Salary Rise for UEFA Referees

Good news for UEFA's referees: They'll see more money on their account after international games from this season on. Europe's football governing bodies has slightly increased the salaries per match. Referees taking charge of major finals in Champions or Europa League, for example, now get 6.000 € plus daily allowances and a lump sum for domestic expenses.



1) All officials get daily allowances in the amount of 200 € per day (including the day of the departure and the day when they return from their international duty).

2) There is a lump sum of 200 € to cover domestic expenses (e.g. a night in a hotel close to the domestic airport before departing to or returning from UEFA duties).

3) Of course, referees also get match salaries:

  3. Why is the system based on who the referee is and not the competition they are officiating in?

    1. I could answer: a referee who belongs to a certain category has already his background of matches assigned, just based on that.
      Elite: Champions League and Europa League starting from group stage, major tournaments
      First Category: Champions League and Europa League until quarterfinals
      Second and Third: mostly CL and EL preliminary rounds, U17, U19, U21, YL.

    2. And of course UEFA also creates a side-effect: progressing in the category system is thus also a financial incentive.

    1. Rather than gender I'm sure it is based on revenue generation of competition as well
