Bulgarian Football Clubs Agree On TV Income Distribution
The Bulgarian football league "has distributed its TV rights income for the 2013-14 season showing the disparity in domestic TV deals between the big leagues of Western Europe," according to Alexander Krassimirov of INSIDE WORLD FOOTBALL. Ludogorets Razgrad "was the biggest beneficiary after the club took its third consecutive title," receiving BGN 500,000 ($347,000). TV7, which holds the TV rights to the league, pays BGN 4.5M ($3.12M) per season. The clubs "approved the distribution of TV income on the same model as the previous season with 40% divided equally among the participating teams" (INSIDE WORLD FOOTBALL, 6/25).
