'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Share The Money Says Whelan


Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan is calling for a greater share out of the TV revenue that is making its way to the top four clubs, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United and leaving the rest of the Premier League poor in comparison.

Whelan says with a more even split the clubs outside the top four would see an increase in revenue of 15 million and that would go a long way to making the League much more competitive

Whelan claims that the EPL at the moment is not a league on its own but three league`s he told the press: "It is not a Premier League at the moment"

"There are the top four, some in between and the rest at the bottom struggling to stay in the division. We need an equal distribution of finance for the health of the league.

"We have to be fair because we are all in the same league and we all appear on television.

"Manchester United or Chelsea need somebody to play on the television, so we are as entitled as they are to the money that comes in from broadcasters.

"That is fair and would help bring some equality to the league."


With another 15 million each in coming in this would surely add some parity to the division and turn the whole league into something much more competitive
