Eye-Watering Amounts English Premier League Teams Got in Prize Money This Season Revealed

Eye-Watering Amounts English Premier League Teams Got in Prize Money This Season Revealed

The eye-watering amounts English Premier League teams have got in prize money for the 2018/19 season have been revealed.

The English season is in the bag, with Manchester City completing a domestic treble after winning the league title, Carabao Cup and FA Cup in a very memorable season for Pep Guardiola.

Liverpool finished second, with Chelsea and Tottenham sat in third and fourth to make up the top four and the teams qualifying for Champions League football next season.

At the bottom, Huddersfield, Fulham and Cardiff were relegated to the Championship.

But how did all of that impact the prize money given out for the 18/19 Champions League season?

According to Sportingintelligence on Twitter, all 20 teams still earned staggering amounts in cash for the campaign:

As you can see, City earned almost £151million for the season as league champions, but it was Liverpool who topped the list with £152million earned.

That amount of money makes more sense when you consider City were on TV 26 times and Liverpool appeared 29 times.

But it’s the money earned by the teams down the bottom which is really staggering.

Huddersfield finished bottom, winning just three games all season, but still earned nearly £97million.

Fulham – who won seven games – and Cardiff – who won 10 – earned £102million and £103million respectively.

All 20 teams combined for a prize pot of £2,456,008,346.

Just imagine that sort of money in Scottish football.
