Manchester United have become the first club to top the £60million mark in earnings from Premier League prize money and TV cash.

United earned £60.4million as the new record overseas TV deals saw top-flight clubs bring in up to £7million more than last season.

Blackpool were the lowest earners of the Premier League but still saw £39.1million go into their coffers, while Chelsea earned £57.7m, Manchester City £55.5m and Arsenal £56.2m.

The figures released by the Premier League also show that it has the smallest difference in earnings between the champions and the bottom club in terms of ratio of any major league in Europe.

England's top club earned 1.54 times as much as the bottom in TV money - down from 1.66 last season. In Spain, where TV rights are negotiated on a club-by-club basis, Real Madrid and Barcelona earn 12.5 times more than the smallest clubs in La Liga.

Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore said: "We believe that our income distribution mechanism, the most equitable of Europe's major football leagues, rewards sporting success while also guaranteeing a significant amount to each club in order that they can plan from one season to the next.

"Many have commented on the competitive nature of this season's Barclays Premier League.

"The clubs deserve huge credit for putting on a fantastic competition. We believe the way we distribute broadcast income plays a part in allowing each club to compete at the highest level."

The Premier League distributes TV rights money based partly on performance, partly via equal shares of TV income, and partly on the number of times a club's matches are screened live on domestic television.

This season, each club received £13.8million as the equal share of domestic TV rights and £17.9million as the equal share of overseas TV rights.

On top of that, every place in the Premier League table is worth £756,000 - West Ham received that amount and Manchester United £15.1million.

Facility fees of £582,000 are paid to a club every time they play in a live TV match - with a minimum income of £5.82million even if a club has been involved in fewer than 10 live games.

The Premier League also pay out £15million each in parachute payments to previously relegated clubs Hull, Burnley, Portsmouth and Middlesbrough. The three relegated clubs this season will receive the same amount.

Real Madrid and Barca get twice that. And it's only 50% more than the bottom team. Not a big difference when you consider which team is box office.

One of the few things the Premier League can be proud of that, La Liga is a joke allowing them to sell their own rights.

We should use it all as part of the fund to buy Gareth Bale.

It's no longer pay back that debt, but rather buy back them bonds.

As good as it is for the rest of the league, you can see how much we get screwed with the collective deal.

Blackpool didn't do that much worse than us in the scheme of things.
It's something United opt into though, isn't it? The idea being that playing in a competitive league will ultimately provide more benefits financially than playing in a WWE style pantomime league like the Spanish?

We do pays for divident as well I believe when we're PLC, not all revenue = transfer, there's alot of things outside the pitch to consider, facility, youth academy, branding, marketing, etc.

Just a perspective

feck the collective deal off for overseas deals. Why should we 'the biggest club team in the world' get shafted? Don't let it get to La Liga style levels but we should receive at least another 20 million more for what we bring to the league.

Because the league would be shit without spending power. Look at the moves the midtable and below sides can make.

we already have Valencia on the right (and he is overall just as effective). we need variety and Nani provides that while being much more effective than Bale

Would any of them have the money they do without us?

I think an extra 20 million pounds would be a suitable figure. Its not the massive amounts that they get in Spain, but it gives us a bigger bite of the cherry that we had a substantial involvement in growing.

With sugar -daddys increasing season by season, the league will always remain competitive.
