kdb will find the CBA section that discusses if a threshold is surpassed that it goes to revenue transfer program firstly, but I think that's above the $200MM mark here.
There's no threshold on the amount of centrally generated league revenue that would trigger part of it going to revenue sharing. The key figures are:
- The minimum revenue sharing pool is set each year at 4.5% of league HRR.
- Up to 25% of that pool will be sourced from "excess centrally generated league revenues, if any". So the target would be 1.125% of HRR.
For league revenues projected around $2.8B or so with the new TV deal that's around $31m per year of the TV deal that would go into the revenue sharing pool.
