Premier League Top 20 Richest Clubs
English Premier League giants Manchester United have edged past rivals Manchester City to top Premier League Top 20 Richest Clubs.
This was despite City leaving United in the dust during their record-breaking campaign where they lifted the EPL title with 100 points, 19 points ahead of United.
The stellar campaign, however, saw the Citizens earn £328,491m less than United who pocketed a staggering £149.77m.
According to BBC, United earned more than City because two more of their matches were shown live in the UK – which meant their facilities fee was £2.26m higher.
In the UK, a club’s total payment is made up of broadcast revenue, of which 50% is shared equally between clubs.
Twenty-five per cent of the payment is shared based on the number of live UK television matches, and 25% is based on league position.
Pep Guardiola’s side received £38.63m for winning the league, £1.93m more than the Red Devils.
