    Montreal $2,000,000 $ 5,000,000
    Washington $5,000,000 $13,500,000
    Florida $2,000,000 $ 6,500,000

    * Team’s maximum includes maximum Mountain Dew Award ($4,000,000), but endorsement could be achieved with a payout as low as $1,000,000.
    Note: Maximum does not include bonus amounts, but rather the standard payout for achieving the milestone. Bonus achievements would be above and beyond this total.

    These will be added to HFNHL team’s revenue in order to help provide extra income for rising salaries. There are four different types of endorsement deals teams can choose from. No team is obligated to enter into an endorsement deal, it is simply a way for each team to try and earn extra revenue.

    1. Broadcast Deals: will allow each team the opportunity to make extra money by signing a T.V. deal with a major network. Extra revenue from this source will depend upon the quality of their respective club and the fans desire to watch them play.
    2. Merchandise Deals: are run under a very simple principle. The better the team does, the more fans it attracts. The more fans a team attracts, the more merchandise a team will be able to sell.
    3. Team Endorsements: are available to all clubs willing to gamble on the team’s upcoming season. They can be thought of as “Corporate Sponsorships†in which a company aligns itself with a team for exposure to the hockey public. Certain companies want to be associated with certain types of teams and some have different expectations (and revenues) than others.
    4. Individual Endorsements: are essentially players endorsing specific products. The only difference between this and real life is the team gets the money not the player. Teams are rewarded for their player’s individual accomplishments. Individual performances only apply to players and prospects that are with your team for the entire season.

    Each team has the opportunity to enter into ONE Broadcast Deal, ONE Merchandise Deal, and any combination of TWO Team Endorsements or Individual Endorsements.

    Commitment and Risk
    To enter into an agreement you must make a commitment and pay the “Cost†fee before the start of the season. This money comes out of your team’s budget immediately. You may cancel your endorsement deal anytime BEFORE your 42nd regular season game is played, however you will only receive 50% of the “Cost†fee back. If you cancel an endorsement deal at any time during the season you CAN NOT sign the SAME deal again the following season. Please note any deals you participated in and cancelled last season, as there will be a penalty assessed if you attempt to sign a deal your team is not eligible for.

    So these deals are not without risks, as six teams last year actually lost money on their deals and it could happen again if GM’s don’t plan properly in anticipation of their team’s and players performances. The system is also designed so that the higher the risk, the higher the revenue.

    Submissions & Payout
    Each General Manager will be required to submit their Endorsement commitments before the regular season begins. At the end of the season, each General Manager who qualifies for any of their Endorsement Deals must submit a detailed account of which obligations were met, and the statistical proof of the achievement.

    Where can we find the up to date finance page? Has one been created since free agency? Maybe even an update on the rosters, cause I know mine is wrong.

    Just a suggestion, I was wondering if we could push the date back to Monday the 20th as it will be after the Waiver Draft. I think this would be beneficial as GM's would have a full understanding of what their team has going into the season.

    Billy

    P.S I am assuming that the waiver draft will be on Sunday

    D'oh! All this time I've been thinking I was down to $4 million in operating funds, and it turns out (and I've verified this against the August numbers) I had a little over $16 million in the bank...

    ... which means I DID have enough money for endorsement deals after all. Makes me wish I'd submitted some! :(
