I just read that the SPFL will share a pay-out of £28.4M from a turnover of £36.8M with the first tranche being £3.6M from las seasons central income.

A few things.
1) Does anyone know if all 42 clubs get an equal amount?
2) Is the rest given out monthly from now on?
3) Where exactly has all their money come from?
4) How much do the SPFL keep back for themselves?
5) Could the clubs cut out the middle man and somehow and strangle the SPFL at source?

Asking for a friend.

I can’t see the money being divided equally between the 4 Leagues by the SPFL.
The way the SPFL share the prize money between the Leagues is shameful.
The Premiership receive a massive 83.25% of the overall prize money.
The Championship receives 11.05%
League One 3.45% and League Two a shocking 2.25%.
I think Airdrie tried to become a full time club last season and I would guess Falkirk are still a full time club but what chance do they have, with that amount of prize money for the bottom 2 leagues and possibly the bottom 3 leagues.

Let’s do the opposite to what the Brexiteer league does and share the wealth equitably. The SPFL would be the winner in the long run. To those to whom much is given much is expected’. (Luke 12:48)

Exactly JFP.
Celtic and other clubs should do what Sir Robert Kelly did in 1964 and protect the smaller Scottish clubs.
The majority of our Scottish Clubs have over 100 years of Unbroken History and everything should be done to help them.
Sevco Scotland have already stated they will make all the other Scottish clubs pay because they blame them for the death of Rangers FC.
That process is already in play by hindering the new Cinch Sponsorship deal.
They still can’t get away from the fact that their Old Club were caught Cheating and they only had themselves to blame.

Buzz - those stats are shocking.

Not taking care of the lower leagues is something that diminishes the potential to develop stars of the future. It may be that the top league generates most of the revenue (a slice of cup gates etc) and so expects a larger share.

If smaller teams go to the wall then IMHO that just impoverishes our games status.

I agree the distribution percentages are not balanced.
However, the clubs at the top do have higher running costs which has to be taken into consideration.

That's true but the top league also have charge higher gate prices and charge more for season books and also merchandise, plus the winner of the sfpl gets about 2 million that's not a massive amount for celtic so it could be easily shared amongst the smaller leagues.
