Non football costs?

Recommended Posts

The ingame tooltip states that non football costs refer to the wages paid out to non-football staff.

Who are these non football staff? It surely can't be my backroom staff because I've calculated 120k monthly tops for them in total, but the finances have reflected over 700k a month. Are these more ambiguous elements that we have little to no control of, but depends on the stature and status of our club, I'm guessing eg security, administration, groundskeepers, matchday managers and organisers, and such?

Im guessing its all them, the staff that work in the offices and the behind the scenes ones, I guess its almost impossible to bring this into the game as a manager wouldnt really employ receptionists and stuff so you have to live with it

Well you look at what any football club do for their fans that could fall under non football costs:

Charity events

TV programs / webcast

Website maintenance

Local out reach

Other staff salaries such as receptionists, garbage cleaner, someone to fix your training facility, someone to mow the lawn and trim the trees at your training center

Utilities

etc

Depending on the size of your club you'll have:

ground staff - stadium and pitch maintenance

kit staff

general office staff - admin/website etc

players canteen staff

commercial staff - from people who sell advertising to those who work in the club shop/sell match or lottery tickets etc

Bills

Bus driver or bus hire

Matchday hospitality waiting/bar staff

Pie shop staff

Programme sellers...

That's just off the top of my head - It all adds up!

Ground maintenance is already in another section of outgoings

Travel is already in another section too

A number of those would already be covered in matchday expenses

I would imagine big clubs would contract out catering and such, with a company paying to do business in the stadium

I'm Newcastle and in 2018 our non-football costs were 44 million pounds. We're at 41 million in April of 2019. I chalk it up to the hucksters in marketing.

It's also stuff any large business has like commercial insurance, gas, water, electric, the phone bill, food, laundry detergent, hotel rooms and travel expenses, expense accounts, office stationary...the cost of a screw to fix a loose seat in the east stand...literally EVERYTHING not directly related to the players on the pitch and the coaches that mange them. That can really start to add up for a large company with lots of employees.

I raised this way back before the last ME patch that fixed the tax issue. It's worrying to hear that it's still prevalent for the higher division clubs like Liverpool. Forty-four million a year in Non-football costs is a joke!!!
