Game Rules


Updated: 2016-09-01 09:21

When you first start playing liveHockey you will get an arena with a capacity of 5000 seats (long side 3500 and the short side of 1500). When your team starts filling the arena with spectators it might be time to expand to a bigger arena.

It is important that you carefully plan the size of your arena in order to get as much income as possible. If your arena is too large your rental costs will be too high in relation to the income received from paying spectators. With any adjustment on your arena's size you will be required to pay a base fee, plus changing/building/demolition fee.


Your arena must have certain predetermined proportions. Below you will find the limits for each section.

Shortside: 1 500 - 40 000 seats, least 25% max 50% of the total capacity of your arena.
Longside: 3 500 - 85 000 seats, least 35% max 75% of the total capacity of your arena.
VIP: 0 - 8 000 seats, max 15% of the total capacity of your arena.

The division of your arena when you receive it is 30/70/0 (%).

Public Revenue/Income

Public revenue or income is the team's main source of income and therefore it is very important that your arena is optimized for maximum revenue in proportion to the rent. Revenue is based on which division you are in, meaning that placing in a higher division will garner more income to your team than in a lower division. Below you will find the breakdown by division.
