What difference does an extra €300 million make to the Serie A sides?
The answer? A ton. In addition to the added money in the pot, the way money is distributed will also be restructured.
There is a very large gap between first and second place in TV revenues in Italy, currently Juventus lead the way with €107 million while AC Milan earn only €79 million.
With the new deal and format, Juventus would theoretically only earn €91 million, while the new second biggest team, Inter, would earn €87 million.
The top teams would earn well over €80 million whereas before this was not the case. But the real difference comes for the smaller clubs. A team like Genoa could see a boost of over €20 million per season, which would definitely help out the club’s accounts.
Mid-table Serie A clubs would receive in general a massive boost to their TV revenues from the new deals. Investment time?
