What Promotion Is Worth To Newcastle Financially


It’s always difficult to know just how much promotion means to Newcastle financially over the next year, because the amount we get from the Premier League next May depends on how well we do in the Premier League and how many Newcastle games are televised live – amongst other things.

But with Rafa Benitez as the manager, we’ve got to think Newcastle will be quite a draw on TV next term.

The Deloitte Sports Business Group has estimated that  Premier League promotion for Championship clubs with no parachute payments is worth at least £170M.

The triumvirate running Newcastle – Ashley, Benitez and Charnley

That would cover Brighton’s case, but Newcastle will get a parachute payment from the PL of £40M this month, so we assume that means we will make at least an extra £130M in the next financial year starting July 1st and that seems about right.

Of the four playoff teams in the Championship only Fulham had a parachute payment this season (about £10M), so the other clubs get just £7.1M from the league, whatever position they finish in the Championship.

The clubs also get about £100K for each live televised game.

And that’s very small potatoes compared to the money in the Premier League where each televised game brings in £1M to the clubs.

We’ll be watching the playoffs for the Championship and Fulham have to be the favorites based on current form, but you never know what may happen in these games.

And the recent huge increase in revenues for Premier League clubs promoted to the Premier League is the reason  the Championship play-off final is now thought to be the most lucrative game in world football.

It means £170M for the winner if it’s not Fulham and around £160M if the Cottagers win.

Quite some pressure on the manager and the players in that game, which takes place on Monday, May 29th – we’ll be watching.

It also doesn’t give the club that get the third promotion spot much time to prepare for the upcoming season in England’s top flight.

We’re just pleased we are back in the Premier League and receive some publicity in the national press again.

We will not be completely ignored next season as we were this season – well at least until we were promoted on April 24th when we beat Preston 4-1 and we came back to the land of the living.

    Early morning start to the fighting

    Hoots did well with us but had an easier job than Rafa the championship wasn’t as strong he kept the core of his squad and he had very ex0erienced leaders who wouldn’t shy away from being a dirty cheating b**tard

    catchy

    I agree, we will have a target in the prem, and I am not knocking the team, just stating a simple fact that we started slow in a lot of game, and that the prem teams are less forgiving, even in games we won last season, this blog was in meltdown because of our lacklustre start to many games, my only point is we cannot afford to do that back in the big league.

    Rafa has brought back team spirit, cohesion, and actual game plans, but we still put in some poor displays, especially in the first half of games.

    But like I said in my original post, it’s only a concern, whilst I don’t think for one minute we will be in a relegation scrap next season, or challenging the top six, we will be maybe top half mid table, but we will need to be more involved with the ball from the start, pushing onto team rather than sitting back.

    Anyway I have to go out now but nice debating with you all.

    Achraf Lazar wants a move to Italy or Spain.

    I think Rafa may use him as a makeweight in a player plus cash deal for one of his Southern European targets.

    Knowing the way Benitez works , I wouldn’t be surprised if that wasn’t at the back of his mind when he signed him from Palermo at what semed then a bargain price of £3m.

    I notice carl (Ian) emerged from his burrow to fan the flames. He was caught red handed again the other day but you have to hand it to him for his tenacity. If not his short term memory issues.

    Kevin Nolan was not only player of the Championship season but a captain to compare with the best. Rafa has already hinted that he will be looking to appoint a new captain. Also the talk suggests Graham C could be put out to pasture.

    Carr was not involved in any of signings last summer. Also at time of recent HMRC visit it was Carr who described his role down to providing a report on a player and little else. He’s had little contact with Ed’s triumvirate and has clearly been marginalised.
    Rafa has a wealth of coaching contacts many of which he established during his Liverpool time.

    I think Carr is a very good scout, who unfortunately had too much say in our former recruitment policy.

    carl came back on yesterday with a plaguarised (twice) post from Ian Toon, doesn’t like the fact he’s been sussed for the umpteenth time so comes on today full of venom. No doubt we’ll have Jack Root coming on later to lick some true fans hoop.

    Before I go. Who’s likely to be our first signing in your opinion?
    It’s gone quiet on Shawcross but I thought him a likely acquisition and captain.
