Tottenham’s participation in this season’s Premier League will earn them £148.1million of TV money, according to a report.

The Times claim in their Game section (14 May, page four) the north London club are to pocket the fourth-highest sum of broadcasting revenue as a result of 25 of their matches being shown on Sky Sports and BT Sports.

Tottenham have earned £82million as a base TV fee, £30.3million for the number of their Premier League games screened and a further £35.8million for holding on to third place in the table.

The figures are compiled from official Premier League distribution data.

Football Insider verdict:

The £148million windfall is a jawdropping sum and demonstrates how broadcasting revenue forms such a key plank of the turnover of any Premier League club. Spurs posted a £41.2million profit in their recently-published financial results on a total revenue of £306.3million and the 2017-18 windfall is not only virtually half of the club’s income stream but will go a long way to contributing to another tasty set of results for the current season. Little wonder money men Daniel Levy and Joe Lewis put such store in nailing down a high league finish, and why FA Cup and League Cup results take on secondary value. With a top-three finish secured for a third consecutive campaign, the board of directors can budget for another major pay day. Huge credit must go to Mauricio Pochettino for building a vibrant and exciting team that broadcasters are so keen to regularly screen. Only Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool have been shown on TV more often this season.
