On fm12 I managed to get a new stadium with ease after winning the champions league and the league consistently. Im playing with FC Porto I sell out my home ground every game, which is just over 51,000, I also have over 100 million in the bank, but the board just turn me down every time I ask. I'm in 2018 and a legend at the club if that makes a difference.

The board believes that the economic potential isn't high enough. Let's say that you build a new stadium with 60.000 capacity but only fill out 53.000 places. The money aren't earned in. Wait a few years and further increase your reputation and get Chinese, American or Japanese feeder clubs to increase rep and merchandise.

Yeah, I need to get a 60/70k stadium in order to balance the books, all the money I make is by selling my best players each year for huge money

population is a major factor you got to take into account, being in a country with a low population will decrease the chance to get a new stadium, look at Brazil it's got a massive population and there clubs have a very good stadium capacity and i don't think Portugal has a high population compare to other country's.

10.77 million people currently in Portugal, do you know if the population ever grows/decreases in game?
