Does anyone know why I did this in SS1? Did I ever give a reason? If not, should it be that way, or shouldn't executive box receipts be split partially to the away side along with all of the other match income?

Home teams keep all gate receipts, boxes included, in real league (not cup) football so I would say the question should be why does the away team get anything :P :wink:

No reason away teams should see a penny of executive boxes as they don't pay upkeep on them etc and executive boxes are paid for in advance so "away fans" wouldn't be using them in theory anyway.

Do away fans get to use executive boxes in real life? Just out of interest really, I take the point about the maintenance etc. But in real life, maybe the home team can't fill all of the boxes and allow away executives to use them? Mind you, in SS, that would really overcomplicate things, so as I say, it's more a matter of interest.

Yep, clubs will take anyone's money for executive boxes, just as long as certain standards are met (away colours are allowed at many clubs, depends on the level of the club and their history of trouble etc).

So basically I can keep this the same as SS1, i.e the home team keeps all exec box revenue? Hmm, what happens in cup matches, is it split?

I'm aware that exec boxes are quite badly designed in SS1 but at the same time, people use them in a certain way to generate income which I don't think is bad or unfair, nor an exploit. So I don't mind them as they are, they're just a bit.... strange.

Cup match revenue is split 3 ways, third to the comp organisers and a third to each club.

Nothing weird about executive boxes really, just another way of clubs making money, in this instance by offering a "better" experience at games (no different from cinema's offering luxury seats at higher prices for comparison).
