Prize for winning Premier League? £100 MILLION!
The Premier League are set to rake in an amazing £5 BILLION from television rights. The Guardian says revenue from domestic and global TV rights deals on course to top £5bn by the time the final overseas contracts are tied up next month.
On top of the blockbuster £3.018bn deal announced in June for domestic live rights with Sky and BT for the three seasons from 2013-14, and the £178m banked from the BBC for Match of the Day highlights, the Premier League is well on course to improve on the £1.4bn it brought in from overseas broadcasters under the current deal.
If the total revenue breaks through the £5bn barrier as expected, the amount that the title-winning club receives from 2013-14 is likely to top £100m for the first time.
