The Premier League have announced the commercial revenue payments – comprising of International TV and UK broadcast – to clubs for the 2018/19 season with Liverpool coming out tops having gained £152.4million despite finishing runners-up to eventual winners, Manchester City.
The Reds took home more than the Citizens having been televised three times more back-to-back Premier League title winners, Manchester City.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool were the most televised team in the Premier League domestically, appearing a total of 29 times all season.
City on the other hand appeared 26 of their 38 league fixtures and accrued a revenue totalling £150.97million.
The chase for the Premier league title this year was dragged down to the wire with the media and football fans alike glued to their screens to see who comes out tops.
Indeed, no team banked in excess of £150million last campaign.
Chelsea who finished third on the listing went home with £146million, £800,000 more than fourth-place, Tottenham Hotspur.
Sixth-place Manchester United who appeared on UK TV more times (27) than any other team save for Liverpool raked in a total sum of £142.5million.
At the bottom end of the standings was Huddersfield who pocketed £96.6million and were the only Premier League side not to have hit the £100million mark.
That said, that figure is significantly greater than the £57.94million earned this year by Valencia, despite booking a Champions League spot with a fourth-place finish on the La Liga standings.
Fulham and Cardiff who are now condemned to Champions League football next season claimed £101.9million and £102.7million respectively.
Although the Premier League claim that all clubs reached the agreed upon 10 matches live on UK TV mark, Huddersfield, Bournemouth and Southampton were shown only eight times live across the campaign either via BT Sports or Sky Sports.
