sizable war chest in the summer to address any shortcomings in the squad, with a centre-back signing thought to already be in motion.
