Manchester Utd. Earns $92 Million in TV Income After League Win

May 21 (Bloomberg) -- Manchester United earned 60.8 million pounds ($92.1 million) in broadcast payments as it won its 20th English championship this season.

United’s total included 15.1 million pounds in “merit payment” for finishing atop the league and 13.0 million from its games being shown on domestic television, according to a statement from the Premier League. It’s the highest total ever awarded to the title winner.

Manchester City earned 58.1 million pounds as runner-up in the 20-team league. Arsenal received 57.1 million pounds and Tottenham got 55.9 million pounds for finishing fourth and fifth respectively, more than third-place Chelsea, which earned 55.0 million pounds.

Queens Park Rangers, relegated to the second-tier Championship after finishing in last place, was the lowest-earning club at 39.8 million pounds. Reading, which finished in 19th place, received 40.0 million pounds and Wigan, the other demoted team, got 40.8 million pounds.

In addition to money based on their position in the standings and number of appearances made on domestic television, each club’s total included 13.8 million pounds from U.K. broadcast rights and 18.9 million pounds from overseas television.
