TV broadcasting rights money (Mod: European leagues)

I have been searching on the web but I can't really find any info about this.

In Sweden each club in Elitserien receives 25 million SEK from broadcasting rights that the league has sold to Canal+. In HockeyAllsvenskan each club receives 400 000 SEK.

25 million SEK = €2,8 million = US$3,7 million
400 000 SEK = €45 000 = US$60 000

Does anyone know what the broadcasting rights generate for clubs in other leagues such as SM-liiga, DEL, NLA, KHL and NHL?

Finnish SM-liiga signed a five-year TV deal for 2008-2013 and the deal was estimated to be worth €60MM, €12MM a year.

Both, the Finnish SM-liiga and the Swedish Hockey League got new TV contracts this year.

SHL signed a 4-year deal(2014/15-2017/18) with C More/TV4 reportedly worth ~325M SEK(~49M USD) a year. idrottensaffarer.se

SM-liiga signed a 5-year deal(2013/14-2017/18) with Sanoma Media/Nelonen and according to Savon Sanomat newspaper every team will receive between 900k-1.1M Euros(1.1M-1.4M USD) of TV money a year. savonsanomat.fi

SHL is a 12-team league, while SM-liiga is a 14-team league. SM-liiga is also going to lose arguably its most popular team after next season when Jokerit are scheduled to leave for the KHL.

KHL signs tv-deals on behalf of all clubs, no KHL club has right to sign own deal. I think that the same scheme is in SHL/SM-Liiga??

Different is that KHL does not share tv-money with clubs, all tv-money goes to KHL HQ. Many reasons why KHL does it. KHL is going to share tv-revenues with clubs in near future. IMO clubs with bigger ratings get more money from tv-deals. We have to wait for details.

We have to divide KHL´s tv-money for two groups:

1) KHL TV is a broadcaster created by KHL (something like NHL Network), operates only in Russia if I know. KHL TV has 10 642 000 subscribers (June/July 2013)


2) TV deals outside Russia

KHL signed new 3-y deal (2013/14-15/16) with Chello Central Europe (SportTV) for regions of Slovakia, Czech rep, Hungary (??). SportTV will make signal of home games of Slovan Bratislava, Lev Praha, the broadcaster did it in 12/13 as well.

KHL signed tv-deal with Viasat Hockey Finland, brand new channel in Finland.

KHL has also tv deal with Eurosport Asia-Pacific

KHL has also tv deal with Viasat Baltic (Latvia etc)

I dont know if tv deals with NA broadcasters (RDS, ESPN etc) go on.

Sum of tv deals are unknown. Maybe there were some rumours in press, but nothing official. If I find something, I will write it here.

I haven't found any info on that, but you would think so. Losing a big market club that has a strong following around the nation and those popular Helsinki derby games, is obviously going to have a negative effect on viewership/subscriber figures.

Yeah, but I think that $3M is from the contract with a local broadcaster(FOX Sports Ohio?). The league also has massive national US and CAN TV deals and the money from those deals is equally distributed between teams. SHL and SM-liiga only have exclusive national TV deals.

columbas's ratings for hockey a nearly nothing and there is very little in way of a bidding war for them

The DEL signed a 4-Year-Contract with ServusTV in 2012. This pays each team around 250.000€ per season. And it is free tv.

Prior to that, the DEL had a contract with Sky (Pay-tv) where each team received 200.000€.

That is all? Only 250.000€/club/season?

I have copied your post to this thread, not to be offtopic here.

Yes thats all. Problem is, on TV usually there is football, football,...
No big money left to spend on other sports for the tv-stations.

But the DEL (and the fans) are happy with it because when Sky announced they were not going to extend their contract it was highly questionable if there will be another tv-station signing a deal anyway.

team budgets in the DEL are around 4million up to 8million, so 250k isnt that bad.

Yes, not bad, but for richest clubs it is bad news.... they want to compete within Europe (ET or so), they need money. If you want, we can continue in thread I posted.
