2012/13 Endorsements - due Sunday January 20th

HFNHL Endorsements

These will be added to HFNHL teams’ 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. The deadline for submission of endorsements is Sunday, January 20th at 11:59 p.m. ET. Please post a response with the team name and the endorsement(s) you would like to participate in.

It doesn't take much time to go through and select your endorsements. Some of these are ridiculously easy to achieve, and are therefore really just an opportunity for free money for your team. In other words, there’s no good excuse not to participate if you have any cash balance at all.

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. Teams are limited to one Broadcast deal.

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” 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 CANNOT sign the SAME deal again the following season.***

Please note any deals you participated in and canceled 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: teams can lose money if they 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 return.

***For endorsements requiring a player or team to qualify in the top 5 in the league, ties for 5th will be accepted.***

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.
