The stadium

Your club will start off with a small stadium, which you can improve throughout your Hattrick career. On the stadium page you can see and manage all details about your stadium.

Income and costs

Your stadium can have four different types of seats, each having their own ticket prices and weekly upkeep costs (which you always have to pay).

  Income Weekly cost
Bleachers 7 US$ 0.5 US$
Regular seats 10 US$ 0.7 US$
Seats under roof 19 US$ 1 US$
Seats in VIP lounge 35 US$ 2.5 US$

In the match reports from home games, you can see how many tickets were sold of each type. The income from matches is distributed differently between clubs depending on what type of match it is:

League matches: The home team takes all the income.

Cup matches: The home team takes 67% of the income and away team gets 33%, except for the last six rounds, which are played at neutral venues and where income is split evenly.

Friendlies and qualifiers: Income is split evenly.

Your crowd appearance

The attendance at your stadium largely depends on your fans. Your fans' mood and the size of your fan club are the most important crowd factors. Your current position in your series, and the difference between your position and your opponent's position are also important (for series matches).

To some extent the size and mood of your opponents' fan club matters, as some of them might like to come too. It's also worth knowing that people get more interested in going to matches as the season progresses. You will, in general, get bigger crowds at the end of the season than at the beginning.

Naturally, the weather also matters. Fewer fans will visit your stadium in bad weather, but those who come will be more interested in buying more expensive tickets to sit under a roof. It is therefore possible that your total income could be about the same in any weather, as long as there are enough appropriate seats.

Improving the stadium

To expand your stadium, you hire a construction company to add seats. It can take a week or more, depending on the amount of construction needed. All existing seats stay available during the construction period. You pay a set price of 10 000 US$ each time you change your capacity, along with a cost for each seat you want to add or remove:
  Construction cost Demolition cost
Bleachers 45 US$ 6 US$
Regular seats 75 US$ 6 US$
Seats under roof 90 US$ 6 US$
Seats in VIP lounge 300 US$ 6 US$

It's a good idea to offer a mix of different types of seats to your fans. Most people want to buy tickets for the bleachers, therefore these should be the largest in number among your seat types. Some people only attend matches if they can have comfortable seats (and some will also demand a roof over their heads), so you should have quite a lot of those too. There is also a wealthy group of attendees who only want to sit in fancy VIP lounges. There aren't many of them, but you don't want to forget about them either. Seats under a roof and in VIP lounges aren't affected as much by bad weather as the other types.
