Broadcast payments made to Barclays Premier League clubs for the 2013/14 season

Wed 14th May 2014 | Television & Broadcasting

The Barclays Premier League 2013/14 season was one of the most competitive and exciting in the League's 22 year history.

The lead at the top of the table changed 25 times during the campaign - compared to only four in 2012/13 - and the top two clubs, Manchester City and Liverpool, each scored more than 100 goals.

Match-going fans enjoyed the football like never before with record stadium occupancy of 95.9%.

The way in which the Premier League distributes its central revenues - the most equitable of any major League in Europe - allowed the clubs to invest in all elements of their operations.

All clubs were able to compete in the transfer market, and there was significant investment in their Youth Development Academies as they implemented the second year of the Elite Player Performance Plan.

That meant more and better coaching, better facilities, improved education and welfare across Academies, all with the number one stated aim of producing more and better home-grown players.

All clubs committed to the Away Supporter Initiative, investing in schemes that improved the away fan experience, and important new technology was introduced by in the Goal Decision System that has enhanced the competition for players, match officials, fans and broadcasters.

The Premier League Founder Members’ Agreement - the contract signed by the initial clubs that formed the League in 1992 - sets out that 50% of UK broadcast revenue be split equally between the 20 clubs, 25% paid in Merit Payments (depending on where a club finishes in the final League table), and the final 25% paid in Facility Fees each time a club’s matches are broadcast in the UK.

All international broadcast revenue, and central commercial revenue, is split equally amongst the 20 clubs.

Despite finishing second in the table, Liverpool received the highest total payment with £97.5m, the largest amount of central revenue that any club has received in a Premier League season. This is because they had the highest number of matches picked for live broadcast in the UK (28). Newly crowned Barclays Premier League champions Manchester City received £96.6m during 2013/14. The ratio between the top and bottom earning club was 1.57:1.

The collective nature of the Premier League allows the clubs and the League to work together to support and invest in good causes, community and schools football, and the professional game throughout the football pyramid.

In the last year the new Premier League and FA Facilities Fund has seen 52 new Artificial Grass Pitches built across the country. Our support for schools football included investing in the English Schools FA to support the delivery of the Premier League U16 Schools Cup, in which 700 schools took part this year.

Along with Premier League club Foundations, the League is investing in and supporting hundreds of projects across the country, such as Premier League 4 Sport and Premier League Kicks, which ensure that more young people are playing football and other sports.

The Premier League continues to invest in the Football League and Football Conference, including solidarity payments to all clubs totalling tens of millions of pounds, ring-fenced funding for Youth Development schemes, and investment in Football League and Football Conference community sport projects.
