2 more games for TV....
Liverpool H 8pm Sky Monday 19th April
Mancscum H 2pm Sky Sunday 25th April
I just hope Sky are still paying Prem teams £1.1 millions a game!
Yeah and what a difference it is playing in the Prem with all that dosh for TV games.... I'm sure, but don't quote me, it was something as stupid as playing 2/3 games on tv in the Prem is the same finances from Sky as being on tv ALL season in the Championship!?
Your correct TC and also there is an award of circa £2.7 million to £3mllion per place you finish in the Prem. So right now we are in line for a £30 million bonus!
4th bottom team received approx £125 million from Sky/TV last season. Makes it easier for us to spend £100 million in the summer. With crowds likely to be back in full from the start of next season, LUFC could have a turnover in excess of £250 million compared with our turnover of approx £55 million when we won the Championship (covid knocked off about £5 million)
When you think of the money that was "lost" to LUFC in those 16 years out of the top flight just goes to show
a) how well we have done to compete with the other more establish PL teams this season
b) How long it will take to close the gap and break into the top 6 on a regular basis
I think your maths is pretty close BB, but the catch is that most of THIS season's revenue comes at the end of the season - we spent £100M effectively LAST season which means we're always 1 year in hock - we spent most of the end of year cash already
Not so sure Soopa as the Prem gives promoted clubs funds early so they can build. Either way, it does not matter when you receive the monies as you can always obtain finance for guaranteed funds.
We were lucky, when Covid hit our cost base was low compared to other Prem clubs (High for a Championship club though)
An increase in turnover/profit of probably £150 million this season (subject to Covid reductions) means we should have earned at least £90 million profit (after increased player wages) which more than helps pay the £100 million outlay spent last summer.
Cannot see AR or 49ers holding back so expect significant investment this year too.
Scousers just sold 10% of shares for £544million (Valuing them at £5.44 billion) so both parties know what it means to dine at the top table. No point in settling for ready meals/takeaways when you have the pulling power of the Famous White Shirt
I'm guessing BT Sport for Chelsea and Man City on SKY given those time slots.
