Premier League clubs receive less money from stadium rights
Premier League clubs don’t receive tens of millions of pounds from the sale of rights to rename their stadiums.
In the barely completed season, only 30 percent of the top English division clubs have been playing at the stadiums having the sponsor’s brand name.
These six clubs out of 20 were Bournemouth, Arsenal, Brighton, Huddersfield, Leicester and Manchester City.
For example, in the National Football League (NFL), this figure is more than 80 percent, reports the BBC, citing a study of Duff & Phelps.
The total potential of sponsorship contracts of this kind in the Premier League is £142 million. Also, that potential increased by 5 percent from last the year (from £135.5 million). Manchester United are underpaid more than others in this respect. The club from Old Trafford could earn £26.75 million per season.
