With the 2015-16 season behind us, the final television allocation money based on league positions have been confirmed.

The Premier League have now announced the ‘central income payments’ made to clubs last season and the revenue distributed includes income generated from the sale of broadcasting rights (UK and international) as well as other Premier League commercial rights.

As you can imagine it’s not chicken feed and it will only be greater once the new television deal kicks into being in the future.

For specifics:

Each club receives a minimum of £8,782,088 for live games across the campaign, even if they are on television fewer than ten times. They receive an additional £747,922 per game shown above that basic ten game level.

Clubs also get an additional £1,242,405 in merit money per place in the table – as can be seen.

Finally, each club receives an equal share of both domestic television income and overseas television income – respectively £21,924,800 and £29,415,848.

And finally, a share of central commercial sponsor income, with each receiving £4,509,152.

For last year’s relegated clubs (ten clubs in total going back 3/4 years) they received a total of £172million between them in parachute payments.

In the order of which chief executives and owners will be smiling the most at the big fat Sky cheques.

Villa’s total for the year (£66.6million) becomes a Premier League highest sum paid to a side in 20th place, and part of that is due to the ratio split of 1.52/1 from Arsenal in top spot down to their final league position, and it is said to be the lowest ratio since the introduction of the Premier League back in the 1992/93 season.

Last season we picked up £72,853,138.

It’s said Spain’s split is the equivalent of 8/1, Italy’s 5/1, France’s 3.5/1 and Germany 2/1.

As a comparison back to 1992/93, that year Manchester United pocketed £2,413,660 as top earners and lowest earners were Middlesbrough with £1,063,135. Last season Queens Park Rangers picked up £64,886,028 for last spot and Chelsea in top spot got £98,999,554.

And for next season it’s suggested the lowest earner in the division will earn about the same as Arsenal did this season.

Phenomenal sums – and to be honest frightening and disgusting but it’s the way the game now is.

For anyone interested in the parachute payment breakdown, that’s as below.
