Does anyone here know how much it would cost to run a gaming house on a monthly basis?
I have already read some threads and articles about this and the estimations vary. I am curious if someone here lives/knows someone who lives in a gaming house and could help me out with some numbers.
My main interest would be knowing the following:
- How much do players earn per month? Is it a salary or does the player get tournament earnings?
- Based on the location, rent can vary, but what would be a rough estimate for 8-10 players in the Euro zone? What would be necessary to have in the house? I know you need basic furniture and equipment to practice on, but would there be anything else needed?
- How do you get companies to sponsor a new gaming house? Of course it's all about the publicity a sponsor would get and so on, but how complicated is this process of getting them interested in the first place? Do you think it would be extremely difficult to get a sponsor? If so, why or why not.
I know some questions might seem fairly dumb, but humor me and reply with something worthwhile if you have the time. And yes, I would like to start such a gaming house, but I need some basic knowledge first and maybe even some tips if possible from people who have already been through this. I am a manager by trade and a very enthusiastic gamer. I would not want to be part of the gaming house as a player, rather the manager.
Thanks in advance
