[Albion] Prize money for finishing 6th in the Premier League this season

At c£2.2m per place, starting with Championship-bound Southampton and working up, the Albion will pick up a cool £33m for our ASTOUNDING 6th place finish.

How much does a monorail cost? Asking for a friend.
Enough to buy Colwill?

I appreciate I'm taking your question WAY too seriously but, in short, quite a lot!

5 minutes of online research suggests it could set us back a few hundred million, maybe more. But if we add the 33 million to the TV money and profits from player sales, we can probably get it done. Just St Peter's Church to Calmer to begin with, extending to Lewes from 2028.

Will the journey be included in the match ticket though? Fingers crossed for a decent Sunday service.

Croydon tramlink cost £200 million 23 years ago so I suspect a similar project would be 5 or 10 times that cost now.

Not sure it would be feasible but brighton being a compact city with high population density would be an ideal candidate for a tram network, I wonder if its very been considered??

Enough to cover the 20% annual bonus received by each staff member and player of the Club - Im sure TB/PB factored that one in 👏

Isn't it £100m plus the £2.2m per place?
The £2.2m per place is the prize money (or "merit payment" I think it is officially called), based solely on final league position.

But, yes, beyond that, every club gets the same c£84m just for being in the Premier League this season and, on top of that, there is the "facility fee" which you receive in proportion to how often you are on TV. I think that was something like £14-15m for us last year.

Trams? TRAMS?

We don't want cocking TRAMS! We want a Magical Monorail... :albion2:

St. Peters provide a decent Sunday service already I believe.

The bonuses are covered by the insurance policy Tony took out in January.

Season 2021/22 our total broadcasting income was £126m. Finishing 9th and without the FAC run.

Trolley bus, and yes, I'm old enough to remember them in the Old Steine.

@drew Yesterday Bozza posted a link to where Bloom had already offset the Europe qualification bonus with another company, so that's already in the pot.

@Icy Gull don't forget Sanchez going the other way.
