Leicester are in the money, but even though they are the Premier League champions, they don’t top the prize money table.
Official figures for the 2015/16 season have been released and here is how it is broken down:
Each club gets an equal share of both domestic (£21,924,800) and overseas TV income (£29,415,848) as well as a central commercial payment of £4,509,152 for things like sponsors.
There is £1,242,405 per place, which is the fee Aston Villa earned compared to the £24,848,100 Leicester collected.
In addition there is a ‘facility fee’ for the number of times teams appear on the TV. Every club gets a minimum of £8,782,088 for 10 games or less, then an extra £747,922 for each televised game after that.
