    The main purpose of parachute payments is to fund or pay off players contracts that are still at Premier levels, after a side has been relegated. Fairer distribution of television rights would help balance the inequalities,but it is very unlikely that those currently benefitting would agree to lose income. One solution could be to stipulate at least 30% of the televised packages must be awarded to free to air television networks. This would help stop the ballooning of funding for Premier clubs and ensure all football fans get the opportunity to see live Premier games without paying a subscription.
