Its not a bad time to be a member-school of the Atlantic Coast Conference. From a revenue standpoint, anyway.
The ACC’s 12 schools brought in $203 million in revenue during the 2011-12 school year, according to ACC tax documents that were recently obtained by the News & Record.
That equates to nearly $16.9 million in revenue per school. A 38% jump from 2010-11’s $12.3 million dollar revenue payout.
Most of the revenue for the conference came from football television deals ($130.5 million), bowl game payouts ($43.8 million) and the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament ($17.7 million).
For the sake of comparison, Big Ten teams received an average payout of $23.8 million, SEC teams $20.4 million, Big 12 teams received $12 million and Pac 12 schools received $11.1 million.
As a whole, the ACC reported a $303,295 loss for the 2011-12 year, bringing in $223.5 million in revenue against $223.8 million in expenses.
