Premier League broadcast deals mean huge windfall for clubs

Even the Premier League's relegated clubs, such as Fulham, will receive a huge television windfall

The Premier League champions stand to rake in £95million from TV money this season while even the bottom club will earn £63million.

The huge value of new £5.5billion Premier League broadcast deals will be highlighted by the fact that whoever finishes bottom of the table on Sunday should earn more from TV money than the £60.8million Manchester United were paid after winning the league last season.

The new champions are expected to be paid £35million more, and the bottom club around £24million more than QPR earned after finishing bottom last season.

The Premier League has confirmed its merit money payments of £1.2million for every place each club finishes up the table, rising to £24million for the champions. That represents a 60% rise on last season.

Facility fees of £750,000 will be paid to a club for every live TV appearance, with a minimum payment of £7.5million.

There has been no confirmation from the league of the equal shares that will be paid to clubs for domestic and overseas broadcasting deals, but they are expected to rise by 60% and 70% respectively - in line with the increases in those deals - to £23million and £32million per club.

The huge rise in income should help a number of clubs turn their financial fortunes around, especially if they have been able to minimise wage bill rises for players this season.

How the Premier League payments will be calculated:

:: £1.2million paid for every place a club finishes in the league, up to £24million for the champions.

:: facility fees of £750,000 for every time a club appears on a live TV match, with a minimum of £7.5million.

:: equal share from domestic broadcast deals - not yet confirmed but expected to be around 60% increase to £23million per club.

:: equal share from overseas broadcast deals - not yet confirmed but expected to be around 70% increase to £32million per club.
