How much prize money will Manchester City earn for winning the Premier League?

Manchester City look set to make history by becoming the only team to win the Premier League in four consecutive seasons.

Manchester City look set to make history by becoming the only team to win the Premier League in four consecutive seasons.

We know how it goes: death, taxes and City winning. The truth behind that statement takes away the irony that would make it a poor joke, but by this point, I wouldn’t be surprised for Moses to flip over the stone tablets and see it written on the back of the Ten Commandments.

Pep Guardiola’s side looked to be hanging on against West Ha- no, they never looked like that. Phil Foden took the ball on the edge of the box after just 60 seconds and sent a Saturn V rocket into the corner of Areola’s goal. Minutes later they scored again, and when word of Arsenal conceding against Everton filtered through the Etihad, the party really got going: City were set to win the Premier League for the fourth time in a row.

How much for winning the Premier League 2021/22?

For their first placed finish, the Etihad club will collect a tidy enough fee of £62.1m, with £59m going to the team that finishes second place in the Premier League. The numbers vary between the two teams, Arsenal and City, given the fact that at the time of writing, we don’t know (wink, wink) where they’ll finish.

It’s a sliding scale from there down, with third placed Liverpool set to earn £55.9m, all the way to to the team that finish rock bottom in this case Sheffield United, who take home ‘pocket change’ of £3.1m. Enough for Wilder to buy a few sandwiches at least.

Here are, according to Football365, what each team stands to earn once the season is finally over:

Of course, the football never stops, and as soon as the Premier League title race wraps up, we can focus on the upcoming Champions League final between Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund. That comes after the FA Cup final between Manchester City and Manchester United, as well as the Championship Playoff Final, between Leeds United and Southampton.

Then, after all that goodness, we’ve got the EURO 2024 championship as well as the Copa América during the off-season for club teams. No rest for the wicked. In fact, it’s no rest for anyone, wicked or not.
