Sponsors and the money they pay are one of the main sources of income for a Hattrick team. New teams rely more on sponsorship money than on ticket sales for matches, as their supporter base is rather small and takes up to a few seasons to reach an adequate level. Also the sponsors' mood is less prone to fluctuation than supporter mood.
The future income due to sponsorship money is updated on every single economy update. The sponsors' mood is updated at the same time.
If a team has more than 10 spokespersons the sponsors' mood can drop at each single daily update, including a special message for the manager in such cases.

|Both sponsors and fans control important sources of income. Therefore it is strongly advised to have a good relation with them and keep their mood up - it will pay off in the end.
Sponsors prefer supporting a club sporting a good "image" to which they can be connected. The more successful your team is and the bigger your team’s fan club is, the better image (and the more sponsor money) you’ll get. Spokespersons also help to improve the club's image. Your sponsors' mood can be seen on the finances page.

Influences on sponsors' mood
According to the manual, there are several factors influencing the mood of a team's sponsors and thus the amount of money it receives from them.
- The team's success over long term, meaning the current division;
- the team's success over short term, meaning how well it does in its current matches and
- the fan club's size.
Denomination of mood levels
