Leeds United enjoyed a stunning first Premier League campaign in 16 years as Marcelo Bielsa masterminded a ninth-placed finish - but how much money did they earn?

The Premier League is yet to confirm officially the amount earned by each individual top flight outfit this season, though the figures involved have confidently been forecast based on previous earnings in recent seasons.

Clubs receive more money based on their final ranking in the standings, along with a 'facility fee' for how many times they're broadcast live on TV - due to the Covid-19 pandemic, though, this has become slightly skewed with fans being locked out of grounds.

Under the Sky Sports and BT Sport contracts, 200 of the 380 games were due to be broadcast already therefore the money is still calculated on that basis despite all games being shown amid the global crisis.

Teams who were involved in the 2019/20 campaign were also forced to contribute some money back to broadcasters following the disruption to the campaign last year.

Leeds weren't in the top flight nor did they receive parachute payments in that time period therefore are not part of the rebate deal with the other 19 Premier League clubs.

The estimated figures are based on methods of previous seasons by football finance guru Nick Harris (a.k.a Sporting Intel) - you can read the full breakdown here and check out the figures below ranked by order of the final Premier League standings...
