Barcelona’s all-conquering women’s team has arrived at the Christmas break with a perfect record, winning all 16 of their matches in domestic and European competition and guaranteeing a spot in the Champions League Round of 16 with two games to spare. Winning is nothing new for Jonatan Giráldez and Barça Femení, and their continued success brings much-needed financial relief during the club’s ongoing economic crisis.

While the men’s team lost two games in their European group that forced the club to book a friendly in Dallas three days before Christmas just to make up for the lack of income from their Champions League results, the women’s team’s perfect start to their continental campaign has already brought in 760,000 euros in prize money, according to Mundo Deportivo.

With two wins in the final two group games Barça Femení will qualify in first place with a perfect record which would bring in an extra 120 grand. Going all the way back to the Final for a fourth consecutive season would nearly double the current pool of prize money, and a successful defense of their European crown would mean nearly 2 million euros of profit from the ladies’ greatness.

The prize money in the Women’s Champions League is nowhere near as impactful as that of the men’s version, but in Barça’s financial situation every euro of profit is greatly appreciated. And while the boys might struggle, you can always count on Barça’s women to win games and make money.
