SM-Liig budgets for season 2010-2011

http://www.sm-liiga.fi/arkisto/uutis...n-kauteen.html

Behind the link is SM-liiga teams budgets shown on sm-liiga.fi

Few surprises is there. JYP and KalPa have made an awesome job and these two teams are now big clubs. And as you can see former "biggest team ever" Jokerit isn't so big anymore.

Interesting stuff

To parallel major league baseball in North America, TPS winning it all would be almost like the Royals or Pirates winning in baseball...While Jokerit would seem to be the Mets - spending a ton every year but having very little to show for it.

If I'm reading that graph correctly, the salary budgets in most clubs only account for less than 40 per cent of the club's total expenses? That seems strange. Kärpät for example, spend 2.8 million on salaries - and then another 4.9 million on what exactly?

How does it add up? Are those net salaries, and then the taxes are counted as part of the other expenses?

I'm not sure but that's possible. For example Kärpät have five guys (Viuhkola, Rosa, Kreps, Lehtonen, Preissing) that make 300-350k€ per season + a bunch of guys that make somewhere between 200-300k€ (Kuusela, Luomala, Sicak, Mikkola). Also Hedström, Koskenkorva and Kemppainen (some sources even say that he gets ~200k€??) that are coming close if not even earn 200k€. So basicly those 12 guys alone make around 3m€.

The salary budgets shown on the chart don’t include all the player expenses. I believe that some of the insurances, social security payments and the employer’s share of the pension payment are left out of the figure. Possible employee benefits like a car or an apartment are also left out.

Roughly a half of Kärpät’s budget goes to wages and payments for players and other personnel. Last season Kärpät had 58 employees on average. Roughly half of them were players, the other half consisted of office and restaurant workers, management, coaches, equipment managers, doctors and massage therapists.

The other half of the budget goes to:
- Depreciations of previous investments: Kärpät has built an office building, a practice rink and has renovated the city owned hockey arena.
- Travelling: Kärpät uses quite a lot of money on travelling compared to other SM-liiga teams. They fly to some games in Southern Finland and use hotels on a regular basis.
- Marketing expenses
- Rent for the hockey arena
- Various commodities: hockey equipment, office equipment, groceries…
- Outsourced services; ticket sales, fan product sales, attendants, lawyers, cleaning…
- … and dozens of other expenses (including paying off the refs )
