We earned 94m from TV money

I'm pretty sure every PL club have an equal set quota at the beginning of the season... but of course if you're involved in a title race or relegation battle then your club is likely to be moved at a later date which obviously gives you more revenue. If Liverpool were in their usual Europa league race then they wouldn't have had that much income from TV revenue... not sure it's down to the attractiveness of the football... might be wrong.

This year it seemed like we were shown a hell of a lot more than we normally are, probably because of the Jose factor. We were on nearly every week at one stage for a couple of months.

The likes of Bolton under Megson were very rarely on TV, because they were so sh*te and played horrific football.

Fanbase plays a huge role. Advertisers are gonna pay broadcasters more cash for us to watch their sh*tty ads, and the more people watching those sh*tty ads, the more money they can make.

We have Sentanta Ireland in the house on our Sky F5 box (who show one 3pm game every saturday). Man Utd are on nearly every single week without fail. The only time they are not shown is when they have a late kick off or Sunday game.

Looking at the full table, we didn't earn that much less than Liverpool, or Man City. Considering the Liverpool revival, and that Man City were realistically favourites from the beginning of the season, I'm actually surprised that there wasn't a greater differential between ourselves and the top two.

 

Our income also increased by more than any other club barring Liverpool, which again can be put down to their unexpected title challenge.

 

The biggest surprise is perhaps that we earned more than Man U, who despite their lowly position, are still a massive club, with fanbase to match.

Those are insane numbers, all the way down the table . I read somewhere that Cardiff got more for finishing 20th in the EPL than Bayern did for finishing first in the German league.

be interesting to see what happens as more and more people start to watch live streams and cancel sky sports ......

 

... Sky have been very clever by doing deals with all the clubs to put all the TV cables in required for broadcasting and owning the camera points in grounds . They don't care who shows the games in the UK as they will have to pay Skyto use the cables to broadcast the match .......

Liverpool were only shown three times more than us with live games and one of those was final day when we were out of title race so nothing to do with style of play etc...plus gaps in total earnings is also cos you get paid for league position, which is the main reason why we're a lot further ahead than utd even though they were shown the same amount of times live

Cardiff also earned more this year than United got last year when winning the title! huge money in the prem, surely the money in our league should mean english clubs are able to compete in europe more easily than our rivals where FFP is concerned

Was just about to post that point. Ridiculous situation.

Combined with the Champions League money (anyone got any idea how much?) We have a serious wad of cash coming in. Hopefully it will be put to good use. Might be a chance for us to rise in the revenue rankings globally as well, though I think most around us were EPL anyway.

Adding in on the EPL funds, the Champions League money is also massive, its like 30 million just for the group stage I believe?

Doubt it's 30 million.

It went up to £15 million a few years ago while that depended on results.

A run to the latter stages like we had would be around £30 million

I'm sure I've heard in the past that its £30m for the group stages alone. The Mancs were said in the media to be £30m down already for next season due to no CL. That's probably based on guaranteed income I.e. the group stages, although with their draws they should have made the semis year in year out.
