Premier League’s Revealing Rankings Expose Relegated Clubs Earning Over £100m

Not everything is bleak! As the Premier League’s money table is disclosed, all demoted clubs earn more than £100 million each through TV deals, marketing fees, and prize money.

The three Premier League clubs relegated this season may face grim summers, but the money garnered from the top level will undoubtedly cushion the blow.

Leicester and Leeds were both relegated to the Championship on the final day of the season, with Everton edging out Bournemouth. 

Meanwhile, Southampton fought out a thrilling draw with Liverpool in their final game before a period of upheaval, although knowing they were already down.

Each team will very certainly be obliged to sell a slew of players and make drastic changes, while parachute payments will help to mitigate the impact.

Their wallets will also have been bolstered by a combination of TV money and advertisement revenues, as evidenced in last season’s money league.

Simply put, even finishing near the bottom of the table is hugely profitable.

Every Premier League team receives a minimum of £87.5 million from domestic television (£31.8 million), foreign television (£48.9 million), and advertising fees (£6.8 million).

With facility fees, as well as domestic and European prize money, the money standings make for interesting reading.

Southampton earned a total of £102.5 million, whereas Leeds, who ended 19th after losing to Tottenham, got £110.2 million.

Despite falling through the trap door, Leicester took home £111.2 million. 

Manchester City, who were declared champions again after Arsenal’s late collapse, banked an eye-watering £165.7 million.

Mikel Arteta’s side earned £162.2 million in total, surpassing Manchester United’s final tally of £158.6 million.

Newcastle finished fourth in both the Premier League standings and the money league, courtesy to their £156.8m amount.

Further down the standings, it was found that Tottenham had taken sixth while finishing eighth in reality, missing out on European football.

Despite the success of Brighton and Aston Villa this season, Spurs were able to outperform them. The struggling north Londoners had £145.1m, compared to the Seagulls’ and Villa’s £142.1m and £141.2m, respectively.

Chelsea, despite finishing the season in 12th place, finished ninth in the money league thanks to their £133.4 million paycheck.
