 How Hamilton Survive

From the article Hamilton have only around 300 season ticket holders.
They didn't take any season ticket money as they didn't expect fans to be in this season ,and would have to return the season money if no fans were allowed in.
They get more revenue from various charities than they do from season tickets .
They also have links through charities to the local community .

Did they ever get back any of the large sum of money that they were scammed out of ?

Interesting article.

It shows how important "non-football" activity in the community can be to a football club, and why if it is done properly it is financially beneficial (as well as being morally the right thing to do).

Perhaps they take in more televised money from away fans than home fans.

Saw their commentator got in trouble for forgetting to mute his mic when announcing he was away for a jobby 😂

4.6m revenue! From a club with very little fans. The premiership prize money will account for at bets 1,75m of that(over a million more than a top performing championship club receives) but even with that there’s a gap between what they taking in compared to clubs like ourselves. They claim commercials success, yet they haven’t suddenly got big brands on board, they seem to make significantly more from the local businesses than everyone else in Scotland. Maybe they are genius in which case why haven’t they moved on to other sides, maybe not all income is legitimate as has been hinted at in the past.

Nothing dodgy at Hamilton. The directors own and run a number of highly successful car washes and fried chicken restaurants.

Quite honestly, I couldn`t make head nor tail of that story. It went round in circles and told us nothing really. The only thing I drew from it was that the director`s comments appear to have been prompted by some disgruntled fans on the internet.
