Edit: PL teams get £1.1m a match so the disparity is still glaringly different as you note.
Aye. You're still correct. That was the distribution of income. Every EPL club actually receives £12.3million for being involved in 10 TV matches with an additional £1.1million for each game on top of that. Which I guess means Sky have to show clubs 10x, otherwise Huddersfield probably wouldn't have been on at all.
Championship clubs recieve £100K for every home game, £120K for a Sunday game and £140K for Thursday games. Away clubs receive 10k. So we actually end up with less than 1.5M for our 24 games on Sky.
To finish the comparison we'll receive a total of about 8M for this season compared to Huddersfields 96M, but I suppose the parachute payments are even more unfair considering how much money teams that finished below us in the league system will receive, and all to avoid a repeat of our fall from grace when relegation meant certain bankruptcy..
