Newcastle received £77,835,102 (approximately) from the Premier League for last season, and although we finished in 15th place in the Premier League, that figure is the 11th highest amount given out by the Premier League, and only about £2M less than we received last year when we were 10th.
Newcastle gained by being shown on TV 20 times (the Facility Fee) , and a number of those games were when we were tumbling down the league table and under John Carver, and it ended up that Hull or Newcastle would be relegated from the Premier League on the last day of the season.
Fortunately for us it was Hull who went down, as we had a famous 2-0 win against West Ham.
The top money went to Chelsea, the Premier League Champions, with just under £99M, and bottom club QPR got the least amount with just under £65M.
This should just about keep Newcastle United as one of the 20 richest football clubs in the world for this financial year.
And bottom line, there’s plenty of money to spend this summer.
The season after next is the new £5.1B Premier League three year TV deal, and the above amounts will rise by about 70% at that time.
