The official figures for 2017/18 Premier League Prize Money have now been revealed.

What every Premier League club received.

Also, from which revenue streams the amounts came from to make up each club’s overall total.

Once again, the Premier League is shown yet again to be one of the fairest when it comes to sharing the revenue generated by the league as a whole.

Manchester United have actually got the highest amount, thanks to finishing second in the table and ridiculously being live on TV twice more than the brilliant champions Manchester City.

However, the three relegated clubs have still all banked around two thirds of what the two Manchester clubs at the top have been allocated.

The top fair getting just under £150m for this 2017/18 season, whilst the three going down will all get just a little under £100m.

As for Newcastle United, they get the eighth highest amount of cash, despite finishing 10th in the league. NUFC getting more money than both 7th place Burnley and 9th place Leicester because of more live TV matches.

Newcastle’s total is £123,018,207 (a couple of million less than the forecasted figures published in recent days).

This comprises of the following:

£34,812,558 – Equal share of domestic TV deals – all clubs get this amount

£40,771,108 – Equal share of overseas TV deals – all clubs get this amount

£4,838,892 – Equal share of commercial deals arranged by Premier League – all clubs get this amount

£21,351,701 – Facility fees – The extra cash thanks to being on UK live TV 18 times in 2017/18

£21,243,948 – Merit money – Money paid depending on how high you finish in the Premier League.

  • Paul Patterson

    That’ll be £21,351,701 to spend then. That’s what the club has ‘generated itself’.

    • MichaelMaximusMoose

      That`s £10m more than last summer

  • fistsofsteel2

    Where does the TV money come from? Anyone with any sense doesn’t pay for sky sports anymore, or any sports channels.

    • MichaelMaximusMoose

      Just look in the mirror, as Newcastle supporters we`ve put up with & paid the Billionaire Barrow Boy for 11 stinking years

    • Geordiegiants

      You lot don’t need to worry it’s going to be a long time until you’s get premier league money.

  • MichaelMaximusMoose

    My, my won`t the Fat Pig be over the Moon,
    It`ll do a Tommy Cooper

  • mactoon

    It’ll be interesting to hear how Ashley gets out of paying Rafa a significant amount for transfers after hearing this news.

    • HarryHype59

      No doubt there will be some type of contrived accounting nonsense e.g. M ASH holdings could take £60m to part repay the £145m loans to Mike Ashley.

      • Fireman Sam

        that is exactly what he will do. He will pocket £80m this season then take a massive gamble on next season with £0 investment. If we stay up, he will pay himself another £80m if we go down, he will sell the whole team, pocket another £80m and then put the club into administration.

        Wouldn’t put it past him

  • Bowlsey

    The ball is in Ashley’s court now, just like it always has been. Rafa is willing to stay, wants to stay even, but not at the expense of making a fool out of himself by buying into another pack of lies about promised transfer funds that never materialize. Rafa has a plan for Newcastle. He loves the club, the city, the fans and we love him. Everything is in place for Newcastle United to challenge for honours once again under his leadership. Over to you, Ashley…tick tock tick tock…

    • Paul Patterson

      The thing is, Ashley is likely to do what he always does and take his ball and say ‘F**k you, I’m not playing’ . .

      • Bowlsey

        I understand the utter deflated sense of cynicism from fellow Toon fans when it come to anything to do with Ashley, but he’s a businessman. An extremely successful one. Where is the business sense in withholding money from the the best manager we’ve had in donkeys years and preventing him from improving Newcastle United and also risking Rafa walking and another relegation?! Why would Ashley want to devalue his own asset?! I don’t pretend to know what makes the guy tick but I have a good idea that it has a papery quality to it and the Queen’s face printed on it. Ashley giving Rafa what he wants is surely a win win situation for everybody!

        • Wezza147

          Because he has always done this. He may be a successful businessman but he is a pure failure for Newcastle United. 2 relegations, nearly more, debt and money that vanishes. He sees the money side a success because he has made hundreds of millions from us.

    • Fireman Sam

      The TV money is in Ashleys court now, and neither NUFC or Rafa will get a penny of it

  • Weyhhadaway

    Rafa’s hand just gets stronger every day, if he walks he can choose between Everton, the Hammers Fun toy store and probably Leicester, or a host of Continental clubs for that matter.

    If he stays he will get about 20 sheckles and a goat to spend, mmmm let that sink in for a minute. if he leaves there is a compensation clause which would put another 6M in the bank for the fat lad, with a choice of Alardarce, Moyes or our old friend P45due to come in.

    Mana mana do do de dubu…………

    Throwing my Cynicism out, we are in the best position for years to push into the top half of the table and make money for the owner, win win. Lets put a few quid on keeping us there instead of betting on failure.

  • TheNutJob

    I hear Fatty`s getting a new heliport built at his hoose

  • Fireman Sam

    Now lets see how fat Mike makes that money vanish

    now you see it now you dont

    • Wezza147

      Yep. It’s more than likely already gone in MASH Holdings.
