Norwich City earned £64.5m in commercial broadcast payments for the 2013/14 Premier League season, an 18% increase on the previous campaign, according to official figures released on Wednesday.

City’s relegation to the Football League was confirmed last weekend after losing 2-0 to Arsenal at Carrow Road, and the scale of the financial cost moving forward was underlined by the publication of figures for the first completed season of the new £5.5billion broadcast deal signed by the Premier League last summer covering domestic and overseas television rights.

Norwich were ranked 18th in total broadcast revenue, in line with their final finishing position on the pitch, with only relegated rivals Cardiff and Fulham earning less. City earned £46m in broadcast revenue 12 months ago and £45.6m in 2012.

All Premier League clubs earned an equal membership share of £21.6m, along with equal shares of £26.2m in overseas television money and £4.2m from a central commercial pot. The rest of City’s cut was drawn from £3.7m in merit payments, for their final finishing position, and £8.6m in a facilities fee from domestic television coverage.

Cardiff still banked more from finishing bottom of the Premier League this past season than Manchester United earned as champions the previous campaign. The Bluebirds received £62.08million, compared to United’s £60.8m for winning the 2012/13 title.

Manchester City, who succeeded United as champions on Sunday with a second title in three years, earned £96.5m, with second-placed Liverpool the top earners with £97.5m as a consequence of more of their games being screened live by broadcasters. City’s windfall was almost £36m more than United’s last term.

Manuel Pellegrini’s men did not top the league, though, as they appeared in 25 games broadcast in the UK by either Sky Sports or BT Sport, compared to Liverpool’s 28.

Third-placed Chelsea, United and Arsenal also appeared in 25 live televised games and Cardiff were one of eight teams to appear in 10 live matches.

The Welshmen, who returned to the Championship after one season in the top-flight, received over £22m more than QPR did in finishing last in the 2012/13 season.

The Canaries appeared on live television ten times last season, helped by a late season run which saw three consecutive matches against Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea broadcast.

  • Bit puzzled by this sudden interest in all things German from our fans..? Where did that come from? How many successful Premiership managers have come from the land of the bratwurst? I can't think of many off hand. My ex-Bomber Command Dad would be turning in his grave ( except that he's still alive as the Luftwaffe missed him..). Rammstein would make an excellent midfield + we could play "Deutschland Deutschland über alles" as our goal celebration. Bring back Von Lambert ( he learned to coach in Germany) this may just work....Unt Ze Ball City !!!

First problem is you get abused by NCFC posters of the microencephalic persuasion. Then the the seemingly civilized "outsider" may prove to be a trolling tvverp. Stone me.

  • I have no problem with a German manager but preferably one I have heard of and who is a good organiser (the latter making most of Germany eligible). A few German players as well please to pass the ball around intelligently until Hoops and Assombalonga are in position to convert the chances. It will also mean the end of Snoddy's career as penalty taker.

  • I can never hear the tannoy in the lower barclay what so ever. The most pressing issue other than the tannoy, the yellow goal nets (or lack of should I say), goal music is obvious. Its the woeful prizes on offer for the golden goal game. My friend gets a golden goal ticket every game despite me mocking him. The chances of getting the exact minute and second a goal is scored is stupidly low (especially considering how we never score!). They dont even list the prizes on offer but I always assumed it be a signed ball or shirt. Yet when my friend finally won, what did he recieve? I tiny signed photo of John Ruddy. Im talking on a bit of card, the kind you find in the club shop. This is such a pressing issue. Im assuming the board are discussing this and our other raised issues before announcing the new manager.

I just want a mobile phone to use in an emergency not permanently attached to my ear. As with football it's just a game with tribal affiliations hyped up ridiculously. I just want to support my team not listen to group of pundits telling me the ins and outs of a game that are patently obvious. I'll have to make it to the Plastered Arms next time you have a gathering, is there a password or special handshake to gain entry. By the way the Tannoy system in the part of the Jarrold stand is rubbish.

  • Oh, Gibbo, that was an out-take from yesterday`s Seminar of Senility with The Serial Suspects at the Troweller`s Trunk:- Footy players with holiday jobs. Riding push bikes. Living in Club houses off Dereham Road. Doing a bit of `physio` for cash. `Normal` people, until Jimmy "The Chin" Hill came along, opening the floodgates to Sky, Oilygarchs, Fake Tan Men and Boston Baseball blokes bearing an obsession with Colored Sox. Gibbo - you should join the Steely Dan-led take on "The last of the Summer Whine", held sporadically at the aforementioned Inn. Though I do wonder whether The King`s Cranium, just across the road, a bit along from Mattias`s Tardis, parked in the coverered toilet area near Anglia Square (ie beneath the flyover), might have a better selection of bevvies. Hewett School 1965, eh, Gibbo? My old buddy Mattias - Gibbo`s OK, but you do risk attack from some quarters if you try to `lighten the mood`. Btw, don`t they allow you to bring your own cue into the Barclay Bars? I didn`t even know they had pool tables there! ;-)

  • They've already changed our anthem it's not the same words or tune as I sang in the Good Old Days. Why not go back to a handshake and a pat on the back,do we need a group love-in or stupid dance routine for every goal scored. As for all that money swimming around let's go back to English players in our leagues with the occasional Johnny Foreigner and stuff Sky and BT. Footballers taking summer jobs to supplement their wages, oh for the good old days. Scoff ye not we won the World Cup then, so there must be something to it, we've not won anything internationally since.

Soon as they removed the sacred goal music the goals vanished! How is the player mean't to get any incentive to score knowing he won't have any brazilian samba music to run around to afterwards? Shame on all of you who moaned to have it removed when more important things were going wrong at the club ;)

  • The main achievement since the arrival of Delia and Michael is the club becoming debt free. However the roller coaster that got us there is still in motion as we contemplate the affects of another relegation. The loss of income is massive. What the board has never grasped is the importance of having a football structure in place. That is what generates the income. Sorry, but Lambert was an illusion in the sense he delivered financial salvation to a board that got lucky but left us a bunch of overperforming championship players that needed replacing. Part of the problem with CH was that inheritance. There was never really anything in place for him to build on. Now McNally is talking about learning the lessons and changing the structure. Look at Swansea. Similar size club, history of debt, but they had a vision of how they wanted to play, brought in players to suit their style and made good managerial appointments. Now, unlike us, they are in a strong position to invest and grow.

  • My view re "invest and grow" normanh is that football is an odd business where it is too easy to invest yet not grow. Before last season began the club invested heavily in players but then the board dithered endlessly as the season fell apart, only taking action far too late. To survive in the top flight on limited resources the football structure needs to be right (Swansea) and that has never been the case since Delia and Michael took over. Sure, there are reasons to be grateful but they have delivered a roller coaster ride, not a smooth running one. My one hope from recent statements is where McNally says lessons will be learnt. I hope so because these constant gambles on managers and players do nothing for either the club's financial stability or footballing stature.

  • Little Yellow Birdie, the board did not make mistake in withholding funds, it was a financial decision. We were in the third season of the premiership, not the first. Any business must invest and grow. This board has seemingly decided not to invest or grow. Look forward to many years of championship football, if we survive the first season. I admire your faith in the board. whatever past achievements we have been relegated due to their " mistakes ". I notice that Mac " I would sooner die than be relegated" Nally is alive and well. More than can be said for N City.

  • Our estimated players wage spend for the past season was £45m so deduct that from tv money and you have £20m left plus parachute payments of £15m (£60m over 4 yrs). So, because there is no debt, we start the season with a kitty of around £35m. That would not even meet last seasons wages. However McNally recently stated the players all have contracts that allow for cutting pay if relegated.One has to assume those cuts are significant to make ends meet. Now we look for a quick return to the PL while deprived of all that tv money and with owners who do not have the financial clout to invest anything other than club generated income streams.No wonder McNally was concerned about relegation being the football equivalent of death.

  • Brewer - continuing from the previous post (like the banal dullard I am) - is not sharing your particular sense of humour, which appears almost wholly based on posting abstract twisted quasi-synonyms, really grounds for suggesting someone is humourless? Do you view yourself as some sort EDP Milton Jones? More like Lenny Henry, you're just not very funny. I'm sure many people will have some fond memories of the last 3 seasons. I weirdly find mine being the Pep-style sabbatical you took from posting. Perhaps you could consider another? You are self-important, presumptuous, regularly stealthily divisive and falsely accusatory. You are often dismissive of people who don't share your views and simply insulting to those you don't feel you can (or simply can't) intellectually bully. Re our previous conversation - I'm a bore because I challenged your populist view on tax avoidance (which you called criminal)? How does it go? Oh yes..."define libel"...pr1ck.

  • I am all for ensuring NCFC is a successful business, but I do not see the balance between the football side and the money side. Many big businesses have failed because of short term financial focus, and I am worried we could be heading in that direction. Our current owner is not rich enough to build the club to success, or even mid-table EPL. Either we need to be sold to someone who wants to buy success, or we have to be incredibly focused on getting a "better bang for the buck" than anyone else, under the current owner, who also must not meddle and protect "non-producers". Just reading between the lines.

  • Yes Norman. We all imagined the 30 million spent on players last Summer. Because there's no way the board will ever spend any money on the team. Honestly, time to get over the nonsense. The board wants us to be in the Premier League. The board's judgement got us from League One to the Premier League in two seasons. They kept us in the Premier League for three seasons. It's ironic that the season they spent the most on was the one where we tripped up, but that's life. The board will be dead set on doing everything they can to get us back in the Premier League. This is a season and a half's money we've got here at the end of the day relative to a couple of seasons ago, plus £60m over four years. The board will no doubt reflect on what went wrong last season and make sure it doesn't happen again.

  • Mad Brewer, one thing for certain the money accrued by this board will not be spent on the team. They stood idly by and watched us slide into oblivion,soccer wise, though they still reaped the financial reward. Delia no longer owns the restaurant bearing her name at Carrow Road. The club is in terrific financial shape. Maybe ripe for selling. Delia deserves everything as without her it is doubtful that N City would exist. As for Mac" I would rather die than be relegated " Nally, it is to be noted that he is still healthy and earning a lot of money wheeling and dealing behind the scenes.

We need a few better creative players and then i believe the goals will start flowing and we'l be back up. Its not rocket science, our strikers were just not getting the ball, and without the ball not even God himself could score.

I also thought the parasite payments were about £60m over 4 years, norman hall, but Steely usually has his digits on the pulse. More worrisome is what the vva****rs will waste it on this time.

  • SteelyDan, the FA are in the process of increasing the " Parachute payment " to the relegated clubs. A figure of 60 million over four years has, I believe, been mentioned .As it stands N City will receive over forty million over four years. My figures may not be accurate but they about right. The board decided against investing in the team during the January window and changing manager ,giving the City a chance to stave of relegation. The decision of keeping the money and knowing that there more is on its way even when relegated is the one taken by this board. Shame on them. We deserved better and they should have shown the loyalty that the supporters demonstrate week in,week out. After all the gate money and sell out season tickets are the supporters personal investment.

  • I think that things went a little 'pear-shaped' once we started doing the thing that I always hoped we wouldn't - the signing of 'has-been' Premiership stars. It was QPR's undoing the season before so I was hoping that CH and co would have taken tips from their downfall. Hopefully we can now concentrate on using a little of this money for the signing of players from the Championship and below who are hungry for success - not players who are simply looking for an extra pay-packet or two before retiring.

  • The big positive is that this is money well above what the teams we will be playing next year will have earned. This should be a big advantage. We need to spend sensibly and not waste it though, as even if we do go straight up we might need some of it to strengthen the squad to prevent going straight back down.
