Club Insights - Football Manager 2024 Sugar Daddy Clubs

This is the complete list of all active rich benefactor clubs in Football Manager 2024. In previous FM versions, the term used was sugar daddy instead of rich benefactor.

Rich Benefactor refers to the club's chairperson. Clubs with such rich chairpersons (formerly 'chairmen') at the helm stand a much better chance of receiving budget injections from time to time, depending on the occasion.

Date of first publication: 9 November 2023

A Rich Benefactor chairperson doesn't guarantee that you'll always have ridiculous amounts of money to spend on transfers. You might as well manage a rich benefactor club and get close to zero transfer budget. However, they will supply more money than the average chairperson if needed or to reward your good performance.

Club reputation gets a boost as well, so you might find less players wanting to leave for a bigger club. However, this has a bigger effect when smaller teams get tycoon takeovers in-game so they can attract the players to spend their money on.

Rich Benefactor Types

There are 4 types of rich benefactor chairpersons, as explained below.

Foreground - Will throw money at the club to spend until he leaves.
Background - Will spend enough to make them a force in their current league but if they go up a level or two it would no longer apply.
Underwriter - Won't give you any extra transfer budget but come the end of the season they will always cover any loss the club is making and not expect the money back.
Underwriter (Expects Returns) - Similar to "Underwriter" but expects the money back.

For example, if you spent the entire transfer budget at R. Madrid (no sugar daddy) you'd have to re-earn it, but if you do the same at PSG (foreground sugar daddy) the chairman will just pump more money into the club.

Bankruptcy for rich benefactor clubs is highly unlikely. But don't go overboard with your expenses. Bad financial management can lead to severe debt situation for your club, which could result in going into administration. And there's always the possibility for the rich benefactor chairman leaving the club.
