Hammers can pocket £18m on European run with a win tonight

West Ham earned €4.5m (£3.9m) with qualification to the Europa Conference League group stage and earned the maximum five win bonuses of €500,000 (£423,000) each.  West Ham won group B which netted them €650,000 (£562,000), bringing the total prize money so far to over £6.5m

Add to that ticket revenue for five home games at the London Stadium, one with over 180,000 tickets sold at an average of just over £20 per ticket, including corporate hospitality. The Hammers would have banked £4.5m as a conservative estimate.

West Ham has been awarded a Ten-year Coefficient bonus of €979,000 (£854,000). The Hammers would have received a share of the TV pool money worth around £800,000 after four games were broadcast on BT Sport.

After beating Larnaca in the round of 16 West Ham won a new bonus for qualification to the quarter-finals of €1 million (£850,000)

West Ham will also receive a share of TV pool money for as long as they stay in the competition and get to keep their gate revenue from home tickets.

Tonight’s home match is likely to bring another £1.5m in gate money with a 53,500 crowd expected.

6foot2 estimates the amount earned so far on the European run is £12.5m, with another home leg likely to generate £1.5m, so a £14m in total before reaching the semi-finals. 

If West Ham qualify for the semi-final would earn the Hammers a further: €2 million (£1.7m) and problem £2.3m in gate money for a sell out home semi final at the London Stadium adding £4m to their European run kitty which could reach £18m at the semi finals point.

The Winner pockets: €5 million (£4,23m) and a Europa League place, with the Runner-up getting €3 million (£2.53m)
