SEC to distribute record $309.6 million between 14 member schools

The SEC will distribute approximately $309.6 million of total revenue distributions among the 14 member schools, SEC Commissioner Mike Slive announced today.

The average amount distributed from the conference office, excluding bowl money retained by participants, will total more than $20.9 million per school.

The distributions are calculated based on the revenue sharing plan for the 2013-14 fiscal year which ends August 31, 2014. It is the highest revenue amount in SEC history.

The total includes $292.8 million distributed from the conference office, as well as $16.8 million of revenue from bowl games this past season.

The total distribution amount includes revenue generated from televised football games, bowls, the SEC Football Championship, televised basketball games, the SEC Men’s Basketball Tournament, NCAA Championships and a supplemental surplus distribution.

The $309.6 million does not include $1 million of academic enhancement payments that is paid directly from the NCAA and divided among the 14 member institutions. Revenues derived by member institutions from their local media packages are also not included in the total amount.

Here is a look at the past five years of SEC revenue distributions:

2009 ($165.9 million); 2010 ($233.3 million); 2011 ($248.1 million); 2012 ($256.9 million); 2013 ($304.7 million).
