The unscripted drama of bottom teams beating top is created from the collective strength and equitable distribution of our broadcast revenues. The mechanism for distributing this revenue is based on the Premier League Founder Members' Agreement, the contract signed by the initial clubs that formed the League in 1992.
The agreement works as follows:
The table above – which also shows the finishing positions of the clubs – details the value of the central income payments made to our clubs in the 2014/15 season.
The Premier League clubs put their money to good use across a range of ventures big and small. Here we highlight what just a few of them have been working on this season.
Liverpool’s home improvement
Liverpool FC is redeveloping its Main Stand at Anfield as part of a wider £260m social and economic area regeneration programme. The expanded Main Stand will become one of the largest all-seater single stands in Europe, a new noisy home for their fans and an impressive addition to one of the most famous stadiums in world football.
Tottenham Hotspur builds foundations
Tottenham Hotspur is investing £1.8m in redeveloping Percy House to become their Foundation’s new head office. It will act as a major community enterprise, employment and skills hub located at the heart of the regeneration of North Tottenham. The new stadium site will also feature the first ever University Technical College sponsored by a football club.
Albion’s local history project
West Bromwich Albion is investing a six-figure sum in a Fan Zone on a historic site. The new supporters’ area will be situated in front of the old Hawthorns pub, a Grade II listed building, and will feature on-the-day catering and bar facilities, as well as matchday attractions for fans young and old.
Saints alive to the future
In November, Southampton expanded its impressive £30m Staplewood Academy facility with the opening of the Markus Leibherr Pavilion, which houses the club’s sports science, scouting and recruitment, football administration and medical departments, as well as training, changing and dining facilities. Construction of an inflatable dome over Staplewood’s 3G pitch has also begun.
