The end of another season has arrived, marked by its twists, turns, and controversy, as Manchester City secured their fourth consecutive triumph and the three clubs descend back to the Championship.

However, each of the 20 teams will have accumulated over £100 million in prize money for their efforts over the past 10 months, reaffirming the Premier League's status as football's financial powerhouse.

Projections have indicated that this season's earnings will closely resemble those of the previous one, indicating that Man City will rake in a sum of £170mil in addition to their achievements and trophies.

Despite enduring one of the most dismal seasons in Premier League history, even Sheffield United are poised to secure a substantial nine-figure sum, notwithstanding their bottom finish and conceding over 100 goals.

This substantial revenue can be chiefly attributed to the unparalleled global broadcasting income of the Premier League.

Each club receives nearly £80mil in equal share payments from global TV deals, plus an additional £10mil in commercial funds, per Yahoo Sports.

The clubs also receive a facility fee of approximately £900,000 for each match broadcast live on UK television.

How much prize money does the Premier League award?

However, the significant divergence lies in merit payments, which are allocated on a sliding scale corresponding to final standings.

Last season, and expected to remain similar this year, each position was valued at £3.1mil, ensuring that the champions would receive £62.3mil.

This calculation excludes the potential windfall from qualifying for the Champions League, which could add another £100mil to a club's coffers based on their performance in the subsequent season.

While the Premier League will not disclose exact figures until early 2025 through their annual report, Mirror Sports reports that the following estimations are unlikely to deviate significantly by position.
