La Liga distributed a total €1.42 billion (US$1.58 billion) between its top flight clubs, with champions Barcelona receiving more than €12 million than they did last season, earning €166.5 million (US$185 million).

Real Madrid, meanwhile, were given a share of €155.3 million (US$172.5 million), with cross-city rivals Atletico Madrid receiving €119.2 million (US$132.4 million).
