Tv deal for championship

Some rumors before the season i  seem to remember with premier sports or someone? 

How much do championship clubs get now from sky money?

If year 1 was £600k year 2 £800k then year 3 £1.2 we wouldn’t be begging for money and would surely help with sponsorship deals. 
This could then really help with ticket prices and allow for all clubs to admit all U16’s in for free. 

just an idea

I think the deal proposed by Premier Sports has been rejected by the majority of the Clubs,They wanted to show every game live which the clubs rightly thought it would severely affect attendances.

You're in dreamland with those figures unfortunately. The Champs TV deal in the past barely covered the cost of production.

@jdgsport well that comes down to negotiating and I don’t think the RFL care about a tv deal for championship. Maybe the clubs could elect a representative. I’m sure one game a week on a Sunday at 5pm would work. Think of the sponsorship deals it would generate

I've thought about it, and the answer would be about £100 per team per match...

On what planet do you think an (Unfortunately) minority sport in the 2nd division with minimal spectators could/should attract a big sponsorship deal?

People always think about these things as if everyone in power likes the sport as much as them. Crazy.

The teams would get a few thousand each per season (at best) which would be wiped out by people thinking I can't be bothered going the game, or travelling away so I'll just watch it on TV & gate receipts dip.

Negotiating involves having good bargaining power, which the teams don't as they would bring little to the table commercially.

@torn-sock-1 I’m not claiming to know what the championship could bring in from a tv deal but if say widnes are on tv twice in a season then we could potentially negotiate better deals with jersey and shorts sponsorships. Betfred are the current sponsors but potentially we’d get bigger and better offers Two games a season if we lost 5% of supporters through the gate I’d like to think the extra revenue would more than offset the loss of ticket sales

5% loss at 2,000 spectators at 20 quid is £2k. How much do you think a company would pay to be watched by what 10,000 people (No idea on championship TV figures but imagine it will be very small) on tele twice a season? That's not even going to be a factor.

The championship TV deals have been given away for free in the past. There isn't the interest, commercial will or anything else to make this deal a reality. Nobody is going to pay much for a product that will have (relatively) an infinitesimal % of viewing figures, let alone having to spend a fortune to actually set this up in the first place with equipment, staff, studio etc.

In fact I would go as far as saying a TV company's costs would be more than the value of the sponsorship deal, just to put it into perspective.

@torn-sock-1 it doesn’t have to be a huge tv deal, our league app did it for a season or two. Maybe some sort of college course students could get involved and the club would be able to get it for free on a pay per view streaming service platform. I’m just trying to think of ideas for the club to make extra revenue and so I can watch the games 🤣

Plenty of Widnes fans living in Australia too so not a bad shout. Possibly Matty Taylor or MT could answer this one for you. A survey of interest put on social media and the Official site at what cost per game. Plus no point if only 5 people interested to buy? Big football clubs do it because the fan base is huge and not sure on costs to the club to make it worthwhile mate.
