Introduction
Jose Rivaldo the general manager of the Craddock Youth Soccer League (CYSL) is committed to providing high quality soccer activities to youth in his surrounding area. Not only is he the manager of CYSL, but he is heavily involved with the planning of a regional soccer tournament called, The Craddock Cup. The tournament usually attracts 32 premier girls and boys soccer teams. Although players and their families have considered the tournament a great success, Rivaldo believes the tournament is beginning to lose money.
Issues
As a consultant after reviewing the estimates and preparing the outcomes of the different events that the board has mentioned, here are the issues that need to be analyzed. 1. Recalculation of allocated over-head expense that is directed towards the Craddock Cup. 2. Calculation of the expected financial impact of adding 32 more teams to the tournament. 3. Determining the break-even amount for registration fees that would have to be charged for the increase in teams, advertising expense, college recruiters and face books.
Issue #1
In determining whether or not to keep the Craddock Cup, I have reviewed the profit statement that you have constructed and have found a few discrepancies that I would like to bring to your attention. The first of which is the expense allocation of the City field rental from CYSL to the Craddock cup of $1,200. This allocation should be eliminated. CYSL rents 10 soccer fields from the city for 40 weeks a year for a total fee of $48,000. Although the Cup requires the use of the fields for one week during the year, the $48,000 total cannot be avoided if the Cup no longer…...

...Memorandum Literature Review: Before a recommendation can be made, it is important to understand the different factors that play a role in your situation. One of the first aspects we analyzed was cost behavior, which is how a specific cost reacts to change in activity levels. We also accounted for relevant costs.  These costs eliminate any unnecessary data that has the potential to complicate the decision-making process for management. Data Analysis: Craddock Cup generates total revenue of $49,840 for 32 teams from registration fees, T-shirts, concessions, soccer clinic, and contributions. It is currently incurring a total expense of $53,538. However, the total irrelevant cost of $3,400 decreases the total expense, which includes the city field rental for $1,200 Rivaldo’s salary of $6,300, and rent expense of $2,700, these costs will be incurred whether CYSL drops or keeps the Craddock cup. As a result, Craddock Cup generates an incremental profit of $6,502. Craddock Cup will generate an additional $10,132 by adding 32 more teams to the tournament. Most sources of revenues will double except for contributions for a total of $85,680. Relevant expenses such as registration with state YSL, hotels, face book, marketing and advertising, and salary remain unchanged. These costs remain unchanged due to recruiters’ interest in only High School teams, and no further plans for marketing and advertising, and no salary increase. However, relevant variable expenses double as...

World Cup

...The Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup bid is the successful proposal from the government of Qatar to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Qatar, with a population of 1.69 million people, will be the first Arab state to host the World Cup.[1] Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani, son of the present Emir of Qatar, was the chairman of the bid committee.[2] Qatar promoted their hosting of the tournament as representing the Arab World, and has drawn support from across the member states of the Arab League. They also positioned their bid as an opportunity to bridge the gap between the Arab World and the West.[3] Qatar gave a feel of what the World Cup would be like by holding a friendly match between Brazil and Argentina.[4] Furthermore, people coming from different nations visited Qatar for this match and strengthened the image Qatar would depict of their interest in the World Cup 2022. Additionally, Qatar hosted the 2011 Asian Cup which had the lowest attendance for the cup in 11 years, since the tournament was held in Lebanon[citation needed]. It was considered a warm-up for 2022. President of FIFA Sepp Blatter endorsed the idea of having a World Cup in the Arab World, saying in April 2010, "The Arabic world deserves a World Cup. They have 22 countries and have not had any opportunity to organize the tournament." Blatter also praised Qatar's progress, "When I was first in Qatar there were 400,000 people here and now there are 1.6 million. In terms of infrastructure, when you......

Cup Corporation

...Case Assignment Name : Muhammad Kamil 12/341277/PEK/17366 Class : International Class, Batch 60 Chapter 11 Case 11-3. CUP Corporation Case Overview CUP was one of the largest insurance firms based in Europe. They enjoyed growth rate of more than 25% each year for almost past 10 years. They sold various forms of insurance in order to broaden the type of the insurance into health, life, casualty, property, and automotive areas. However, the growth was flat instead of the planned 3 percent by 1996 and 1997. The declining growth rate resulted from several issues, economic climate, higher taxes and social welfare levies, increasing competition, extensive satisfaction of the basic demand for insurance in Germany. In 1996, the number of customer canceling contracts compared to the total amount of contracts, called “lapse rate”, reached DM 900M which is 10% of total premium revenue. They are having customer loyalty problem that has to be solved. One of the issue here is the establishment of CCC (Customer Care Center). This CCC enables the company to provide customer with one telephone number that will answer all of customer questions due to their contract. They need to professionally train people who could effectively answer a variety of questions and increase the service dramatically. The final objective would be to reduce the lapse rate. The “lapse rate” problem for CUP was summarized by the image of leaking bucket, new customers would flow into the bucket while at the same time......

Craddock Cups

...CRADDOCK CUP Laura Regus THE CRADDOCK CUP Mr. Rivaldo: Upon review of the allocations, we have determined that the salary (J. Rivaldo), rent and utilities allocations to the Craddock Cup are irrelevant, as these are sunk costs that will be inquired despite of the tournament. Also, we have noted that the “city field rental” expense should be eliminated, as this is an irrelevant cost that CYSL cannot avoid by cancelling the tournament. Subtracting these costs lets CYSL generate a profit of $6,502.00 (Exhibit 2A). Therefore we recommend that the Craddock Cup be continued. By expanding the tournament to include 32 more teams, CYSL will see an increase in their profits of $2,572 (Exhibit 3A). In order to breakeven with the increases in marketing and advertising, college recruiters and 20 additional face books, the new registration fee should be $350.00 per team. Recommendations Our recommendations upon reviewing the information provided will consist in ways of maximizing your potential profit. First, we recommend that the Craddock Cup is continued and also that you expand to include the additional 32 teams. By doing this, you will be generating a profit of $9,074.00, which will allow you to fund the field-acquisition program and still have spare income. Second, we suggest that you increase the markup of the concessions to 115 percent, which will generate an additional $1,296.00 in revenue. This will not be a dramatic increase for the participants of the tournament, so...

The Craddock Cup

...June 26, 2013 THE CRADDOCK CUP Maggie Leddy Northeastern University College of Business Administration Financial Reporting and Managerial Decision-Making ACC6200 – M/W 7:30 – 9:30 --- 470 DG After careful consideration and analysis of this case, I have determined that there is a way for the Craddock Cup to generate enough money annually for the Craddock Youth Soccer League to reach their field-acquisition goal. The first step would be to revise the overhead-expense allocations. Because Rivaldo is employed by CYSL full-time with a fixed salary, it would be benefitial for the tournament if none of it is allocated to the Craddock Cup. This is also true for the Rent and utilities. The league will be renting 10 soccer fields from the city for 40 weeks regardless of whether or not the tournament occurs so there none of those expenses need to be allocated to the Craddock Cup. 100% of Renee Jansten’s salary will continue to be allocated to the Craddock Cup. With the revised overhead-expense allocations, the Craddock Cup will be able to generate a profit of about $5,302 a year if all other expenses and revenues remain stable. (Exhibit 1). I have determined that expanding the tournament will generate a profit. With an increase in $1,000 for advertising, 15 more college recruiters, and 20 additional face books, I calculated that the profit for adding 32 more teams to the tournament would be close to $13,000...

The Cup

...Lloyd Williams Geoffrey Agnor 7/12/14 Humanities The Cup Khyentse Norbu’s “The Cup” (Comedy, 1999) the World Cup is being held in France while two young refugees arrive at a monastery in India. While the setting and feel of the monastery would usually be serene and peaceful, it is disrupted by the excitement and hype about the world cup. The main anticipator of the World Cup is a young and mischievous student named Orgyen. Orgyen nows that the World Cup is very important to him, as do many other young boys in the monastery, and he will do anything it takes to be able to watch as much of the games as he can. As this occurs, the head of the monastery contemplates on the changes of the world and how this greatly is affecting the young boys in the monastery. Although technology and tradition and this undying difference, they can ultimately come together and create something great for both the students and the Abbot. The students, particularly Orgyen, idolize soccer and the World Cup. The fascination and wonders of other cultures bring them into a deeper love for the sport and the thrill that comes with the World Cup. These students are willing to do almost anything to be able to experience the World Cup, especially Orgyen. He goes over the line, bringing other students along, and sneaks out to watch one of the games at a place they paid money for. However, the Geko and Abbot are not at all concerned with this idea of soccer and other cultures. They only wish that the......

Craddock Cup

...the profit/contribution of the Craddock Cup. Within this context, the case asks whether the tournament should be continued, expanded or dropped. In addition, the case provides a vehicle to discuss allocation procedures and the concept of sunk costs. Finally, the case furnishes an opportunity to develop cost-volume-profit analysis within the context of relevant costs and revenues. Questions: 1. In determining whether to keep or drop the Craddock Cup, review in detail the overhead expense allocations currently used by the CYSL. Should the overhead allocations be revised, eliminated or retained? What are the financial results to the profit/loss to CYSL of the existing (32 team) Craddock Cup with any adjustments to allocations? With this analysis, should the Craddock Cup be retained? *Please see Figure 1.1 in Appendix for profit statement and relevant figures. After looking at the numbers we decided to eliminate Rivaldo’s salary, we determined that the overhead expense allocations currently in place are not appropriate. The city field rent should be eliminated from the allocated costs as the soccer league will be renting the field regardless of whether or not the Craddock Cup occurs; it is a sunk cost. This also applies to the CYSL office rent and utilities, which will be used by the employees whether or not the tournament is held. We needed to revise the salary allocation, because we do not need to allocate Rivaldo’s salary to the Craddock Cup as it is not relevant. Thus,......

Craddock Cup

...Question 1: After reviewing the overhead-expense allocations made from CYSL to the Craddock Cup we have determined that the allocations made must be revised. The allocations currently in place are based solely on direct labor hours; however, this does not lead to the most accurate allocation of expenses. For Rivaldo and Renne Jansten’s salary allocations direct labor hours makes is correct because the amount of hours they work on the tournament should be a reflection of how much they are costing the tournament. The rent and utilities on the other hand cannot be based on direct labor hours of Rivaldo because this leads to a false allocation of expenses. This cost driver depends on what work takes place in the office space. Since each player that participated in the tournament needs to be insured and registered, one potential cost driver can be the amount of players participating in the tournament. The more participants in the tournament the more paper work there is to complete which leads to more time in the office. Another potential cost driver can be the number of games played because there are records of the games before and after the game take place. The paper work before the game may be related to which team is playing and which players from the teams will be playing. The paper work after the game will be related to the result of the game such as the score, the number of substitutions, and the number penalties. Therefore the more games that occur the more time......

Craddock Cup

...the exclusive use of Y. Zou, 2016. UV1710 Rev. June 17, 2009 THE CRADDOCK CUP Jose Rivaldo shuffled through the papers on his desk and sighed. As the general manager of the Craddock Youth Soccer League (CYSL), Rivaldo was committed to providing highquality soccer activities to boys and girls in the area. In addition to managing regular CYSL operations, Rivaldo was heavily involved in putting on a regional soccer tournament, the Craddock Cup, which brought approximately 32 premier high school soccer teams from throughout the region each May. This year’s tournament, like its predecessors, had been considered a great success by players, their families, and the local community. The weather had been beautiful, the referees had been fair, and the local hotels and restaurants had profited from the influx of people. Nevertheless, Rivaldo knew that the Craddock Cup was in trouble. Tournament expenses continued to rise, while corporate sponsorships remained difficult to obtain. CYSL had founded the Craddock Cup, in part, to fund a field-acquisition program for the league, with the expectation that the tournament would generate at least $6,000 annually toward that goal. Unfortunately, with tournament profits averaging a loss of almost $4,000 a year, CYSL’s board of directors was beginning to express frustration with the lack of profits generated by the Craddock Cup. Rivaldo knew the Craddock Cup was in danger of being canceled, and that he risked losing his job......
