Notts to receive parachute payment after relegation

Recommended Posts

I'm surprised there is a parachute payment.

There was a person on Twitter who mentioned this, he compared it to a Premier League players weekly wage. It's quite silly, no wonder the modern game is all messed up. The Football League tries to ruin it for fans, clubs are biased and have favourites. It's all messed up.

good to know there is some income coming in, with 20 something players due to leave i think it would help more than some might think.

It's better than nothing, I am surprised to learn it's half a mil!

I would have thought it would be closer to peanuts.

I just hope its not wasted on wages for players that need to be let go or not needed backroom staff.

Its better than nothing, I wasn't aware that a parachute payment happened but the club should have put the worst case scenario into place so this past seasons wages might not be an issue.

Its a decent payout, one I did not expect.

I hope the money comes as the season kicks off and to new owners.

I am extremely disheartened with the failure to understand the financial consequences. This is not "new" money, Notts received £1m as part of the TV deal monies as part of being a member of the EFL. That money is immediately LOST, in its place, just for one season, is a parachute payment of 500k.... so Notts have LOST net £500k income... I would imagine the parachute payment is paid monthly in instalments.

It's £250,000 for two years @Piethagoram, that makes up the £500,000.

The club will get a lower amount for the Vanarama National League coverage, so some will come back but if we go based solely on the EFL it's £750,000 loss and another if Notts fails to gain promotion thereafter.

We can feel disappointed about being relegated, there was time to turn things around and the loss of income stems down to the lack of application.

This £500,000 split over two years seems more than generous.
