LONDON — Chelsea collected £150.8 million (US$195 million) in broadcast revenue and prize money for winning the English Premier League.
That's almost two-thirds more than Leicester banked for winning the previous year's title, with Chelsea profiting from new television deals.
Sunderland was relegated earlier this month as the last-place team but still earned £93.5 million.
The league's commercial and international broadcast revenue is split equally, giving each club £39 million each.
Half of the domestic TV revenue is split equally between the 20 clubs, amounting to £35.3 million. A quarter of it is distributed depending on a team's finishing place and the remaining quarter based on the domestic TV appearances. That explains why Manchester City and Liverpool earned more cash than Tottenham despite finishing directly below the runners-up.
