Re: franchise re-branding and stadium choice

I decided to test the rumor about attendance impacting revenue in franchise mode.

Here's what I did. I started two franchises - Marlins and Yankees. I played a full month in each franchise. One month I used a minor league park with <10k capacity and then I replayed the same month with the team's actual ball park. I used manage mode and I played one pitch and then fast forwarded to the end of the game. I played one pitch because you have to do that to get an attendance in the game log. If you simply sim the entire game there is no attendance listed at least none I can find.

At the end of the Marlins month with the small ballpark with attendance of less than 9,000 per game they had $3.5 million in revenue. At the end of the month with the real ballpark with attendance of more than 20,000 per game they had $3.3 million in revenue.

In the Yankees franchise at the end of the small ballpark month they have revenue of $9.8 million. At the end of the month in Yankee Stadium revenue was the same at $9.8 million.

I simmed a month from the calendar and revenue was slightly less at $9.7 million.

If someone can find fault with how I tested I'd welcome that input but based upon this test it appears attendance does not impact revenue. That being the case I see no downside to using a minor league ballpark or classic ballpark with smaller capacity if that is what you choose.

Re: franchise re-branding and stadium choice

I wonder if attendance and revenue is more tied to win/ loss record rather than ballpark. The better the record the better the revenue?

Re: franchise re-branding and stadium choice

Excellent job man. It sounds like the dynamic budget results from performance and attendance (as we figured) is just visual.

It should be safe to assume now we can use the minor league parks without issue.

It's possible % of capacity - which is listed alongside turnstile - is a factor. Size of the stadium wouldn't matter for % of capacity.

I'm going to play the remainder of my current season in various milb parks to decide which one I will use.

Probably when the whole ticket prices went away
