La Liga TV income dwarfed by England Premier League

Only three Spanish clubs earned more from TV rights in La Liga than English Premier League club Huddersfield Town, it has been confirmed.

Only Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid earned more in the 2017/18 campaign than Huddersfield’s €109.38m in the 2018/19 season.

The Catalan giants were the top earners in Spain with €154m - a lower figure than each of England’s top six clubs, with Liverpool (€172.55m) topping the list.

19 of England’s 20 top flight clubs also earned a higher sum than Atletico (€110.6m) in another figure to highlight the disparity between the two divisions.

Sevilla were the fourth highest earning La Liga side that season but their figure of €74m was insignificant in comparison, while fourth-place Valencia earned just €65.7m.
