The month-long row over TV rights for Serie A next season has reached a conclusion.

The announcement came after the meeting in Milan tonight. It is understood that the five 'big' clubs (Juventus, Milan, Inter, Roma and Napoli) will relinquish a part of their share to the the rest of the league's teams.

There was a unanimous agreement over three points. Firstly 40% of the total revenue of 197 million Euros will be equally divided between all 20 teams.

Secondly 30% will be divided on the basis of fan base size.

Finally the remaining 30% will be split on sporting merit rated over a number of years, by judging on the teams performance in the league.

Lazio have the 6th biggest fan base in Italy and therefore were considered the smallest of the 'big' teams and the biggest of the 'smaller' teams, so it was believed Lotito held the prime position for negotiation and was instrumental in the new shake-up.
