Leicester City football club could make up to £150 million from their Premier League league win, analysts have said.

The East Midlands club completed one of the most remarkable stories in the history of English football by winning the Premier League title.

Leicester City won the league against odds of 5000-1 when Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur drew 2-2 at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

Repucom, the sports and entertainment analyst, said that the money would largely come from the Premier League’s “merit payment”, or one-off prize money awarded for their win.

The club could earn potentially over £90 million from winning the league, compared to the £71.6 million they received last season, thanks to the Premier League distribution of revenue and prize money for finishing top of the table, Repucom said.

They would get £33m just for appearing in the group stages of next season’s Champions League, with another £3m waiting in performance bonuses.

A third place finish in their group would guarantee a place in the Europa League and another £20m.

Higher match day and commercial revenues could bring another £10m-£15m.

The Italian manager, Claudio Ranieri’s Leicester City winning team cost £54.4m.
