Own a Sports Team

This doesn’t necessarily have to be very fleshed out. Heres how I could imagine it:

  • Make a small 10-12 team league of any sport (Baseball, Basketball, and Football are most popular in NY)
  • Teams should be valued at around 1-5 billion, and have stats such as “Championships Won” and “Last Years Record” and “Team Strength” Higher the strength, better the record
  • Add a slider for money invested to the team, more money invested means higher team strength
  • Add a slider for ticket sales, and add a average ticket price value, much like real estate
  • Make random events such as “Viral Play” or “Winning the championship” and add a temporary revenue boost to that

Typing this out sounds like a lot but I believe the mechanics are already involved in the game, and it doesn’t need to become a sport manager game, just a separate part of revenue that can add spark and a new piece of life into the game that no other game can really offer in this setting.

Hey! Thanks for the idea!

Overall I like the idea. Especially as it is quite common for tycoon and entrepreneurs to own sports teams.

However it’s a bit too niche/narrow to defend the development costs. Far from all players will find sports related stuff interesting.

That being said, if we can combine this feature with other areas (not just sports teams), it might become reality. As long as we can use the same mechanics for all (labels can change).

If anyone got ideas on how we can expand this beyond sports team, please feel free to share!

I think a way to expand it more generally would be to add the ability to purchase ‘events centers’ like theatre’s on broadway or stadiums for teams/concerts. Theatre’s can be home to productions and plays, can utilize the same type of mechanic I listed above for ticket prices and even the same type of ‘investment’ mechanic where more money put in means more turnout. Even smaller places like comedy clubs could be a more low tier, less costly, way to dip the players toes into purchasing these ‘events centers’! :grinning:

I like the idea of running a theater/club/etc, but I think that could be a whole job where you hire the people, schedule them to perform for the week, etc:
