What New Premier League TV Deal Means: Elite English Football Clubs To Get Much, Much Richer!

Posted by

The Premier League is set to strengthen its position as the world’s richest football league, so surely it is only a matter of time until La Liga’s top stars come over here?

Earlier today, we told you that the Premier League is about to strike a new broadcasting deal, which will make top-flight clubs in England even richer.

The league is money mad – as this stat pack proves…

* All 20 Premier League teams are already among world football’s 40 highest-earning clubs.

* Revenue is growing at a scarily-fast rate. When Cardiff City finished bottom of the Premier League in 2013-14, they received more broadcasting revenue (£62.1m) than Manchester United did for winning the title 12 months earlier (£60.8m).

* The new deal will mean that the total cost of worldwide Premier League rights will far exceed £5.5bn, making it the second most valuable sports league in the world, behind America’s NFL.

* Broadcast revenue will be divided into three parts. 50% will be shared equally between all 20 clubs, with 25% being awarded as prize money based on league position. The final 25% will be paid as a “facilities fee” for televised matches.

* The average Premier League player already earns £31,000 per week. With increased broadcast revenue, this could increase even further.
