Hello, I'm currently playing with Darlington, and have them in the Premier League. I have 17 coaches, 4 physios, and 16 scouts. I have asked the board for staff increases, which they have granted. However, my number of allowed staff has not increased, so I cannot hire new staff.

I thought it could be correlated with quality of facilites, but I used FMRTE to increase my facilities to excellent/state of the art, and then received approval fro staff increases. I simulated the season for 3 months, and allowed staff still did not increase.

Have I reached the maximum allowable number of staff members?

Thanks for the replies -

Raikan007 - My coaches are allocated as: 1 Asst Mgr, 6 Coaches, 2 Gk Coaches, 3 First Team Coaches, 3 Youth Coaches, and 2 Fitness Coaches. These are the exact number that the board has allocated to me, but I did at one time have 8 coaches, and 2 each First Team and youth coaches. As long as you don't go over the limit, I guess you can allocate them as you see fit.

Superbladseman - currently, my wage budget is at $475,000, but am only spending $375,000. You are right in that I don't really need more coaches, as I do have one specialist for each category for maximum ratings, then fill out my staff with low-priced coaches and assign them to all categories.

On a side note, I am pulling in amount $4 million per month profit, as I schedule away friendlies with my first team as much as possible with Australian sides - that gives me $275K - $325K per game. This amount does go up as your team reputation increases, as the range was $250K - $300K before I qualified for the EURO Cup. I only mention this in case you may have thought that my staff wouldn't go up if I was losing money.

I'll post my question here as it's easier to do so and i as i couldn't find any other topic quickly enough about this matter:

I have the same problem, only my max coaches is 11. Is this some kind of bug?
Currently with Ajax, first season.

UPDATE: I just finished my 2016 season with Darlington, and finished 4th in Premier League. When the 2016-17 schedule was announced in late June, I noticed my staff allotment was increased by 5, and scouting by 3. I now have 22 coaches and 19 scouts, which is good since I can now sign foreign coaches who speak Portuguese , Spanish, etc., to help with my new signees.

I think the staffing increases may be realted to one or a combination of these factors: the relative success of your club, or to a lesser extent your financial situation and ability to upgrade facilities, though I can't seem to find the logic behind my theories.

I qualified for Euro Cup in 2015, but staff did not increase; I qualified for ECC this year, and staff increased.

I've upgraded facilities in the past without getting a staff increase.

It seems the timing is a bit unpredictable with the board granting staff increases, but I would just try to be patient, keep asking for increases when you get the chance, and I believe that continued success with your club would most likely lead to eventual staff increases, even if it seems that you have to wait 2 years after board approval to see your allotment increase.

I'm not sure if this is a bug, but I also just loaded the 11.3 patch before I finished my 2016 season, so perhaps it was something addressed in the latest patch.

Staff Quota

Hi guys

Im playing as Leeds and in 2020 season. Ive looked everywhere for an explanation but can't seem to figure this out. I can't seem to get around the staff allocation...

I am not exceeding any of my restrictions in terms of how many staff I should have in certain roles, and I am also allowed to have 9 scouts. Currently, I have only got 3 and for some reason I am not able to hire any more.

Can you guys shed any light on how I can get around this?

Thanks...
