City hit jackpot with £96.5m league prize

Manchester City earned £96.5m from the Barclays Premier League for winning the title, representing a sharp rise from the £60.8m Manchester United earned for topping the table a year ago.

The league's new £5.5bn broadcast deal was behind the increase in payments, with second-placed Liverpool the top earners on £97.5m - a consequence of more of their games being screened live by broadcasters.

The Premier League Founder Members' Agreement sets out that 50% of UK broadcast revenue be split equally between the 20 clubs, 25% paid in merit payments (depending on where a club finishes in the final league table). All international broadcast revenue, and central commercial revenue, is split equally among the 20 clubs.
