Manchester United lands record Premier League broadcast payment

Manchester United has received a record broadcast payment of £60.8m for the 2012-13 Premier League season.

The English Premier League has announced Manchester United received a record broadcast payment of £60.8m (€72m/$92.5m) for the 2012-13 season of the league.

The ratio of payments from the top to the bottom-earning club was 1.53:1, with relegated Queens Park Rangers having received the lowest sum of £39.8 million.

The Founder Members’ Agreement of the Premier League rules that 50% of UK broadcast revenue is split equally between the 20 clubs, 25% is paid in merit payments, and the final 25% is paid in facility fees each time a club’s matches are broadcast in the UK.

All international broadcast revenue is split equally amongst the 20 clubs.
