Free kick Posted January 28, 2007 Share Posted January 28, 2007 quote:Originally posted by L.T. I've heard the number 14,000 thrown around as a season ticket cap... That would suggest to me that this team will be around for a long while. It has far supassed my best case expactations. If you remove the number of roughly 2600 as a result of the David Beckham spike. And, let's assume that there are about 10-20% who are very fairweather and fickle who dont renew after the first season, You would still have a very solid base to operate profitably. if you do the match, 14K averages very roughly to approximately 5Mill$ in revenues. The cap is only 2.1Mill$. We haven't even started talking about other ancillary revenues. As I always said, all you you need to make pro soccer worthwhile is a 5,000 seasons tickets base. Secondly, By the sounds of it, the $$$ netted BMO for the naming rights may have covered MLSEL investment in the stadium as well as the exapnsion fee. What this all means is that they are operating at level way above the league since the cap is at only 2.1Mill$. To sustain themselves they would require an increase in cap amount.
