Premier League: How much income each team will lose if 2019/20 season is cancelled

Manchester United v Watford FC - Premier League

Liverpool’s U-turn on their decision to furlough non-playing staff isn’t helpful to every club in the Premier League.

It’s placed an added pressure on those clubs who are considering furloughing staff not to do so, despite the financial impact it will have.

“It’s not helpful for us,” one club executive told the Daily Mail, also observing Manchester City’s decision to not use the government’s 80 per cent pay scheme.

Clubs like Liverpool and Man City, who are bankrolled by a sheikh with an estimated net worth of £24 billion, can afford to keep paying their staff fully while football is on hold.

But that’s not the case for all 20 teams, with Burnley admitting they will go bust by August if the lockdown doesn’t end.

“The fact of the matter is, if we don’t finish the season and there isn’t a clear start date for next season, we, as a club, will run out of money by August,” Burnley chairman Mike Garlick warned last week, per The Sun.

The Daily Mail have carried out research into how much each club will miss out on in lost income if the season is cancelled.

The biggest chunk of missed income for most clubs will be TV cash. Sheffield United will miss out on £38.8 million in lost TV money, while Leicester City stand to lose £48.5m.

Clubs will also lose anticipated matchday money as well as commercial and retail income, which the Mail predict will mean a 15-20 per cent hit for each club.

So Man United are set to miss out on the biggest windfall, although the Mail add that the figures aren’t definitive.

Norwich, who have already furloughed staff, stand to lose the least amount, but £19.5m is a lot to a club whose Premier League status isn’t certain.
