Ekstraklasa predicts boost in revenue

Poland’s top-tier men’s football league, the Extraklasa, has predicted its revenue will increase in the 2018-19 season ahead of a new media-rights cycle from 2019-20.

Reports suggest budget assumptions of the Ekstraklasa for the 2018-19 season will see the league earn a total of PLN 190m (€44m/$50m), with the clubs set to receive about PLN 167m.

Global media-rights revenue is currently an average of PLN 148m per season, after NC Plus signed a four-season deal with the league, from 2015-16 to 2018-19. The league was advised on the deal by the MP & Silva agency.

The Ekstraklasa is currently in the process of negotiating a new domestic deal from 2018-19. A deal is expected to be completed in the next few weeks which will likely further increase Ekstraklasa revenue.
