    Default Commercial Feeder Club Returns

    Sorry if this has been covered, I did do a search prior to starting a new thread.

    I was wondering what the revenue figures for commercial feeder clubs are? Since the annual fee is often 500k or more, what sort of returns do you get? I would presume it is somewhere in the region of 2x - 3x that figure?

    Hmm well to answer my own question my merchendising pre-commercial link was 2.8m for the season. Post link it was boosted to 3.8m. So for my 500k, I earned ~500k profit. Not bad.

    Yeah, a good commercial link can be of a decent financial benefit.

    Do you know if there's a limit on the number of commercial links a club can have? Is it tied in to rep possibly? I mean, on its own spending 500k to make 1m seems so-so but if you had 5 commercial links, then it would actually surpass my current sponsorship deal ..!

    I don't know for sure, but I don't think you can amass very many. Maybe a couple.

    Hmm cool. We're only just a continental rep. club so 500k might be 1m if we were more successful .. and 2m a year for absolutely nothing can't be sneezed at.

    My merchandising has gone from $2 mil to $5 mil over 3 season in premier league during which i have signed 2 commercial links (North America and China) for total of $3.5 mil plus 1 player that boosted shirt sales.

    So seems like i am loosing money here

    Quick question here.

    I've been offered five American clubs to link with. They cost from £500K-£3.5M, I don't have much interest in American teams and I don't have the MLS loaded, so I can't tell which team are more reputable.

    Would a higher annual payment tend to result in a bigger merchandising income boost?

    It usually seemed to work that way in the recent FM games, yes.

    The most i've had with Man United was two, one from asia one from america. That was pre patch and a long time ago though, since then i've given up on managing big clubs..
