Watching RL Back-Chat this week and Wakey's Mick Carter explains the payments from Sky for showing Thursday and Friday games.
Basically you have 80K from your annual Sky payment withheld and put into a pot. Your first Thursday and Friday games you do not get anything back then, your next Thursday game gets you 20K and your next Friday game gets you 15K and so on throughout the season. Carter stated that Wakey have never reached the 80K mark at the end of the season because they haven't been on Sky enough times.
A quick look at our season so far for 2019 and we are on 95K - 15 grand up, which is good in a business sense but with poorer gates on Thursday's/Friday's to alleviate this bonus. Any team that play regular on Fridays like Leeds, Saints and Wigan should be quids in.
