# Spokesperson

INTERWIKI

Spokesperson is a specialist who works as the club's ambassador. He improves mood of Sponsors, and, to a much smaller degree, mood of fans, thereby resulting in an increase in fan club size and sponsor income.

Skill Level Fan mood Sponsors Cost/week
- No bonus No bonus 0 €
+0.1 +0.5 1 500 €
+0.2 +1 3 000 €
+0.3 +1.5 6 000 €
+0.4 +2 12 000 €
+0.5 +2.5 24 000 €

If your team is performing very poorly, a spokesperson can only help you to reduce the decreases in fan club size and sponsor income.

#### Spokesperson Theories

The following contents are based on experience and/or research conducted by Hattrick users — which means that their veracity and accuracy have not been confirmed by any official statement, and consequently they do not necessarily reflect the game reality. Please take this into consideration!

Spokesperson works on sponsors mood, helping with half a level in sponsors mood for each spokesperson's level. The marker raises very quickly week after week, with a gross growth (multiplied by the spokesperson level) of 0.33 for the first week and 0.15 for the second. This means that, based upon season, we can deduce an average advantage of 0.48 per week.

Remember that the sponsor's revenue calculation formula is:

```Revenue =  27 200 € + variable * 185
```

where variable is the rounded value of

```fanclub members * sponsors mood / square [series number] * 14.85
```
Note that sponsors mood is a decimal number, even if we can see only the integer.

Putting together the data, we can now calculte the number of fans needed per series to cover the costs of a better spokesperson with a higher sponsors revenue (not considering at all the arena revenues).

Note that the level 1 spokesperson is NEVER profitable. So the advice is to get at least level 2 or none is better.

In table below, fanclub size nedeed to cover spokespersons cost (by series):

Spokesperson level
2 3 4 5
Series 8 709 1 419 2 838 5 676
Series 7 664 1 327 2 655 5 309
Series 6 614 1 229 2 458 4 916
Series 5 561 1 122 2 244 4 487
Series 4 502 1 003 2 007 4 014
Series 3 434 869 1 738 3 476
Series 2 355 709 1 419 2 838
Series 1 251 502 1 003 2 007

How to read the table: A club with 2 700 fans in series 4 can hire a level 5 spokesperson, but is less profitable that a level 4. Anyway a level 3 is not the right choice! Why? Because we can easly calculate the money loss with a too low level of spèokesperson or with no spokesperson at all (maybe reserving slot to other staff).

After identifying the optimal level, use this formula:

```Missed weekly money = [0.48 * Spokesperson level * fanclub number * 185 / square [series number] * 14.85 ] - spokesperson wage
```

Example: following the model of the series 4 team with 2 700 fans, using no spokesperson the money lost is 19 000 € per week (31k minus 12k for a level 4 spokesperson's wage). It's 300 000 € per season only from sponsors and not considering stadium collect!
