Wembley stadium takes 50% and the rest does go to Burnley, the losers.

Don't know about now but when we played wolves it was split evenly, however united and wolves came to an agreement where the losers took the gate money from the play off.

It's not a rule as such, it's been a gentleman's agreement between the clubs for the last few years that the loser gets all of the gate money from the playoff final, as some sort of compensation for missing out on the Premiership cash.
