    League 2 had a 1-game playoff for the championship, although both teams get promoted.

    Sorry if I missed this, but how are you doing the market adjustments? Can a city fall off the eligibility list?
    Montreal Royals - 1899-1912, 1915-1922
    New England Midnight Riders - 2026-2031?

    I put together a spreadsheet of all of the Metropolitan and Micropolitan Statistical areas on the U.S and the historical census data of the counties that are included within them.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...tistical_areas

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...tistical_areas

    For this run, I'm using 200,000 population as the baseline to get a team and then I'm adding another team in that area each time they hit 1 million, 2 million, etc.

    There are teams that will fall below 200,000 after rising above, but for now I plan to leave them in (they will just be very small markets).

    The market adjustments are then based on the markets population for that year against the average population within their league. I then use this chart to produce the Market Size. So, if their population is 2 times the league average, they are Market Size 13.

    2.30-2.44 15
    2.15-2.29 14
    2.0-2.14 13
    1.80-1.99 12
    1.60-1.79 11
    1.45-1.59 10
    1.30-1.44 9
    1.15-1.29 8
    1.0-1.14 7
    0.85-0.99 6
    0.70-0.84 5
    0.55-0.69 4
    0.40-0.54 3
    0.25-0.39 2
    0.0-0.24 1

    If there are multiple teams within a market, I divide the market based on success over the previous 7 years. This is determined by wins, with a League One win being worth twice as much as a League Two win, etc.
