Your team will lose money early in the season.
Set your ticket prices depending on the level of the game.
6/10 or higher, you can set them high, otherwise lower it.
Try to buy seats first and stores for food and souveniers. Dont buy any celebration stuff until you buy all that stuff. I wouldn't go crazy trading right away. You make most of your money in the 2nd half and lots in the playoffs.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

1 - 4/10 games use $40/$25/$30 for ticket prices
5/10 - default
6/10 - about $60/$35/$45

Check to see what % your sales for food/merchandise is at. If low, then lower the price

That's what you get for trying to turn the Rockies around...


After about 5 years, with the Yankees, I bought every possible item, and the stadium becomes absolutely beastly. You need to buy the first seating upgrade with your first 5 million and use the rest of the money to get food and souveniers.

You'll still lose money but if you keep tabs on your profits, you should spend any money you get as quickly as possible. If you get 500,000 then buy some venders, even though that puts you back at 0.

Any positive money you have, spend. Then jack up your prices in the playoffs and you can save up fast.

You also don't lose any money in the playoffs, even if you're away. So you can start the playoffs with -2 million and if you make it all the way to the World Series, playing a bunch of home games, you can get yourself up to around +15 million or more.

Then you buy more seating. The more seating you have, the more money you get. Anyway, good luck.

That sounds a little too complicated for me. :-S I don't really want to have to have an accounting degree to play a video game. I think I'll be sticking to the regular franchise mode thank you. :-b
