The Daily Mail have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur made more than £146m after coming fourth in the Premier League last season.
The report explains that the Premier League distributes a proportion of the domestic and international broadcast funds evenly to all 20 clubs – £31m and £48m respectively.
However, teams also stand to earn varying amounts based on their league finish (merit payment) and facility fees, which are paid out every time a Premier League club appears in a live televised game.
As a result of Tottenham featuring in three more live games than Chelsea last season, the North London club earned £146,081,427, which is higher than the Blues’ earning of £145,625,228, despite Antonio Conte’s men finishing one place lower in the table.
Unsurprisingly, champions Manchester City earned the most at £153,090,894 while Norwich City still earned over £100m despite finishing bottom of the table.
In total, all 20 clubs combined, took home more than £2.5billion during the 2021/22 campaign.
