Premier League reveal the 2017/18 payments to clubs following season

Manchester City will be hoping to retain the Premier League title in 2018/19

The Premier League have revealed their 2017/18 payments to clubs, with Manchester United receiving more than local rivals City despite finishing 19 points behind them in the table.

All clubs are entitled to a £34.8m 'Equal Share' payment, whilst international TV deals also see a £40.7m sum.

Central Commercial, which is revenue generated and equally shared, also sees clubs receive a figure of £4.8m.

Broadcasting revenue in the UK sees 50% equally shared; 25% shared based on how often a club’s matches are broadcast in the UK (known as 'Facility Fees'); and 25 per cent shared based on where a club finish in the league table (known as 'Merit Payments').

United saw a higher share of Facility Fees, although City were granted a bigger Merit Payment due to their league position.

Jose Mourinho's men were shown a total of 28 times on UK television, joint with Liverpool, which aided them in gaining £32.6m in Facility Fees.

Despite finishing bottom of the table, West Brom netted a £94.6m payment, of which just £1.9m was performance-based on their league position.

Crystal Palace's revival under Roy Hodgson saw them end up 11th in the standings, which helped them receive £14m more than if they had finished in the bottom three.

Huddersfield Town's survival in the Premier League has seen them gain £102.3m this season, and they're set to hit the same mark next season if they can find repeat performances.
