Premier League revenues predicted to soar past £4.5bn in 2016/17

Premier League revenues predicted to soar past £4.5bn in 2016/17

In contrast, clubs in the top two divisions of Europe's second richest competition, Germany's Bundesliga and 2.Bundesliga, are expected to earn approximately £1.2bn per season during the same period.

First, there is the fact the Premier League clubs actually recorded a combined pre-tax loss in 2015-16, which Jones said was a result of "exceptional, or one-off, accounting adjustments".

Projected total earnings of the 20 English Premier League clubs last season.

Deloitte's review also found that total European football market revenues reached nearly €25bn (£22bn) in 2015/16, a 13% increase on 2014/15, driven by continued growth in broadcast rights values in European football's biggest leagues, and the impact of UEFA Euro 2016.

While the Premier League is the honey pot, Championship clubs are showing record spending levels in a bid to get there.

Mr Jones said Premier League clubs were now reaping the benefit of a new broadcast rights cycle which started in 2016-17, plus new commercial agreements, and match day revenue growth from new and expanded stadia.

Vermont is one such state, and its secretary, Jim Condos, spoke to ABC News about his concerns regarding disenfranchisement. Even Kobach's home state of Kansas said it won't turn over data to the commission because Kansas state law prohibits it.

The gap created by the Premier League is widening in England too, its £2.4bn annual TV deal is nearly 30 times greater than that of the EFL, which is reported to be now £90m across all three divisions.

Across all four divisions, the 92 clubs generated £4.4bn, another record, with new highs in spending, profits and tax also being recorded by the 26th edition of Deloitte's Annual Review of Football Finance.

City's success, on and off the pitch, also changed the approach of the "big six clubs" the Deloitte review reports. The 24 Championship clubs made £556m in total, over half of which came from parachute payments for relegated clubs, but paid £561m in wages, and had record total operating losses of £261m. vast bonanza to clubs promoted for the first time across English football's great financial divide, with Huddersfield Town and Brighton & Hove Albion set to receive a minimum £170m increase over the next three years, even if they are relegated after only one year.

With a more lucrative television broadcast rights deal coming into effect last summer, Deloitte expects Premier League clubs to post revenues in excess of £4.5bn for the 2016/17 season.

While Leicester City won the league title despite being ranked 15th by wage costs and while Chelsea finished eight places lower than their ranking, the report said the subsequent 2016-17 season showed a "stronger correlation between wage costs and league position".
