That’s only in England: Nottingham Forrest wins the highest paid game in world football and is suddenly a “multimillionaire”. Curiously, the game took place in the English second division.
Nottingham celebrate: Nottingham Forrest win the play-off final of the second English division and thus climb back into the Premier League after 23 years. This rise gives the Tricky Trees an enormous windfall and now enables the club to gear up for the premier league and top-flight matches against clubs like Liverpool and Chelsea.
200 million euros: The relegation game for promotion in England is considered the most valuable in world football: the winner receives 200 million euros. That dream came true with the 1-0 win over Huddersfield Town at Wembley Stadium. Fulham FC and AFC Bournemouth have also been promoted.
TV money makes it possible: The rain of money was made possible by the extension of the TV rights a year ago: These include a payment of 5.5 billion euros to the clubs. The money will be paid by Sky Sports, BT Sport and Amazon. Another deal with NBC in the US brings in a total of 2.4 billion euros.
