Premier League 2012/13: Prize money breakdown

Published 6 Comments


The Premier League has once again reached its conclusion and despite not having all the drama it had last season, it was still a thrilling end to the greatest club league in world football.

Before the day had started, the focus was on the race for Champions League as north London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal battled it out for the final Champions League spot.

Arsenal travelled to St James' Park to face Newcastle United, knowing that a win would guarantee them a top-four finish, but if they were to slip-up, it would give Spurs the chance to finish above their rivals if they could see of Sunderland.

After the final whistles in the Premier League, it was Arsenal that were celebrating as they beat Newcastle 1-0 thanks to a Laurent Koscielny goal.

A lot of people were saying before the game that not many teams have a lot to play for and only a couple of games mean something, but that is simply not the case.

For every league position a team finishes in the league, the more money they earn. The higher you finish the more the club earns.

So every game does mean something for every club because they want to fight for more money so that they can spend in the summer.

The winners of the Premier League Manchester United won an impressive £15,101,240 for finishing first, whilst bottom-club Queens Park Rangers still pocketed an impressive sum of £755,062.
