Newcastle leave Bayern Munich trailing in TV money chase
Remarkable statistics show that Newcastle receive more than two and a half times the domestic TV money Bayern Munich bank.
In the table below produced by Spanish media organisation AS, they have published the figures (in Euros) that each of the clubs in the five major European leagues make from their domestic TV money.
Of course what it shows most of all is the dominance of the Premier League in terms of attracting money from the global TV audience.
An announcement is due at 5pm today, as to how much the Premier League have sold their TV rights for this time (2016 onwards in a three year deal), though the figure for income generated from the rest of the world will come at a later date.
In the meantime , it is remarkable that Newcastle make more from their league matches being shown on TV than every other club in Europe apart from Real Madrid and Barcelona, plus the seven English clubs who banked more than Newcastle last season.
Shortly though, Barcelona and Real Madrid are going to have the gap between what they get and the rest of the Spanish clubs brought closer together, which when combined with the new Premier League deal, could well see Newcastle banking more domestic TV money than Real Madrid and Barca as well in a few years time.
