Premier League 'Big Six' want more TV rights money

Premier League 'Big Six' want more TV rights money”

The Premier League's six wealthiest clubs - Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham - are facing significant opposition over a controversial proposal to revamp how overseas TV revenue is distributed throughout the division, according to reports.

They want the Premier League to change the way that the money from overseas TV deals is distributed. The so-called "big six" clubs argue that as the global revenue rises, as it is expected to again when the new 2019-22 deals start to be negotiated later this year, they should receive a larger share because they are the prime clubs which worldwide viewers tune in to watch.

The six clubs proposing the deal would no doubt argue that it is fair because any club could finish at the top end and get the bigger shares BUT the reality of course is that these clubs know they are all but guaranteed to be within the group who will grab the most money.

Now the Premier League's popularity has made it prime content for pay-TV around the world, delivering approximately £3 billion (€3.4bn) to the 20 clubs in the 2016-19 round of deals. That global bonanza added to the £5.1bn from the competition between Sky and BT for British football subscribers, plus other highlights deals, makes a total of £8.4bn in the current three-year cycle.

Discussions are time-sensitive as the Premier League is set to start the tender process for TV rights for 2019-22 in the next few months. If the proposal does not attract the required support to pass, Scudamore and the big six clubs will be forced to explore alternative plans in search of a compromise.
