editorial image

BARNSLEY’s impressive run to the FA Cup quarter-finals is likely to net the club around £855,000 in combined prize and TV money, as well as ticket sales.

The Reds earned £337,5000 in prize money for their progress to the quarter-finals, £233,000 in TV revenue and a further £85,000 in tickets sales up to now.

The club are expected to pocket a further £200,000 in ticket sales for last Saturday’s defeat against Manchester City, although the final anticipated earnings of £855,000 does not include money paid out in player bonuses.
