REVEALED: Brentford due stunning £160M if promotion won

Brentford will earn a massive £160m should they win promotion to the Premier League this week.

The London Evening Standard reports the Bees will bank a massive £160million across three years in additional revenue if they pip Fulham to promotion in Tuesday's Championship play-off final, according to Deloitte.

It remains the most expensive prize in world football, with the riches of Premier League television money afforded to top-flight clubs.

Deloitte says that if the Bees were to survive their first season the additional revenue would rise to £265m over five years, with Championship winners Leeds benefiting to the same tune as Brentford.

Fulham would receive around £135m over three years if they beat their fellow west Londoners, a reduced amount because they are currently in receipt of parachute payments after their relegation to the Championship in 2019.
