The Spanish newspaper "Mundo Deportivo" published last night (Tuesday) that Maccabi Tel Aviv, Panathinaikos and Olympiacos are threatening to leave the Euroleague in favor of the Champions League in light of the crisis in the plant's economic conduct under Secretary General Jordi Bartomeu. It seems that this is nothing more than the teams' attempt to improve their conditions, according to sources in the Euroleague.



The discussion in recent days between the armored teams revolved around economic matters. 40,000 euros for each win in the regular season and 70,000 euros for a win in the playoffs, so that in its good seasons at the factory, Maccabi Tel Aviv won 600,000 euros, and less than 400 euros, in addition to the distribution of revenues from broadcasting rights, which stood at 1.5 million euros each From the armored groups to the factory, and half a million euros to the non-armored groups.



Last season the method was changed, and only the teams that finished in places 1-14 won a grant.

The lowest grant for 14th place was 150,000 euros, while the 13th place where Maccabi Tel Aviv was last year received 200,000 euros.

The team in third place won 750,000 euros, the second received 850,000 euros and the winner of the factory enjoyed an income of 1.5 million euros.

According to the old system, Maccabi Tel Aviv would win 560,000 euros, and the Euroleague Barcelona would win 1.35 million euros.

The Champions League is a completely different world.

The factory set up by FIBA ​​in the 2016/17 season promises a million euros to the winner, and after playing 14 games in the home stage in the first years, and on the way to the title at least 6 more games, this year each team may play only 16 games until winning the title. Guaranteed to a winner in the home court, compared to a minimum of 18 for a Euroleague winner.



And what about money?

The gap between the winner of the Champions League and the winner of the Euroleague is not large.

The Champions League champion receives a million euros, but everyone below it receives significantly lower amounts - 400,000 euros for the team in second place, 200,000 euros for third place, 140,000 euros for the team in third place and 120,000 euros for teams that are eliminated in the quarterfinals.

The teams that are relegated in the first or second home stage receive 40 and 80 thousand euros respectively.

According to various publications, the large teams in the factory - Malaga, Hapoel Jerusalem, Glatsray and others who abandoned the Eurocup in favor of the BCL - won a contract that brings them another amount of unreported money and it is estimated that it is several hundred thousand shekels more.

As far as Maccabi Tel Aviv is concerned, the calculation is quite simple: unless FIBA ​​guarantees them a very high sum, the move to the Champions League does not seem like a profitable move. if yellow will carry the threat, they likely will not be alone in the factory. If teams like Panathinaikos and Olympiakos will join, this will make the possibility of winning more difficult, and the arrival to the maximum amount of one million euros more difficult.



Euroleague Maccabi Tel Aviv struggling for qualifying playoffs Each season, and its seasonal average is around 15 wins usually, so the income is about 600,000 euros according to the old outline, while according to the new outline between 300,000 and half a million euros (which the teams that finish in 7th-7th places receive). Million franchisees, receive a sum of almost 2 million euros each season. FIBA ​​will have to make a supreme effort to equal those amounts.



And what happens with the decline in the number of games?

It will probably be worth a safe drop in revenue.

Maccabi Tel Aviv brings in between subscriptions and tickets between NIS 40 million and NIS 50 million a year, if you rely on the details submitted to receive the safety net money last season.

Damage to the team's main source of income and offsetting the number of games in half, may lead to direct budget damage.

While spending on games, rentals and security, will also drop by the order of millions, it is still a not-so-simple economic blow.
