The controversy surrounding the distribution of media revenues has become the focus of discussion again during the emerging Corona virus crisis, at a time when the German League wants to make a decision on the new policy for the distribution of revenues during the current year.

The gap between the top clubs and the rest of the Bundesliga has widened with regard specifically to the proceeds of the European Champions League matches, as Bayern Munich is supposed to get 115 million and 690 thousand euros after crowning the continental title last season, as the European Union (UEFA) will not impose any deductions despite the decline in revenues.
