In the 2016-17 fiscal year, a total of $596.9 million in total revenue was divided among the 14 SEC Institutions with Arkansas receiving $44 million.
The total of $596.9 million for the fiscal year includes $573.8 million from the conference office in addition to $23.1 million retained by schools invited to play in a bowl game this past season. That $23.1 million is used for travel along with other bowl-related expenses.
The total, excluding revenue teams received for bowl invitations, amounts
to over $40.9 million per school.
“This distribution from the SEC is instrumental to our universities’ athletics programs ability to provide the highest possible level of support for the thousands of student-athletes who participate annually in nearly two dozen conference sports,” Commissioner Greg Sankey said. “This commitment to excellence encompasses superior support in coaching, equipment, training, academic counseling, medical care and life-skills development for our student-athletes.”
