Liverpool top the league for most-televised football team in the Premier League last season
Manchester City may have pipped Liverpool to the Premier League title in 2018/19 on the final day showdown, but it was Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool that topped the charts for the most televised team in the UK last season.
Despite Manchester United's lacklustre 6th place finish with no realistic chance of securing a Champions League spot early on in the season, they were the 2nd most-televised team with 27 of their matches broadcast live, ahead of Spurs (26), Chelsea and Arsenal who were shown 25 times.
Outside of the top 6 teams, Newcastle were the most televised, despite only finishing 13th last season with 19 (half of their matches) being broadcast live. However, fans who follow Wolves, Watford and Bournemouth may feel aggrieved as their teams only managed to get in front of the cameras 15, 10 and 8 times respectively despite their actual league position being much higher, subsequently taking less TV income.
Despite being relegated, Fulham managed to get on the TV 13 times, which was more nearly half the teams in the Premier League last season. It seems the writing was on the wall for Huddersfield Town who were never given fair coverage on TV, with just 8 matches being shown throughout the year and the minimum share of £12.3 million in TV income.
With a record 200 Premier League games being broadcast live on TV in the UK for the 2019/20 season, and the introduction of Amazon Prime who will live stream 20 matches in December splitting up the duopoly between Sky and BT, it will no doubt result in more exposure for the teams at the top of the ladder.
