If the English championship playoff final us worth 170 million to the winners does anyone know what the spelling championship playoff was worth to Hamilton? 170 K?

I'm not going to mention the spelling but it's worth at least 170 million. I think that's the value based on the winner being relegated the first season. No idea about Hamilton.

From last April. We get just under 500k for winning the league.

2 shots on target in 95 mins. Lots of very average, athletic and overpaid footballers.

A bit hacked off that H'field didnae take at least one of their good chances at the start of the first half as had them ht-ft, money back as a free bet from Laddies as the game was a draw after 90 mins, could've been worse.

Pile your money onto the winners of this being first confirmed relegated next season. Really poor after a bright start.

Oh for the days of Charlton vs Sunderland 3-3 draws and the like. Doesn't seem to be many great play off final games...too much to lose weighing the teams down maybe?

It's been quoted a lot more than that. 270m apparently.

And this was kind of the point of my opinion. So much hype. Watching the Hamilton Arabs fame there was no mention if how much staying up was worth to Hamilton. Also mm any empty seats at Wembley

No, I hate SPL chairman for not accepting a Sky deal 9 years ago that is worth much more than they pay now. We picked Setanta thanks to the business acumen of SPL chairman.

Irony is they are the bigges investor in Scottish football. Our chairman are so spineless, they can't negotiate.

Sky used the 120 million the then SPL knocked back and put it into the EFL.

I recently read the most recent "secret footballer" book.

He goes on about the lack of negotiating skill that the football clubs in England have. Basically all the players would happily play for significantly less, but English football seems to defy the laws of economics and keeps getting bigger and bigger. Instead of driving a hard bargain they just pay the players more and more and more. The players aren't exactly complaining about it.

I remember the famous story about Seth Johnson negotiating with Peter Ridsdale which seemed to back this up.

I thought it was Roger Mitchell who knocked it back as he believed they could squeeze a lot more out of them. It may be that he was simply the mouthpiece of the chairmen though.

They've never had a crack at the Premier League before. Good luck to them.

Listened to the game on talk sport and all they banged on about was how much this game was worth to the winners.
And here was me thinking it was all about the prestige of playing at the top level and league in your respective country rather than what's it's worth financially.

Your timing is way out, it was 15 years ago. The original Sky deal was rejected in 2002. The SPL signed up with the BBC after Sky withdrew their offer.

The Setanta deal came in 2004 and when they collapsed, Sky and BT emerged in 2009.

Suspect they'll be up and down.

Of the 3 that've gone up, Brighton will be interesting to watch.

No.

It happened twice. Originally in 2002, when Roger Mitchell played a dangerous game and lost. It also meant the loss of good highlights and magazine shows.

Then in 2008, the tender went out, Sky bid 120 million, Setanta 125 million, to start in 2010. Aberdeen, Celtic and Rangers voted for Sky, everyone else voted for Setanta. Setanta deflated on their current/old deal one year later, Sky (who had spent the money and filled the slots) and start up channel ESPN went in together and shared the rights matched Setanta's old deal.

The Scottish FA, also in 2008, negotiated a deal with Sky and BBC for the Scottish Cup and Internationals at a much better price.

My point is in all of this, these companies, Sky, ESPN/BT and BBC are willing to and have shown that they will pay decent money, to the Scottish FA and UEFA for various rights involving Scotland or Scottish clubs but not the SPFL, say a lot.

All Huddersfield season tickets were 199.00 until they went off sale before the play offs.

17,000 sold watching premiership football for 10.50 a game!

Aye - back in the 1930's. It's a great achievement for them to have got to the EPL and I truly wish them all the luck for next season. They're going to need it. 170 million isn't much to play with in the context of the EPL, but if Wagner's as good as they say he is ...

Who knows?

The Hamilton chairman was on after the game and mentioned they get 1m down near the bottom of th league and the top championship teams get 300k......that together with 500k parachute payments mean they would be down 200k.
As for us, that's a decent jump, and re-enforces the positives of being back in this league. (Although compare to the 170m in the EPL and its smash.

This ones even better,

"Huddersfield supporters who have held season tickets since 2009 will be able to buy one for 100 next season. Around 5 a game."

What a reward for loyalty.

How do you work that one out? Went down with a pretty high total of 39 points, 6 points more than West Ham, beat Spurs, did the double over Liverpool, scored 4 goals against United (lost both games though). Im a Blackpool lad, there was no shame in what Blackpool did or achieved in the Premier league. Pity about the ownership though.

I wasn't meaning to demean what Blackpool did, bad example. I was more trying to suggest that the smaller teams should be applauded for acheiving this feat rather than being labelled the worst team to be promoted.

Bloomin' donkey lashers.

On the subject of smallest towns, Huddersfield is deceptively large in relative terms. Population of 162,000 although Kirklees borough is huge with a population of over 400,000 to draw from, featuring a lot of smaller neighbouring towns of which none of them have even senior level non-league sides.

Burnley has a population of only 70,000 and Blackburn just over 100,000 but both draw support from the countless towns and villages around them, which goes some way to explaining Accrington's constant struggle for crowds.

I'm not claiming that they're a "massive " club, but they certainly have a significantly bigger support than teams like Bournemouth, Hull, or Wigan.
