CRYSTAL Palace's first season in the Premier League has been welcomed by a £73.2m income. The main source of income from the Premier League this season was that of television payments from around the world. Agreed at the start of the campaign, Premier League clubs agreed that 50 per cent of the UK broadcasting would be be split equally among the 20 clubs, in addition to overseas broadcast revenue, which will be split equally as well. All of the broadcast revenues amounted to a £47.9m income. The Eagles were broadcasted live on the box ten times this season and as a result received the tenth-highest television revenue in 2013/14. Stoke City, Fulham, Cardiff, Norwich, West Bromwich Albion and Hull City all featured less times than the club from south London. Tony Pulis' side received more than double of what third-placed Arsenal received last season due to the new television deal that started at the start of the season. Palace have also received more than £12.3m for finishing in 11th place, £8.6m in facility fees for each time a club's match is broadcasted in the UK and just under £4.3m in central commercial revenue of the league which is split equally.
