Here’s How Much Money PCB & Franchises Earned from PSL 5
It was the first time the entire PSL tournament was held in Pakistan.
The Pakistan Super League 5 returned a total revenue of PKR two billion, one hundred and sixty seven million, seven hundred and ninety four thousand, seven hundred and forty nine (2,167,794,749) as per the initial unaudited accounts. However, the play-offs and final were postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Each franchise is likely to get PKR two hundred and fifty six million, six hundred and ninety seven thousand, ninety four (256,697,094) out of the franchises’ total revenue pool, which stands at PKR one billion, five hundred and forty million, one hundred and eighty two thousand, five hundred and sixty four (1,540,182,564). According to reports, the franchises have expressed concerns considering their pool is lower than compared to last year.
The main reason for the reduced pool money is the suspension of the final stages of the tournament. As compared to the first stages, the last few matches generate more revenue.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will receive PKR six hundred and twenty seven million, six hundred and twelve thousand, one hundred and eighty five (627,612,185), and it will pay PKR one hundred and nine million, six hundred and fifty six thousand, four hundred and seventy four (109,656,474) as broadcasting tax and PKR fourteen million, three hundred and four thousand, three hundred and forty eight (14,304,348) as sponsorship tax.
