Read this entire post. There is lots of other information after the stadium construction portion. In this post there is:

1 - Build your stadium in 3 GLB seasons
2 - Ticket pricing based on fan support and the greasemonkey script that helps you do it
3 - Media revenue by league
4 - Playoff ticket pricing for leagues below pro
5 - Concession pricing
6 - Promotions and salary



Here is how you go from purchasing a day 0 team to having a complete stadium after 3 GLB seasons, before you play a game in season 4

1.05x was the ticket multiplier used across the board in all seasons, so you should easily beat that and expand much if not all of your stadium by then as well

The ticket pricing based on fan support is further down in this post - use that to price tickets

Also assumes no playoff revenue of any kind

At any time after you have budgeted money for the next season's construction if there is $$$ available, expand seating. This typically happens after ticket sales begin prior to season 2 when you only have to finish off the 200 level the next off season.

use this firefox script if you aren't already

http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/484540 Ticket price assistant

season ticket discount should be set at zero

based on your fan support, these multipliers are a pretty good guide

recognize you can probably sell some tickets higher than this at the lower fan support, but you also need to sell enough volume to sell games out

DISCLAIMER - WHILE YOU SHOULD ALWAYS BE ABLE TO SELL TICKETS AT THESE PRICES, YOU NEED TO WATCH THE RATE OF SALES TO MAKE SURE YOU SELL OUT - ESPECIALLY AT LOWER LEVELS!


100/100/100 1.5x
100/99/98 1.49x
100/99/94 1.48x
99/97/93 1.48x
100/99/92 - 1.47x
100/99/89 1.47x
100/100/86 - 1.46x
100/96/84 1.45x
100/99/81 - 1.45x
99/97/81 - 1.44x
100/99/78 - 1.43x
100/96/73 - 1.43x
99/93/79 - 1.43x
100/99/64 1.4x
98/80/70 - 1.4
100/99/60 - 1.39x
100/99/55 - 1.38x
100/99/53 - 1.38x
100/77/54 1.37x
100/95/37 - 1.37x
100/83/46 - 1.36x
96/65/52 - 1.36x
80/80/70 - 1.35x (maybe a touch low)
87/53/42 - 1.35x
100/73/41 - 1.34x
100/75/36 - 1.34x
100/63/42 - 1.33x
100/71/33 - 1.33x
100/71/26 - 1.32x
100/50/40 - 1.31x
100/69/20 - 1.31x
70/60/50 - 1.31x
100/55/30 - 1.30x
100/46/20 - 1.30x
87/30/20 - 1.30x
92/33/10 - 1.27x
88/30/10 - 1.27 - but only at a trickle pace, so may want to go lower to sell out games
52/30/20 - 1.27x
50/30/20 1.27x
77/21/10 - 1.21x - club can go to approx 1.25x
63/20/10 - 1.19x - club can go to approx 1.25x

anything below this can sell at 1.18x but you may not sell enough to sell out - unless you re-set, you should not be down this low anyway

51/19/4 - 1.14x - club can go to approx 1.25x
42/21/11 - 1.14x - club can go to approx 1.25x
40/20/10 - 1.14x - club can go to approx 1.25x
39/1/1 - 1.14x - club can go to approx 1.25x
30/10/0 1.14x - club can go to approx 1.25x

as your fan support changes throughout the season, so should your prices

PS - in regional pro and above there are no playoff ticket sales

http://goallineblitz.com/game/announcement.pl?id=372 - playoff revenue info


DISCLAIMER - WHILE YOU SHOULD ALWAYS BE ABLE TO SELL TICKETS AT THESE PRICES, YOU NEED TO WATCH THE RATE OF SALES TO MAKE SURE YOU SELL OUT - ESPECIALLY AT LOWER LEVELS! YOU MIGHT BE BETTER OFF KEEPING PRICES AT THE REGULAR SEASON LEVEL TO SELL OUT ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE DONE WELL AND HAVE A LARGER STADIUM THAN THE AVERAGE TEAM


note the leagues higher up do not get playoff ticket sales

National Semi-Pro is the highest level league to now get playoff ticket sales

the info on ticket pricing above is based on regular season max, which is 150% - playoffs is 175%, so adjust up accordingly

if you are 100/100/100, go 1.75
if your multiplier below is 1.4 or more, add .2 for playoffs and you should be safe
adjust a little lower the farther down you go, but if you are a home playoff team in the regional leagues or below, your fan support likely isn't lower
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Concession pricing

concession pricing and ticket pricing should NEVER be below what using the auto-set gives you - I go 20% more than auto set for concessions and max for projected blowouts
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Promotions and salary

Season long promotions

Say $500K contracts for all (goes to $27,500,000 which is above the cap)

This gives +3.4 morale for each player (say 4 even)

everything above +4 would be a double hit for luxury tax

for $36M I get +15 for all road games (luxury transportation and lodging)
for $12.5M I get +10 for all home games and +5 fan support (1/2 time entertainment show)
for $8M more I can get +5 morale and +5 fan support low for nachos every home game

so for $54.5M I get +15 morale for all 16 regular season games and playoffs (nachos are free in the playoffs if at home) and fan support bonuses as well, +$7.5M for min salaries = $62M total

------------------------------
if you go $27M for salaries and get everyone +4 both home and away, you need to do the following for +15 across the board, home and away
away = +11 from +8 lodging and +3 transportation costs $26.4M
home = +11 from +5 for 8 nacho games ay $8M and the remaining +6 from cheerleaders costs $15.5M

total spent = $68.9M

doing even more from salaries will put you into luxury tax and cost you even more

the most cost effective way to do this is max home and road season long promotions and watch your pre-season games and see if any select players can use a contract boost

going over the salary cap is never the cost effective way to boost player morale (unless the team is folding after the current season or something)

when you budget for the following season's stadium section construction, if you have extra cash you put it towards seating

May be a stupid question, but...

Are the ticket multipliers you listed for what you get after hitting Auto-Set, or the Expecting Price.

Example: I hit Auto Set and it comes up 42.20 for 100 Level Sidelines. Do I take 1.08X that number? I have a 30/10/0


---


By the way, thank you very much for this. This helps a lot. Now I can worry about actually running team on the field.

1.08 is what you multiply the expected ticket price by

If you have greasemonkey, load that script and you can just type in 108 and update and it will change all ticket prices to that multiplier - much easier
