Spfl Cash Distribution

Recommended Posts

There has been various discussions of late as to the split of monies between the various SPFL divisions and whilst it is true that there is a reducing scale down from team 1 to team 42 this doesn't show the true imbalance between the divisions. The bottom of the Premiership earns more than the Championship winner and so on down but it is the scale of the difference that is the true scandal and will stand in the way of any possible reconstruction. Celtic get 13.4% of the total pot for winning the Premier down to Hearts getting 4.5% for finishing bottom. Utd get 2.25% for 'winning' the Championship down to Partick getting 0.7% for bottom. The League 1 top 0.5%/bottom 0.28%, League 2 top 0.27%/bottom 0.18%. This is clearly skewed way too far towards the top division and even a small adjustment would mean a great deal for the lower league clubs. As it stands the Premier League as a whole gets over 82% of the pot, Championship 12%, League 1 3.5%, League 2 2.2%. Even if the top league reduced their share to 70% the effect on the lower leagues would be substantial. Lets hope that better distribution was one of JN's talking points and that there is some measure of agreement to go down this line. Personally I think when you see these figures in comparison down the leagues there will be a lot of talk and eventually we will get either the status quo or at best a one season only 14 team top division to save Hearts. If this is the case (14 teams one season only) there will have to be a concrete proposal to promote the Championship winner and have at least one play off spot. This would leave the top 10 in the Premier safe just as now with 3 down and one in a play off. Don't think they would go for that though!!

I wonder if the club(s) who are taking legal action thus holding up the distribution of funds will get the same amount of hate directed at them as we did 

Not until someone in the SPFL Board names them publicly, by mistake.....
