Big Money For Newcastle United In The Future


We reported in mid-June how the Premier League had cut a  deal for just over £3B with Sky Sports and BT,  for the domestic rights of  televising Premier League games live, for three years starting in 2013, and how that was a cool 70% increase over the previous three year deal.

Mike Ashley – it’s small wonder the owner is giving the thumbs up

And since each Premier League club currently gets around £800K for each position in the Premier League, with the Champions getting 20 times £800K, Newcastle being in 5th place last season would have received 16 times £800K, which is around £12.8M, for their high position in the league table.

It’s a reasonable assumption that in the season after next, that amount will increase by around 70%, and each PL club would then get around £1.36M per position in the league table, and Newcastle would get £21.76M if they finished in 5th position, although we hope to finish even higher than that. 😀

And yesterday, the English Premier League were celebrating another big cash boost, after they agreed a £120M deal with Barclays Bank for their continuing sponsorship.

The renewal of the Premier League sponsorship will run for three seasons from the 2013-2014 season, and that figure is an increase of almost 50% from the current £82M agreement.

The deal was struck before Barclay’s Bank were fined almost half a billion pounds, for their part in the ridiculous Libor interest rate manipulation scandal, with more big banks soon to be implicated – when will they ever learn?

Certainly the Premier League is the most popular league around the world for any sport, and in May the Premier League even got an increase of 5% from the BBC for the Match of the Day highlights, in a deal worth £180M.

The point is,  that the clubs that do manage to stay in the Premier League and do well, will get massive amounts of money in the future, and since Mike Ashley’s goal seems to be to invest any profits right back into the club, Newcastle will become a richer and richer club over the next few years.

That’s the Newcastle’s plan, and it’s even more ambitious these days with Newcastle threatening to challenge the big boys at the top of the league.

And success will not only bring in big big money to the Tyneside club, but the global brand of Newcastle United will become a lot better known around the world, than it is today.

As we said yesterday – things are starting to look good at Newcastle-  and the Magpies seem to be coming good again at just the right time.

    Morning people. Shattered after the fights last night. Kahn needs to learn how to take a punch.

    The extra income if used like we are doing at the moment should put us in a very good possition indeed.

    As long as the faces upstairs stay the same for a while sensible running and continuity is still needed

    As income goes up so does prices/wages/egos will obviously help out having extra dosh but tbf we wont pay more than we think a player is worth regardless of money available

    All that will happen is the extra money will go straight in to the players pockets. I reckon in the next 2 years city will pay someone 500k per week. It makes me sick.
    I have no faith in the fair play rules as there seem to be such easy loopholes. Something seriously has to be done to keep the money in the clubs and not the players bank accounts. The countrys’ economy is down 1% and the premier league is increasing by 70%.
    It’s a joke!!

    UFC has too much pinning and holding. I’m sure it does need great strength but i don’t really want to see sweaty men wrapping their legs round each other on the floor.

    But back the the article that Ed has spent time pulling together. This is massive for the club Ed, is we can maintain consistency in and around top 6 for the next 2-3 years then I think we can cement our place as a top team with the money available for player.

    On top of that, we’re breaking even which very few clubs do and this season we’ve managed to offload a big salary in Smith who wasn’t even getting on the bench.

    With a quality first 11, a financially stable position, a sound wage structure across the squad and tough bargaining in the transfer window the future looks bright indeed. I think in 2 more seasons we will have strength and quality of depth too and will become serious CL challengers.

    Agree that money will just end up being spent on players wages. I’ve not got any clever answer or solution to the problem but I do think it’s something that needs to be looked at.

    I think the “eternal pessimists” that visit this site may well find that the fair play rules may have more teeth than they are making out, the rules are being phased in to allow the overspenders to get things into line ahead of a ban.

    The number of posters that have come on here and banged on about no way will they ban manure, man shitty, barca real, and now psg because the sponsors would not allow it I think live in a particularly weird world of “everyone thinks just like me”, and just because they would stop watching if their favourite team was out then everybody else will do the same.

    It will only take one club to be restricted/censored for contravening the finance rules, and all of a sudden all the other over spenders will run like f**k to their accountants screaming sort this out.

    Football will be watched globally and the CL will be watched no matter who gets banned, the only way I can see the CL suffering from sponsors and viewers backing off is if all the big spenders were to be banned all at the same time and I doubt that will ever happen, the one or two most extreme will be made an example of and the rest will fall into line.

    Even if bans were to happen it would only be for one maybe two seasons then all would be back to normal.

    Then you will see some of that money staying in the clubs and the clubs slowly moving away from financial ruin.

    As for the breakaway supper league do you really think that the world would want watch the same hand full of teams play one another week in week out in a league that has no promotion and no relegation I for one doubt that.

    The problem here though is that although we would cash i non the new TV rights deal, so would every other club around us. It would strengthen our position in relation to other teams on the Continent but it wouldn’t give us any real advantage against other English teams challenging for the same players in the transfer market. Saying that though, extra money is always a good thing.
