LaLiga unveils distribution of commercialization of TV rights
LaLiga has published distribution of the commercialization of television rights by Royal Decree-Law 5/2015.
Every year, LaLiga publishes the official data corresponding to the seasonal distribution of the commercialization of television rights as provided for in Royal Decree-Law 5/2015 of April 30.
The distribution criteria are set out in Article 5 of the RD-Law 5/2015. In addition, this year the income and obligations resulting from the application of the agreement of the LaLiga General Assembly of December 10, 2021/ Boost LaLiga Plan - CVC will be added.
Three LaLiga clubs are among the European teams with the most revenue from the distribution of audiovisual rights. Real Madrid and FC Barcelona are on a par with the six highest-earning Premier League clubs. If we add Atlético de Madrid, all three have a higher share of audiovisual rights revenue than any club in the German Bundesliga, Italian Serie A and French Ligue 1.
Furthermore, in LaLiga, revenues from the commercialisation of audiovisual rights have grown by 15% since the 2016/2017 season (from €1,390m to €1,601m) compared to the Premier League, which has grown by 5% over the same period (€2,398m to €2,536m). A good figure considering that the number of pay TV subscribers in the UK is twice as high as that in Spain (15 million subscribers compared to more than 6.4 million in Spain), the number of subscribers to OTT platforms is also more than twice as high in the UK as in Spain (36 million subscribers compared to 14 million in Spain), as well as having a higher population, a higher number of households and a higher per capita income level than in Spain.
