Do finances have anything to do with crowds in matches?

Attendance from league and Cup matches contribute gate revenue.

Attendance is determined by the number of supporters and their mood from both teams, the match type and the weather.

That I get. But would our finances affect the attendances in any way? My club has been performing reasonably well, yet the attendance has been well below the mark and the only thing is my finances have been in the negative since the week start, which makes it all the more reason to worry :cry:

No. Your finances do not affect attendances.

What do:

Match type: SOD/T20 > YOD
Supporter moods: Both teams' supporter moods contribute to attendances

Keep in mind that your team is still brand new and that you have not sold out SOD matches in your 5,000 seat stadium yet, so your gate earnings in general is still very low.

At this point in time for you it is about living below the breadline and to not spend too much money buying players that are too strong and expensive for what you need.

If you start consistently selling out your stadium in a couple of matches in a row then upgrade it by a couple of thousand seats.

I understand, I only expected attendances this week as-
  • a. My supporter mood had grown to buoyant
    b. My finances had gone red due to expenditure on the YA
But, my away T20 attracted only 3.3k crowd, the only reason I see is that it's a bot. But then again, they were pulling 5k+ in T20 home games till their game against me.
Again, my home YOD could get only 2.3k spectators, while both the teams were having a 4/1 W/L count and I had pulled as many as close to 4.5k in a previous home game, when my supporter mood was default (jovial). Although that was against the table leaders. Still it seemed to be lower than the anticipated lowest attendance, hence, the question.

The home team supporters have a greater effect on attendances then the away team
Weather can vary the attendance by as much as 20% too
Without looking at the matches that could have been a big reason too

Your opponent plays a big part in your attendance. I still don't know the exact variable as it is a closely guarded secret for some reason around here, but I believe it is up to around 40% of the attendance that comes from the visiting team.

Hot and overcast weather cause lower attendance while sunny and cloudy contribute better attendance.

YOD matches have half the attendance of SOD and T20 matches in general.

The duration that your opponent has been around to gain supporters combined with their mood is the main factor in attendance.

Also the position of your team plays a big role.
Example:
Your team is nr2. If you play nr8, the crowd will be much smaller than when you play nr1. Ofcourse the number of supporters plays a role. But also at which level your team plays in the league.

Training speed and academies:

Is the only way to improve training spending on academies? How much of a difference do they make?

Does the quality of the YA improve the quality of young players you recruit? How soon does it make a difference?

Yes it’s the only way to increase training speed.
It’s roughly 3% difference per academy level per week. It also makes a very small difference in youth recruits.
