With the 2015-16 season behind us, the final television allocation money based on final league positions have been confirmed – and here’s what Reading picked up in Premier League Parachute Payments for the season.

The Premier League have now announced the ‘central income payments’ made to clubs last season and the revenue distributed includes income generated from the sale of central broadcasting rights (UK and international) as well as other central Premier League commercial rights.

As you can imagine it’s not chicken feed and it will only be greater once the new television deal kicks into being in the future.

Ignoring the specifics, the table below shows what the riches were on offer in the Premier League in 2015/16 and in the order of which chief executives and owners will be smiling the most at the big fat Sky cheques.
