The Premier league payments to each club have been revealed by the Premier League.
The number one team is Liverpool who finished 2nd in the league but had total revenues from the PL of £152.43 with Champions Manchester City second getting £150.99.
The League’s central revenues are distributed to clubs in the following manner:
- The UK broadcast revenues: 50% equally shared; 25% shared based on how often a club’s matches are transmitted in the UK (“Facility Fees”), and 25% shared based on where a club finishes in the league table (“Merit Payments”)
- Central Commercial revenues: Equally divided by clubs
- International broadcasting revenues: Equally shared by clubs
Manager Rafa Benitez – the man mainly responsible for very decent revenue from PL
These payments are listed in the table below.
This is the breakdown for Newcastle for last season, and we are around about £3M short of a year ago.
The table is in order of the points won last season – not the money paid out by the Premier League.
If it was the money paid out we’d be in 11th place – not too bad.
As a comparison here’s last year’s figures.
Even though we were in 13th place last season compared to 10th place the previous season we were quite popular on TV and had 19 matches televised.
It’s another good financial return by the club from the PL, but we can do a lot better next season.
