I wonder if they will initially concentrate on foreign broadcasting rights etc to get the ball rolling?

Well, the UK broadcast rights  are with BT until 2021 in the current deal, so any renegotiation out of that deal would no doubt be costly, and Gallagher have only just joined as primary sponsor this season, so CVC will have to concentrate on secondary sponsors as broadcast rights outside the UK for now...

It's a one-off payment. So won't make a difference - other than the teams now all need to start to work out where and how to make up what will be diminishing TV revenue year after year.


- So it's a one-off payment that any promoted team outside the 13 will not benefit from over the coming years.
- So any promoted team will still have to buy shares in PRL from their own finances.
- So any promoted team will still have to fund their own ground improvements and top flight players without any assistance from the CVC deal.
- So any promoted team in coming years will still have to give up 35% of premiership and European revenues due to PRL and shared equally between premiership clubs each year.

Starving any club outside the privileged 13 of finances is clearly ring-fencing by the back door.

Furthermore, the assumption that CVC can increase revenue is also not at all certain. The RFU has had to eat very humble pie recently when renegotiating sponsorship deals.

That makes sense until you come back to the fact that CVC have put up £200M. They are not known for their charitable giving or their penchant for taking a large punt in the dark.

They will certainly make tv deals in new markets and market the crap out of the game where rugby isnít currently selling stuff.

This being for the benefit of any of the teams or the game in the medium to long term is the big question.

If I were Chair of a promoted team, I would look to buy my full share of PRL and with it the full share of the revenues.
The fact the remaining teams have sold shares to PRL and have to give up a larger share of their income would not be my concern.

The big question has to be are there really untapped markets.
There is an article behind the motorsport.com paywall on the difficulties Libery are finding in bringing new revenue into F1.
The fact you think you could do better, does not always mean you can.

Yeah but thatís because CVC has already made so much out of F1 - hard to expand a massively over-spanked franchise.

Every dictator on the planet has his own race, no one else can afford to host a race and barely anyone watches because itís all on pay tv worldwide.
