The staggering Premier League prize money Aston Villa are set to earn compared to Liverpool, Tottenham, Newcastle United and rivals

The mouthwatering prize money totals every team in the Premier League is expected to receive at the end of the 2023/24 season.

Aston Villa are enjoying their most successful season in decades with 19 wins eclipsing the previous record for a 38-game Premier League campaign. Unai Emery has done a spectacular job of guiding a team ravaged by injuries to a current fourth place. It will be tricky to fend off Tottenham Hotspur but Champions League football is seriously on the cards.

Not only has this season been particularly exciting and memorable, but finishing higher in the league standings means a larger prize money payout. Last term, the Villans walked away with £148.3 million, including the prize pot and payments for television rights. But how much could the total be this time around?

Figures in the Premier League’s annual report unveil every club will earn at least £91.7 million through the ‘equal share’ from the UK and international broadcast deals. In addition to that, teams will receive a ‘merit payment’ dependent on their final league position and ‘facility fees’ for additional UK TV showings.

Last season, every position higher in the table increased the merit payment by around £3.1 million due to lucrative international deals. These figures have likely increased this year, but to gauge a bare minimum we’ll stick by last term’s numbers. 

The facility fees then varied up and down the division, with Manchester City earning the most with £25.3 million and AFC Bournemouth the least with £10.2 million. To keep things fair while the final TV appearance numbers are ironed out, we’ll consider last season’s mean figure of £17.8 million.

Taking into account all these mouthwatering figures, here’s an estimate of how much total prize money all 20 clubs - if they stay in their current positions - are set to earn at the end of the 2023/24 season.
