Burnley: Clarets set for £3.5m TV money boost

Burnley: Clarets set for £3.5m TV money boost -Burnley News

Burnley are reportedly set to earn a £3.5m windfall after a number of their Championship fixtures have been televised on Sky Sports.

The Lowdown: Burnley matches on TV

The Clarets have made a strong start to life back in the Championship after their relegation from the Premier League, sitting fifth in the table currently.

Vincent Kompany’s side are one of the more high-profile teams in the division, so it hasn’t been surprising to see them being televised live a number of times in the opening month or so of the season.

Sky Sports have already broadcast three of their matches live, with the visit to Preston on Tuesday being their next televised fixture and their postponed clash against Norwich from last Friday also originally selected for TV coverage (Lancs Live).

It looks to have been hugely beneficial to Burnley, following an emerging report.

The Latest: TV money coming Burnley’s way

According to Lancs Live, the Clarets are set to receive ‘in excess of £3.5m’ in TV money, having been shown live on three occasions prior to Tuesday’s clash at Deepdate.

That would see them already recoup virtually all of the £3.6m that they paid to sign Anass Zaroury late in the summer transfer window.

A minimum of four matches are required to be shown for each Championship club this season, and it looks as though Burnley could comfortably exceed that amount by the campaign’s conclusion.

The Verdict: Money for signings?

This is a clear financial boost for Burnley as they look to make up for the disappointment of relegation last season – something which will have heavily impacted them financially, given the loss of Premier League riches.

To have already been shown on TV so frequently could bode well for the Clarets for the rest of the campaign, and if Kompany’s men continue their promotion push, it will surely increase the likelihood of even more of their matches being televised moving forward.

Will Burnley get promoted this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

There is a limit, of course, and it would be unfair for some clubs to be shown far more than others, but that is not Burnley’s problem. They are simply the beneficiaries of the decision taken by broadcasters such as Sky Sports.
