Manchester United earned slightly more money than champions Manchester City from the Premier League last season, despite City’s record-breaking campaign.
United, who finished second, received £149.77m, £328,491 more than City.
United were paid more because two more of their matches were shown live in the UK – which meant their facilities fee was £2.26m higher.
In total Premier League clubs received £2.42bn, £2.1m more than last season.
Jose Mourinho’s United were shown live on UK television 28 times this season, the same number as Liverpool and Arsenal, with City screened 26 times.
A club’s total payment is made up of UK broadcast revenue – of which 50% is shared equally between clubs, 25% is shared based on the number of live UK television matches, and 25% is based on league position – central commercial revenues and international broadcasting revenues.
City received £38.63m for winning the league, £1.93m more than second-placed United.
