Champions League Teams in the Top Flight

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - April 4, 2016) -

Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this Press Release.

NetBet are sending a squad of lucky winners to the Champions League Final in Milan and, as befits the fashion capital of the world, they will be travelling in style, via Private Jet.

As business jet travel is usually only for millionaires, it got us thinking about how the eight teams still in the competition measured up in terms of the value of their squads. It probably comes as no surprise that Real Madrid, closely followed by Barcelona, lead the field, each with squads worth over half a billion pounds - but how many private jets could that buy instead?

The Gulfstream G500 costs around £29m, it's one of the finest business aircraft in the world - capable of sitting a squad of 19 pampered footballers in comfort and style. Real Madrid's squad is worth 18 of these aircraft plus some change while plucky Benfica could only manage to get 4 jets and a few rounds from the drinks cart for their squad.

Barca player Neymar made headlines recently when his own £6m Private Jet had a seizure notice issued against it by the Brazilian authorities chasing alleged tax arrears. Now he and Messi are the subject of transfer rumours and with a combined estimated value of £165m - that could get you a customised Boeing 737 seating up to 200 people and a nice chunk of change to help pay for the fuel.

The Infographic shows how each of the teams left in the competition measure up.

Alexandre Mangaud, NetBet's Marketing Manager, said: "We are delighted to be sending a lucky player, plus guest to The Champions League Finals at the San Siro in Milan on May 28th, the package includes flights to Italy on a Private Jet. Anyone choosing to place a bet on the Champions League is eligible to enter, competing with other NetBet customers for this fantastic prize, and a chance to travel like Neymar, at least for one weekend!"
