Match Mechanics[edit]

Football matches begin every 48th in-game Saturday, and take about 33 in-game days from start to finish. Your city will see increased traffic during matches, and each game earns the city money through ticket sales and prize winnings. Crime could potentially increase near the stadium during matches, which can be alleviated with the stadium-specific Match Security policy (see below).


The "Match Day" policies are accessed by clicking on the stadium, not from the normal policies window. Ticket prices may also be set there.

Come one come all.png Come One, Come All - Public transport is free on match days.

Match security.png Match Security - Hires security personnel to keep crime low around the stadium.

Subsidized youth.png Subsidized Youth - Spending money on training young players increases the odds of your team winning.


The match mechanics and policies only apply to the Stadiums in the "Football" tab of the "Unique Buildings" menu. This includes the stadiums from the "Stadiums: European Club Pack" DLC. They do not apply to the European Theme Unique Building Landmark "Sports Arena", or the Level 6 Unique Building "Stadium".
