Premiership's relegated trio to receive £11M in parachute payments

The three teams relegated from the Premier League will receive parachute payments during the next two seasons.

But the top flight and Championship gap gets bigger. Last season, each relegated club was paid £7.5million, estimated at more than £11m this time, calculates The Mirror.

However, TV cash is the key. On average, each Prem team got £40m from TV this term - the Big Four more than £50m.

Yet each Championship side received less than £1m through TV revenue, rising to about £2m including the ladder payments.

Over the past two years, the difference between the Championship and the bottom Premier League side has risen from £19m to £28m.

Overall, the Premier League's total of £900m a season dwarfs the Football League's £33m per year.

And Prem relegation is estimated to cost a club between £25m and £30m in revenue this season.
