Champions Leicester made £93m while bottom club Aston Villa received £66.6m

Arsenal

25 May ~ Despite Leicester’s triumph, it was Arsenal who made the most money in the Premier League during the 2015-16 season. They earned £100,952,257 in total from the central Premier League funds, £4 million more than second-highest earners Manchester City. While Leicester obviously got the most “merit money” (based on league position), they were shown on TV just 15 times compared to Arsenal’s 27, meaning the Gunners earned £9m more than the champions in “facility fees”. At the bottom end Aston Villa earned the least – though that is still £66.6m – with Norwich City and Bournemouth just above them. Sporting Intelligence have a full breakdown of the figures here.
