*Additionally, it is important to note that the obligations of Article 6.1 of the RD include in section a) the allocation of 3.5% to a Compensation Fund from which clubs taking part in LaLiga competitions and which are relegated to a lower division may benefit. The Clubs/Public Limited Sports Companies which were relegated at the end of the 2017/18 season and, therefore, were entitled to receive such compensation during the 2018/19 season were those relegated to LaLiga SmartBank, highlighted in the previous table with an asterisk (*), and those relegated to Segunda Division B, listed below:

II. Criteria for distributing broadcasting revenues

The revenue obtained for the joint exploitation and marketing of audiovisual rights of LaLiga Santander, LaLiga SmartBank and the Copa del Rey[1] have been distributed among the clubs participating in LaLiga Santander and LaLiga SmartBank in accordance with the criteria of Article 5 "Criteria for distributing revenue among participants in the National League Championship" and Article 8 "Exceptions in the marketing and distribution of audiovisual rights of the Copa del Rey and the Super Cup" of the RD[2].

In this way:

1)  In accordance with the requirements of Article 5.3.b).1 of the RD, given that LaLiga SmartBank has more than 20 teams, the percentages received in accordance with their sporting results have been adjusted as per the following section of said article, maintaining a progressive structure based on the results, as set out in the following table:

2)  In accordance with the requirements of Article 5.3.b).2 of the RD, the percentages distributed to the clubs in LaLiga Santander and LaLiga SmartBank based on Social Influence (Implantación Social) weighting have been determined according to the 1)  following criteria: one third based on the club’s average income from season tickets and gate receipts over the past five seasons, and the remaining two thirds based on the club’s contribution to broadcast resource generation calculated through a comparison with the average audiences recorded by the participating clubs in each season.

 

The latter criterion was duly approved by the Division Boards of the respective divisions during the meetings held on 11 December 2015, and these were the competent bodies as established in the Articles of Association of the Liga Nacional de Futbol Profesional.

[1] In the latter case, because the Spanish Football Federation has entrusted the marketing of the Copa del Rey audiovisual rights (except for the final) to Liga in accordance with RD Article 8.2 and the Agreements dated 11 August 2014, 24 July 2015 and 11 November 2015.
