Prize Money increase for Serie A clubs

Serie-A-fixtures-2011It has been reported that the financial incentives for clubs will improve by nearly double next season, although there will still be a significant gap between the top and bottom half of the table.

For clinching their second consecutive last term received €7.05 million from the league authority and this figure will now increase 85 percent to €13.05m.

If were to secure second place once more next season they would now receive €12.7m.

However, as reported by Fulvio Bianchi of Repubblica there will still be a sizeable disparity between the sides finishing in the top 10 with that club receiving €5.88m and the team in 13th just €3.17m in comparison.

The increase in prize money of around €40m has come from new business partners the league have acquired for merchandising areas such as video game association and trading cards.

Whatever the reasoning behind the increase to Serie A clubs all will welcome the increase as they continue to compete with their European counterparts.

Kevin Pogorzelski

- My interest in Italian football began with the broadcasting of Football Italia in the early 90's, turning to infatuation with the Champions League victories of AC Milan, Paolo Maldini an all-time hero, and Juventus in 1994 and 1996. With no allegiance to any Italian side in particuar I have a strange fascination with Genoa since witnessing them beat my beloved Liverpool in the 1992 UEFA Cup. The last two decades following the reds have strangely seen frequent contests against Italian opposition. Also writing for thefootballmagazine.com, you can follow me on Twitter: @rabbitrabbiton
