On Premier League TV Money

On Premier League TV Money”

Cape Town - Premier League clubs are set to discuss a proposal that would change the way money from overseas broadcasting deals is distributed.

"Clubs agreed to adjourn to allow further discussion", a statement read.

The new proposal from Scudamore would see 35% of the global TV revenue allocated according to a club's final position in the table, with the remaining 65 percent distributed equally between all clubs. It is understood that this proposal was not put to a vote before the adjournment.

The decision indicates that the division's smaller clubs remain unconvinced by the proposals, which are the result of lobbying from the big six - Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham - for a larger share of central revenues. The "Big Six" say they are the big attraction for fans around the world.

It had become clear during the meeting that the plan was significantly short of gaining the support of the 14 clubs needed for it to be passed.

These positions are not easily retractable and both sides can claim to have some form of leverage in negotiations.

Bournemouth have endured a very hard start to their season so far but Howe is remaining positive and has backed the younger players in his squad to prove their worth in order to help the Cherries make their way up the Premier League table soon. For the rest of the league they can bargain safe in the knowledge that any adjustment to the rules would require a two-thirds majority vote.

United, City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham have always been credited with a serious interest in overhauling the current distribution system of overseas TV revenue, arguing that they are the driving force of the Premier League's appeal outside the UK.

A compromise on foreign income still looks likely, and another meeting of the clubs is expected in the next month.
