According to a report from the Sussex Express, Tottenham Hotspur will win prize money of £148.3m if they secure a fourth-place finish in the Premier League this season.
Following Arsenal’s 2-0 loss at Newcastle United on Monday, Spurs go into the final game of the campaign against Norwich two points clear in the race for fourth place.
Given Tottenham’s vastly superior goal difference in comparison to their North London rivals, Antonio Conte’s men know that a draw at Carrow Road will be enough for them to seal Champions League qualification.
Sussex Express have now looked into how much each Premier League team will earn depending on where they finish in the table.
The report explains that the prize money for each team, which includes television and broadcasting revenue of the Premier League, will be divided based on where each team finishes in the table.
The higher in the table a team finishes, the bigger the portion of the revenue that the club earns.
According to the report, finishing in fifth place will earn a club prize money of £141.3m while a fourth-place finish will be rewarded with £148.3m.
That means that Spurs have a chance to earn £7m extra in prize money by getting a result at Carrow Road on Sunday.

It is worth keeping in mind that this is just the prize money handed out by the Premier League. Finishing in the Champions League places will be worth a lot more for clubs, given the additional revenue from the tournament as well as the increase in matchday income owing to having more matches at the stadium.
Tottenham Hotspur are particularly well placed to maximise the revenue from being in the Champions League, given the high earning potential of their new stadium – both concerning food and drinks, as well as due to a high proportion of premium seats. Finishing in the top four consistently is thus crucial to our ability to spend big in the transfer market.
