The financial disparity between Serie A and Premier League clubs was made painfully evident by a survey showing the bottom English club earned more in TV rights than the top Italian side.
La Gazzetta dello Sport outline the precise way television rights were divided up between Serie A clubs during the 2021-22 campaign and suddenly it becomes clear.
The top-earning Italian club picked up €84.2m in revenue from television rights this season, followed by Juventus on €77.9m and Milan €77.8m.
In comparison, the club that finished bottom of the Premier League in the same season pocketed €105m from television rights alone.
The split in Serie A is calculated using both sporting results and the number of tickets and television packages sold.

Inter 84,2 mln
Juve 77,9 mln
Milan 77,8 mln
Napoli 68,5 mln

I nerazzurri volano soprattutto nel criterio delle presenze allo stadio, superata la Juve nella quota risultati sportivi
