How much is promotion really worth to Hull City?

Soccer - npower Football League Championship - Hull City v Cardiff City - KC Stadium

HULL City are up into the Premier League. How much is that worth, then?

£150m – The Independent
£130m – Japan Times
£120m – The Times
£100m – This Is Hull
£90m – Bloomberg
£80m – Malky Mackay (Cardiff City manager)
£60m – Vital Football

Who’s right? Adam Bull, a senior consultant in Deloitte’s Sports Business Group, came up with £120m

“The three Championship clubs which are promoted this season can expect a revenue increase of more than £60m in 2013-14… Based on existing distribution methods, even if a club is relegated after one season in the Premier League, it will be entitled to parachute payments over the following four seasons of around £60m.”

Kerching! Now, is Harry Redknapp available to help spend some of that cash..?
