Not sure about preseason, but I do know 40% of all ticket sales go to the league each week to be distributed among all visiting teams. That's one of the things that got Washington in trouble. They were shortchanging the 40% sent to the league.

With the way the NFL is structured there is no 1 revenue nor is there one beneficiary of any revenue stream.

Ticket sales 60/40 split with the 40% going to the club.
League Revenue (licensing and media) is also split and heavily favors the league.
Players get the revenue from the jersey sales with 2/3 being direct and 1/3 going to the NFLPA to pool for all players.


What gets glossed over is that by design there is no true separation between the team and the league. Gayle Benson is both a team and league owner and she receives compensation from both. The NFL was not born out of sport, it was/is the brainchild of a group of businessmen that saw a cash cow.

We like to think that Roger Goodell hates the New Orleans Saints but the owner of the New Orleans Saints is one of Roger Goodell's bosses as he has to answer to the board which is the 32 owners. Its like politics and the Wizzard of Oz, what you are intended to see and what goes on are different.

I think this answers the question about both preseason and regular season ticket revenue and sharing. There is a 60/40 split with the 40% (less expenses) going to the league office to be shared evenly with visiting teams.

Article XIX 19.1 (A) Page 96

The home club shall deliver to the League office the greater of $30,000 for each regular season or preseason game, or 40% of gross receipts after the following deductions:
