Liverpool earn most from Premier League - despite finishing behind Manchester City

All teams see sharp rise in payments from last season

The Premier League has announced the total payments made to each of its 20 members for the 2013/14 season.

Champions Manchester City earned £96.5million, representing a sharp rise from the £60.8m Manchester United earned from winning the league a year ago.

The league's new £5.5billion broadcast deal was behind the increase in payments, with second-placed Liverpool the top earners on £97.5m - a consequence of more of their games being screened live by broadcasters.

The Premier League Founder Members' Agreement - the contract signed by the initial clubs that formed the League in 1992 - sets out that 50 per cent of UK broadcast revenue be split equally between the 20 clubs, 25 per cent paid in Merit Payments (depending on where a club finishes in the final league table), and the final 25 per cent 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.

Premier League payments to clubs for 2013/14 (highest-lowest):

1 Liverpool £97,544,336

2 Man City £96,578,329
