How does the splitting of the rights to Super Rugby work? Does each country just keep the proceeds raised from their own market? In which case, how do the international rights get split?This is the great unknown re the $30 mill offer for the rugby rights, we don't know if that's inclusive of the international rights (actually, the $30 mill is a speculative number, the Fox offer was less than that).
The last deal was around $58 mill per annum, and about half was coming from the international rights.
So if the $30 mill does not include the international rights, then it's a similar deal to last time, although represents a small decrease in real terms.
If Fox end up getting the domestic rights for less than $29 mill, we will have our first example of the rights of one of the football codes going backwards in absolute terms.
