Leeds United are set to attend another Premier League meeting on Thursday with numerous updates set to be delivered.
The Athletic have shared a number of different things that are set to be discussed, including the return of fans and gambling companies as shirt sponsors.
Something that will affect the Whites the most is future broadcast deals, with an auction expected to take place in the coming months.
Matt Slater, writing for the Athletic on Wednesday, shared the update that could have a huge impact on the Whites moving forward.
“Premier League clubs will receive an update on future broadcast deals, with the domestic auction for TV rights expected to take place in the coming months,” they wrote.
Numerous different companies have come into the bidding war this season.
Amazon Prime have rivalled BT Sports and Sky Sports by showing complete matchdays, with the BBC also broadcasting games during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Huge news ahead.
Once you are in the Premier League, one of the main benefits is the huge income from TV rights, with it being worth hundreds of millions.
Financial Expert Kieran Maguire exclusively told MOT Leeds News at the start of the season that the TV rights would be paid over different instalments across the campaign.
Dan Plumley shared on his personal Twitter account that it would be worth up to £200million if the Whites stay up this season, and that is all-but-guaranteed.
£100m minimum for 2020/21 (based on current TV deal) and same again if they stay up for 2021/22. £200m plus figure always accounts for parachute payments (and of course the plan isn’t to get relegated). PP worth £75m over two years if club has only spent 1 year in EPL before drop

As the competition grows between the broadcasters, the money will only get bigger.
With a fresh auction set to take place sooner rather than later, this latest update in the meeting tomorrow could see Leeds and other Premier League clubs printing money.
