Premier League pays Man Utd more than champions Man City

Latest news

    Manchester City finished with a record total of 100 points

    Manchester United earned slightly more money than champions Manchester City from the Premier League last season, despite City’s record-breaking campaign.

    United, who finished second, received £149.77m, £328,491 more than City.

    United were paid more because two more of their matches were shown live in the UK – which meant their facilities fee was £2.26m higher.

    In total Premier League clubs received £2.42bn, £2.1m more than last season.

    Jose Mourinho’s United were shown live on UK television 28 times this season, the same number as Liverpool and Arsenal, with City screened 26 times.

    A club’s total payment is made up of UK broadcast revenue – of which 50% is shared equally between clubs, 25% is shared based on the number of live UK television matches, and 25% is based on league position – central commercial revenues and international broadcasting revenues.
