Premier League prize money: See how much your club has earned in the top flight since 1992

25 May

Arsenal became the first club to earn over £100m in a single season from prize earnings when the figures were released by the Premier League this week.

The prize earnings takes into account domestic and overseas TV income (of which clubs get an equal share), league position and facility fees for the number of times they appear on TV over the course of a season.

Such is the wealth of the Premier League, that basement club Aston Villa – who earned £66m this season – received £23m more than Bundesliga champions and Champions League semi-finalists Bayern Munich.

In the 24 years of the Premier League, clubs have so far shared between then £14.8bn. If you needed any proof at how much the league has grown, the prize money for the first season, 1992/93, was only £38m shared between 22 clubs, whereas this season it was a colossal £1.64bn.


And it will not stop there with the new Premier League TV deal set to kick in next season, meaning the average prize earnings awarded to each club will be around £125m.

As a result, this means the £1bn barrier for all-time prize earnings will be broken next season for the first time.
