Bayern Munich will receive the most money from the Bundesliga's TV contract for this season. The Bavarian giants are set to bring in €40,379,600 from the total €850 million for the 2015-16 season. Newly promoted Darmstadt will receive the smallest amount of the top flight clubs with €20,189,800.

St. Pauli have put forth an interesting proposal, however. According to Kicker, the club have proposed to the DFB that the clubs that aren't complicit with the "50+1" ownership rule be banned from receiving any of the TV revenue. They explicitly name Bayer Leverkusen, Hoffenheim, and Wolfsburg who have all been granted exemptions by the DFB. Hannover were also named as Martin Kind is expected to take a controlling interest in 2017.

The four clubs have responded in kind stating that, if that motion were to pass, it would be the end of the "solidarity" split of TV revenue between the Bundesliga and 2.Bundesliga, according to DW. The Bundesliga clubs would cease allowing the second division clubs to receive as much of the TV revenue that they do.

Here is the revenue that the clubs will receive for the 2015-16 season.
