The Premier League, its clubs and its players paid a whopping £2.4 billion in tax in the 2013-14 season.

That's according to figures released in the Premier League's latest annual season review.

An Ernst & Young (EY) economic impact assessment of the league found that it contributed £2.4bn to the country's coffers in the 2013-14 season.

Over a third of that, £891m, was tax paid directly by the players.

EY calculated that the £2.4bn tax contribution could pay the salaries of around 93,000 police constables, which is over 90% of all of the constables in England and Wales.

The impact assessment also found that the Premier League supports 103,354 full time equivalent jobs in the UK.

That's comprised of over 6,000 people directly, for example the players, over 65,000 indirectly, such as those employed by companies that supply the league, and over 31,000 through induced employment which are jobs supported through the spending of those employed directly and indirectly by the Premier League, such as shop retailers.

It is also estimated that the league adds £3.4bn to the UK's economy.

Commenting on the report, EY's Chief Economist Mark Gregory said, "The success of the Premier League, which is grounded in the quality of the football competition, has created a 'cycle of growth'. This should help ensure that the significant contribution to the UK economy and society will continue to increase in years ahead."
