LaLiga is expected to distribute around 1.500 billion euros for television rights this season. Of that total, 8,5% (about 127 million) is given as aid to non-professional football and other sports disciplines. What remains (about 1373 million) is divided into two parts. Of the first 50%, about 750 million euros, the amount is identical for the 20 clubs in the category. That is, the 20 teams will receive a fixed income of around 37,5 million euros. This game is independent of your final position in the standings.

But the remaining part (about 623 million) is distributed on a percentage basis depending on the final position that each team obtains in the table. The champion takes 17% of that second half and the figure is reduced to 0,25% that the last classified takes. So, staying in one position or another clearly influences the money that you end up receiving from the employers.

Millionaire distribution: Girona and Atlético de Madrid in the first places

A money where Real Madrid, as champion and adding the fixed income plus the percentage of 17%, will take around 143 million euros.

The fourth place of the red and white means that they will receive the fixed plus 11% of the variable. In global terms it will amount to about 106 million. A little less for the two clubs in next season's Europa League. The fifth around 93 million for the landline and 9% of the rest. The sixth place that will definitely go to Real Sociedad will mean around 81 million plus the fixed amount and 7% of the remaining part.

For its part, Betis, a Conference team, has 5%, which is about 68 million. Villarreal is the first team outside of Europe finally this season. This will give you between the fixed amount and the remaining 3,5% an amount of around 59 million. Valencia is also assured of ninth place, which guarantees around 56 million for the permanent player and the remaining 3%.

There are still distributions to be determined:

The tenth place is not closed and there are three clubs that are vying to occupy it, Alavés, Osasuna and Getafe. Finishing tenth means about 54 million for the fixed rate and 2,75%. Being eleventh implies about 53 million. Here the variable is 2,50%. The twelfth position reports around 51 because here the variable percentage is 2,25%. There could also be changes from thirteenth to seventeenth in the classification where Sevilla, Celta, Las Palmas and Mallorca are.

The fifteenth about 47 (fixed plus 1,50%). About 45 the sixteenth (fixed plus 1,25%). The seventeenth 43 million where the percentage is 1%. And then there is relegation, where Cádiz will surely finish in eighteenth place.
