Leicester's New Ranking Among Richest Clubs Shows How Farcical The New Premier League TV Deal Is

Leicester's New Ranking Among Richest Clubs Shows How Farcical The New Premier League TV Deal Is
By Conor O'Leary

So much has been made of the historic TV deal that the Premier League just signed with Sky and BT Sports. The £5.14 billion deal was a 71% increase on the cost of the previous TV rights, and it shows how powerful the Premier League product is.

English clubs were already dominating the football's richest clubs market - before this season and global phenomenon, Leicester City were ranked as the 24th richest club in the world in terms of income generation. Now though, after winning the title - their status among the world's elite in sport is set to grow to ludicrous numbers.

According to the Mail on Sunday, the Foxes are expected to leap over worldwide brands such as AC Milan and into the top 15 - even before the benefit from the massive TV deal with the Premier League and Champions League.

With a top-eight finish and group-stage elimination from next year's Champions League - Leicester will almost double their earnings from winning the title this year. Not a bad time for an outsider to come from nowhere to spoil the top four's dominance.

Leicester's remarkable story is also catapulting them up the most watched sports team in the world - ahead of global brands like the New York Yankees - in fact, they are projected to rank sixth in that list - behind only rival Premier League teams.
