  • Each attribute has its own formula, but Popularity is the attribute that can vary the most. There are four main factors that influence the popularity of your team in your city: Performance of the team, players quality, individual trophies awards and the competition with other major sports. The sum of the four factors represents the evolution of the Popularity attribute.

For each combination of those two factors, a percentage is determined and displayed at the player page. Players retire after the playoffs, once you get to the off-season step.
