Premier League announces payments to clubs in season 2014/15
Wed 3rd Jun 2015 | Marketing & PR
The Premier League has announced the value of the central income payments made to its clubs in the 2014/15 season.
The revenue distributed to clubs includes income generated from the sale of central broadcasting rights (UK and international) and other central commercial rights.
The mechanism for distributing this revenue is the most equitable of Europe’s major football leagues and is based on the Premier League Founder Members' Agreement, the contract signed by the initial clubs that formed the League in 1992.
It has resulted in a ratio of 1.53:1 between of the club finishing top and that finishing bottom in 2014/15 and works as follows:
- 50% of UK broadcast revenue split equally between the 20 clubs
- 25% of UK broadcast revenue paid in Merit Payments ("Prize Money" per place in the table)
- 25% of UK broadcast revenue 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 among the 20 clubs.
