Newcastle Premier League Payment For Last Season Just £3M Less Than Previous Season

The Premier league payments to each club have been revealed by the Premier League.

The number one team is Liverpool who finished 2nd in the league but had total revenues from the PL of £152.43 with Champions Manchester City second getting £150.99.

The League’s central revenues are distributed to clubs in the following manner:

  1. The UK broadcast revenues: 50% equally shared; 25% shared based on how often a club’s matches are transmitted in the UK (“Facility Fees”), and 25% shared based on where a club finishes in the league table (“Merit Payments”)
  2. Central Commercial revenues: Equally divided by clubs
  3. International broadcasting revenues: Equally shared by clubs

Manager Rafa Benitez – the man mainly responsible for very decent revenue from PL

These payments are listed in the table below.

This is the breakdown for Newcastle for last season, and we are around about £3M short of a year ago.

The table is in order of the points won last season – not the money paid out by the Premier League.

If it was the money paid out we’d be in 11th place – not too bad.

As a comparison here’s last year’s figures.

Even though we were in 13th place last season compared to 10th place the previous season we were quite popular on TV and had 19 matches televised.

It’s another good financial return by the club from the PL, but we can do a lot better next season.

Comments welcome.

    I think you need to add the word million after the amounts quoted otherwise some ( no names mentioned ) will believe that the Premier League are being less than generous !

    Is it possible that Rafa has asked for things which take time to sort out? Full access to the accounts with plans drawn up on future spending priorities. Drawing up a short list for a director of football so Barnes doesn’t need to be anywhere near the club again.

    That’s two examples of the top of my head. Yes they’re both unlikely but just trying to illustrate why things may be taking a while.

    I can see Rafa going to be honest, he would have agreed to sign ages ago, they are both stubborn for different reasons.

    Let’s hope someone else doesn’t repost with that load of bollix spouted on the previous thread.

    They’re as bad as the wums that have plagued this place for years.

    Very sad indeed and at the expense of supposed fellow toon fans makes it all the more unbelievable.

    Next seasons kit – some clubs and designers seem to have got their act together.

    Wonder if the sweatshop that is Shirebrook have anything decent to offer NUFC ?

    And I thought Betting Company logos on shirts was being banned . So what happens to our lot 888 ?

    According to SKY, the Chumpionship playoff game is worth £170m but according to the list published by Ed Liverpool only picked up £152m.
    Are SKY expecting who ever comes up to win the Premiership at the first attempt?

    You get three years of parachute payments even if you get relegated after one season

    Do they not combine what it’s worth to both clubs to make it sound better.

    It’s about 130M in the PL and 50M in the Champo, give or take a few gate receipts etc and they probably reckon about 85M each more if you get promoted.

    A very interesting theory from Dean Wilkins (The Mag)


    It all makes sense just hope it’s for real…….

    Well, I am an eternal optimist!

    Interesting to note that a lot of opposition fans think we’re deluded for wanting more than just perennial relegation battles ? However if they bothered their R’s to check out the “Facility fee” table we’re in the top 7 ?

    Seventh most watched team in the PL and we’re starved of cash ? If only Fatman hadnt trousered that £33m from last season’s profits ?

    “Could the only thing that makes sense, be Mike Ashley meeting Rafa Benitez last week to update him on a sale of Newcastle United going through and to keep the manager onboard, with him (Rafa) being a crucial asset in the sale.”

    This signing up Rafa is a fcuking joke, once again making Newcastle United the laughing stock of the league.

    The only issue I have is, which one is not budging a little to make this work out.
