Richest match is worth £130m

MIDDLESBROUGH stand to bank £50m more than Norwich if they win football’s richest match, the Championship play-off final, at Wembley on Monday.

Promotion to the Premier League is worth £130m in extra revenue and, in the event of relegation, guaranteed payouts to cope with readjusting to life outside the elite division. But, say Deloitte, Norwich stand to benefit by a comparatively meagre £80m, as they have already benefited from the so-called parachute payments following their relegation last season.
