West Ham earn £85m for seventh place finish

money_in_footballWest Ham earnings from TV rights have topped £85m this season. The Hammers received an equal share of UK TV rights worth £21,968,793 which all twenty Premier League clubs get, next comes an equal share of Overseas TV worth £27,757,371 plus another equal share of £4,932,630 from the commercial  central pool.

The Hammers had 15 games broadcast live on UK TV earning them a further £13,162,740 in facility fees.  Finally, each club earns a merit payment based on their finishing position. The seventh place merit payment gets another £17,428,572.

Add that all up and the seventh place position earns the Hammers £85,250,106. We must now want to see if Manchester United win the FA Cup to keep our European dreams alive.

West Ham picked up £76,339,564 for finishing twelfth last season so it is a significant financial improvement of over £10m.

  1. More to the point how did we manage to lose to that Stoke team, we battered them for most of 90 minutes they have 3 shots on target and score twice… one goal would have been prevented if we had a proper defensive midfielder and the other if Collins was playing instead of Reid who was half asleep in the middle of defence in a position he is not suited too. That being said we can’t be accused of not giving 100% just very unlucky. If we miss out on Europe we should sue the FAPL for cr@p referees that have cost us 15 points and a 2nd place finish this season.

  2. Very nice,not to be sniffed at is it.

  3. Do you possess a calculator Sean? 😉

  4. Should get us a couple of good forwards that can put the ball in the net,
    And a good defender to play along side ogy
