Bayern get close to 100 million euros TV income
Champions Bayern Munich will rake in close to 100 million euros (116 million dollars) from Bundesliga television income next season while runners-up RB Leipzig must be content with less than a third of the sum, Kicker sports magazine said on Monday.
Kicker said Munich would receive 97.7 million euros to rank ahead of Borussia Dortmund (86.5) and Schalke (79,7) from domestic and international Bundesliga TV rights.
Leipzig by contrast are last with 29.6 million euros, because they only joined the top flight last year and most of the money is distributed via a five-year ranking.
The German Football League (DFL) did not want to comment on the report.
Kicker said the 36 Bundesliga and second division teams would receive 968 million euros from German rights and 208 million from international marketing next season.
It is the first year of a four-year deal worth 4.64 billion euros overall, generating more than 1 billion euros per season for the first time.
