Barcelona’s investment last summer has seen the Catalan club return to the top of Spanish football again after emerging as La Liga champions this season.

Club president, Joan Laporta had defied the club’s financial struggles to land some of the best football talents at Camp Nou - and it has paid off.

Barcelona had allocated £172 million for their summer spending, which sponsored the arrival of Robert Lewandowski, Jules Kounde, and Raphinha, Daily Mail reports.

Andreas Christensen, Marcos Alonso and Frank Kessie also joined the Catalans as free agents as Xavi built one of the most formidable squads in Europe, ready to challenge for all championships.

As the 2022/23 season ends, Barcelona fans will take solace in their team scooping the biggest trophy in Spain, although they missed out on major European silverware.

How much will Barcelona get?
In Spain, no cash prize is awarded to the league champion, but they are rewarded with increased television revenue, AS Sport reports.

Barcelona will earn approximately €91.6 mil from TV rights for winning La Liga, compared to the €85.07 mil earned by the second-place team.

Television revenue is divided equally among all La Liga clubs, with half (€35.7 mil) distributed equally and the remaining 50% distributed based on a combination of sports results achieved over the previous five seasons and each team's social impact.

The team’s final position in the Spanish league influences this distribution, with the champion earning 17%, the second-place team getting 15%, and so on.

Barcelona will also earn approximately €9.6 mil from UEFA for winning La Liga this season, which is €2.5 mil more than the second-place team will earn.
