Starting from the 2025-26 season, Premier League’s top clubs, including Manchester City are set to receive a greater share of prize money, potentially worth tens of millions more, under a new 1.8 to one ratio.
According to the Telegraph, the potential for more money going to the top clubs is attributed to the Consumer Prices Index and international growth. However, a higher rate of inflation is expected to benefit smaller clubs with a more favourable rate next season.
Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham have been at odds with other top-flight clubs over the payment structure for the new solidarity system.
Despite lingering reservations, there appears to be broad support for the Premier League’s New Deal, representing the biggest financial shake-up in decades. Pressure is said to be ‘building’ to finally announce a deal following Everton’s 10-point deduction over spending breaches.
