EPL clubs set for windfall after $8 billion domestic TV rights deal

The English Premier League (EPL) will gross nearly $8 billion from its latest domestic television rights deal.

The deal for the three seasons from 2016 covers 168 live matches per season, with BSkyB to show 126 games, including Friday night matches for the first time.

The money is shared among the clubs with 50% of the amount divided equally, 25% awarded as a result of their finishing position in the league and the final quarter distributed to clubs depending on how many of its games are screened live on television.
