What is the prize money for the English Premier League promotion?

Three clubs in the English Football League Championship (a second-tier league) are promoted to the Premier League every year. Such promotions often involve a large prize money sum.

The exact figures received for earning a promotion to the Premier League are unknown to the public.

However, teams (especially those that win the championship playoffs) are estimated to receive up to £170 million ($216.27 million) distributed across three seasons.

The longer the promoted team stays in the top-flight league, the more it continues to earn.

Other forms of income for Premier League clubs

Premier League clubs enjoy other income revenues besides the EPL prize money share. These include:

1. TV rights money

The Premier League enjoys very lucrative TV rights deals.

For example, the league’s current deal with broadcast networks Sky Sports, Amazon Prime Video, BBC Sports, and TNT Sports is worth £5 billion ($6.36 billion) over three years.

Premier League also earns billions from other international TV rights and league sponsorship deals. Much of the money from these deals is distributed to the 20 teams competing in the top-flight league.

For example, in the 2022-2023 season, Premier League clubs received the following amounts from TV rights deals:

  • £31.4 million ($39.96 million) – Guaranteed equal share for every club in the Premier League.
  • £47.5 million ($60.45 million) – International TV rights.
  • £5.9 million ($7.3 million) – Central commercial payments.
  • Facility fees – It depends on the number of televised matches a club is involved in.

2. Ticket sales and sponsorship deals

English Premier League clubs earn money through ticket sales for stadium matches and individual sponsorship deals.

For ticket sales, several Premier League clubs earned over £50 million, with top earners like Arsenal, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur collecting over £100 million.

Premier League clubs also have several sponsorship deals, the most common being shirt sponsors.

The deals vary from club to club, but they are very lucrative, reaching over £40 million per season for top clubs.

The above is a complete breakdown of the English Premier League prize money for the 2024 season. So, how much do you think your favorite Premier League club will win?
