Ted Lasso earns more than 14 Premier League managers and is well worth it

What you need to know

  • Ted Lasso reportedly earns more than 14 Premier League managers.
  • At $1 million per episode, Ted Lasso star Jason Sudeikis earns around £8.7 million per year.
  • Manchester City's Pep Guardiola earns a reported £20 million per year.

You can't put a price on positivity.

The hit Apple TV+ show Ted Lasso captures imaginations and hearts with every episode, but how does the fictional titular character stack up in terms of annual pay when compared with real football managers? Turns out Ted Lasso does pretty well for himself, reportedly earning more than some big hitters like Manchester United's Ole Gunnar Solskjær and Arsenal's Mikel Arteta.

According to a new study by Casumo, Ted Lasso — or more accurately, Jason Sudeikis — earns a cool $1 million per episode. That equates to around £8.7 million per year and stacks up very favorably to the vast majority of current Premier League managers.

Check it out — and ignore the fact that some of these managers are no longer in charge of their respective teams!

Casumo analysed Jason Sudeikis's reported yearly earnings for his role as Ted Lasso compared with the reported earnings of high profile premier league managers to see where he lands on the salary table.

Personally, I won't get out of bed for less than £10 million per year — it looks like I won't be managing many Premier League teams any time soon!

Ted Lasso has been a runaway hit for Apple TV+ and at $1 million per episode, it's likely everyone involved would say that Sudeikis is worth every single penny he earns. And it would be difficult to argue with them given the popularity of the show with both viewers and awards panels.
