The league is a corporation in which the member clubs act as shareholders, and generates €2.2 billion per year in domestic and international television rights.Clubs were apportioned central payment revenues of £2.4 billion in 2016–17, with a further £343 million in solidarity payments to English Football League (EFL) clubs.
