Thus, of the more than 1,370 million raised, Real Madrid was the most earned by LaLiga EA Sports in the 2022-2023 season, with a total of 155.79 million euros (161.54 with the adjustment of 'LaLiga Impulso' ), for FC Barcelona's 155.10 (160.53). These two clubs and Atlético de Madrid, which earned 120.43 million (119.03), are the only ones that pass the 100 million barrier, with Sevilla FC, with more than 83 million, and Betis, with close to 71, completing the 'Top 5'.

“If we add Atlético de Madrid, the three have a revenue figure from the distribution of audiovisual rights above any club in the German Bundesliga, the Italian Serie A and the French Ligue 1,” LaLiga warned.

On the other hand, regarding LaLiga Hypermotion, the Second Division, the three clubs that have received the most money are Alavés and Levante, with just over 28 million, and Granada, with almost 24 million.

The organization chaired by Javier Tebas also stressed that income from the commercialization of audiovisual rights has grown by 19 percent, from €1,344M to €1,595M, without counting the Copa del Rey and without the effect of the 'Impulse Plan', since the 2016-2017 season compared to the Premier League, which has grown around 5 percent in the same period.
