Massive Premier League Money For New TV Deal

Alan Pardew had mentioned that the Premier League money will increase quite a bit earlier this season, and for the next three-year deal – from 2016-2019 – the money will be a lot more than it is for this current three-year deal that ends in 2016.

Mike Ashley – seems happy enough with new potential TV deal

The news is that in six months’ time, the Premier League will announce another record-breaking TV deal, and the Mirror is reporting today that TV companies could send the value of the next three year deal past £4B.

The current TV deal which started last year, is only slightly more than £3B (£3.02B).

The bidding is likely to start early next year, when the Premier League will put different packages up for sale and bids will be made for these packages.

The winners – and the amount of the deal – is expected to be announced by March or April of next year, and the deal will start with the 2016-2017 season.

The battle is again expected to be between Sky Sports and BT Sport, and if the overall figure does reach £4B it would mean each club could get more than £100M a season. ESPN is also expected to bid for packages.

So clubs who have owners who think football is only about money, will be heavily motivated to stay in the Premier League.

That’s why we think Mike Ashley – for once – will be ready to spend heavily if Newcastle are still in relegation trouble in January, and even if we are not – given what happened in the second half of last season – he may still want to strengthen the squad in any case.

Newcastle got about £79M last May for finishing in 10th place in the PL, so a rough estimate is that if the overall deal rises by 33%  (from £3B to £4B) Newcastle would get around £105M with the new deal, for finishing around 10th place – that’s a rough estimate.

And the winner of the Premier League would get around £133M.

And that could even mean Newcastle may be able to afford a £10M player – if Ashley is in a good mood at the time and all the stars are aligned. 😀

The Premier League’s policy is that no one buyer can have all the packages of matches, and in the current agreement there are seven different  packages of games – BT Sport have two and Sky have five.

Sky Sports have 116 matches and BT Sport have 38 matches per season.

Wonder how many Premier League managers will be fired this season, if it looks like their clubs could get relegated.

And with these potential new financial figures for the Premier League, forget about Mike Ashley selling Newcastle United to buy Rangers FC.

It’s not going to happen.

That’s good news for Rangers fans.

    The TV money increases, yet that is simply more money NOT being invested into the playing staff or suitable management and coaching staff.

    more reason for him to remain at our club, rangers fans act like serious supporter, they target ashley abuse his shops. it’s the whole of the club they love the most not entertainment or quality footballers.

    st james park or SD advertising either is good enough.

    spend money or make profits well any is good.

    more important new owner or new manager we think new manager.

    ashley can take as much money away from NUFC as he likes.
    ashley can have as many SD adverts as he likes at st james park
    ashley can sell as many players as he likes at NUFC.
    ashley can basically do what ever he likes in NUFc fans eyes because these fans only want lots of goals they don’t even have to win games 5-4 loss is good.

    RANGERS fans you show these toon fans how it’s done maybe then those clowns at the stadium will learn how to make ashley more desperate to sell us.

    Yet another price hike for the sports tv subscribers then..

    When will this bollox end ?

    Daylight robbery having to foot the bill for these massively inflated tv deals.

    Can only hope Bt sports goes bust just like the last few companies to throw their weight around.

    Last thread
    Anonymity isn’t an issue at all for me.

    I was simply pointing out the difficultly in trying to do what Rangers fans did by only having the Net to reach their supporters. My understanding perhaps naively was that they coordinated their action through personal contact\word of mouth and didn’t risk SD learning of their intentions via public media.

    Last thread – simply differentiating between the 2 differrent approaches.

    NUFC groups drawn out attacks not always supported by fans in the ground (guerilla warfare) and Rangers fans taking direct action against SD.

    Just thought less grief and chance of fans falling out with each other by Rangers fans short sharp shock.

    Don’t you see a difference of approach. Simply talking tactics not b***”””

    Not sure from the fire I seem to have drawn that there may be some disgruntlement becoming apparent that Rangers fans have stolen the thunder of the various NUFC groups.

    On that note Whumpie a couple of threads ago made a very valid point on effectiveness.

    I would add that Rangers have been through a different sort of hell to us in recent years and may have organised differently and also learnt from NUFC groups battles so could have a different approach.

    For those who don’t use Newsnow feed there are a couple of links to Scottish Herald re Rangers fans SD protest. Ed will get to them in due course perhaps but he has been strangely silent on this news?

    Nothing really new on their asides on NUFC and Ashley. The arguments have been rehearsed on here for years.

    Interesting that they contacted NUFC London fan base for a quote. No issue with that other than wouldn’t you expect them to get quotes from NUFC protest group spokesman. Anonymity has it’s drawbacks.

    Ashley will , if he follows his usual pattern , as soon as it is viable , float the club on the stock market …at one time there was a chance the fans would get first refusal but the big mouths have probably knackered that idea

    I hate to say this but we are going to get relegated this season… Only if we get a new manager and spend over £100 million we will stay in the Premier league… This side is just NOT good enough .. Sammy Amiobi etc wont keep us up.. Remy Cabella is not good enough. we needed HBA & Shola to give us some steel … Who have we Oh I forgot we have Obertan !!!!!!

    Great, lets ship some more potentially good players from france from 10 grand a week to 20 and hope they come good so we can sell them for profit.

    The future is bright.

    What a waste. Aslong as SD is doing well.

    How will this affect the Toon? We’ll probably be in the Championship if P45due is still in charge.
