Attendance data and optimum stadium size

The optimum stadium distribution has changed with the recent changes and is now highly dependent on the fan mood. I.e. a stadium should be build taking into account a personal estimate of the average expected fan mood.

Below the recommended stadium size per fan is sketched. These optimum values have been calculated on basis of more than 600 league matches. The values have been derived ensuring that the last build seat will be sold at a probability making it just profitable.
